Play • 29 min

It is the end of January, the end of the first month of a new year. It's also the end of Veganuary, a challenge that takes place in January to encourage people to be vegan. I know many people have set resolutions to be more sustainable in different ways, and one of my new year's resolutions is to eat more plant-based meals. In this episode I'll talk more about veganism and plant-based diets that people within the sustainability community partake in and have conversations around.

This episode will explore:

  • the environmental impacts of animal agriculture
  • the differences between vegan, plant-based, vegetarian, and pescatarian
  • Ariel's history with vegetarianism and veganism
