The PBJ Campaign
What does peanut butter and jelly have in common with natural resources and global warming? If you can answer that, then you've probably heard of the PBJ Campaign. If not, then you're in the same boat as we are.
Basically the campaign is a very simple way of slowing down global warming, save water, and preserve land. Here is the PB&J Campaign mission statement:
Mission The PB&J Campaign is working to combat environmental destruction by reducing the amount of animal products people eat. The PB&J Campaign approaches positive change one meal at a time by illuminating the differences one single dining decision can make.
You can reduce your carbon foot print by up to 2.8 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions by eating a plant-based meal. And check this out – you can save about 133 gallons of water by eating 5 PB&Js (or other plant based meals) per month. To top that off, you can save the land as well, about 24 square feet for each plant-based lunch.
How do you figure that? You can learn more about how the PBJ Campaign came up with all these numbers by checking out this page on their website.
You can find them on Facebook, Myspace, and even Twitter. They have a blog which includes plant-based recipes. After you've read how you can make a difference in our environment, you can make a pledge, or a donation to help the cause.
Would you like to meet their Spokes-Sandwiches? Hmmm...., not sure? Well, here they are anyway. I thought it was pretty, um..., interesting ; )
So what are you waiting for? Go get your peanut butter, your jelly, and a loaf of bread, and start saving the planet – one peanut butter and jelly sandwich at a time!
Oooh - If I had known saving the planet would be this yummy, I would have made my pledge long ago!
