Eating less meat is not only good for health but also for the environment. The production of meat is responsible for twice the pollution of production of plant-based foods.  And the good news is that it is not as boring as you might think to switch to a meatless diet ! Adopting a more sustainable lifestyle is becoming easier and easier, especially in Tamarin thanks to those awesome restaurants with great vegetarian options.
