The Environment


I have one question... What is more important than a habitable planet earth? A very short conversation that one. We as humans are the most destructive force in this world yet also the only species capable of saving it. So let's do it! Individually, collectively we can all make a difference. For ourselves, for our children, for future generations, for humanity and for every species of life on this miraculous planet we call our home.

"I have always eaten animal flesh with a somewhat guilty conscience... Nothing will benefit health or increase chances of survival on earth as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."

Albert Einstein, 1879-1955
