A presentation on an under-rated topic which is dear to my heart.
I know some of you might disagree, but please spread the message: it's a real issue we should all be well aware of.
Many people are already advocating, but in the end it's up to us.

    Renee, I agree: there are many agents of pollution in the world.
    To me it wasn't obvious that animal production had such a great impact though. It blew my mind I could help reduce some pollution & improve sustainability just by eating less meat, so I thought to spread the message - this presentation was born and I'm happy you like it! :)
