BENEFITING: GIRLS GONE GREEN INC
While eating meat is a personal choice, we feel strongly that the consumption of meat is one of the root causes of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, environmental pollution, massive deforestation, and a host of other ails disrupting earth's equilibrium. Our interconnected biosphere is reaching a critical mass, and the time has come for us to find effective solutions for this problem.
There is a direct connection between our personal health and the health of our environment. Our health is a gift, and digestion of meat takes a heavy toll on our internal systems. By reducing our meat intake, we allow our body a much-needed rest. As we give our bodies a rest it also begins to affect our community and planet by slowing the excessive demand for meat products.
During the course of the month, The Girls Gone Green, Ananda Kula, Jacksonville Health and Wellness and Northeast Florida Vegetarian Society will hold space for speakers, films, classes, and a dialogue about the effects of a carnivorous life on our health and our planet. We aim to educate while having fun. Trips, fund raisers, potlucks, and a number of community-building events will allow for a deeper connection within our community, promoting positivity, education, and health.
With sincerity, we hope you'll join us for our community experiment, No Meat March!
