If you make just *ONE* meal out of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich you would reduce your environmental impact by about 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. That is 40% of the C02 reduction you would get by driving a hybrid car for a day. If you have this lunch just once a week for about a month you will save more water than if you installed a low-flow showerhead. This weekly habit would save about 24 square feet of arable land from being destroyed by agricultural pollution and deforestation. All of that accomplishment from just one single plant based lunch, once a week.
