Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron Deliver a Powerful Message about Our Environment
Posted on 24 October 2016
Arnold Schwarzenegger recently teamed up with award-winning director James Cameron to deliver a powerful message about the importance of a vegetarian and vegan lifestyle to environmental sustainability. Schwarzenegger has previously teamed up with The Wild Conservation Society to denounce poachers for killing the endangered African Elephant. Cameron has been a vegan advocate for several years, spearheading many campaigns with pro-vegan organizations.
In this new video, the action star and the Avatar director team up to explain how disastrous the animal farming industry can be to the planet. Wasteful animal farming practices are responsible for 18 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. That’s more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transportation combined. 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide per year are produced by livestock and their byproducts alone. Schwarzenegger and Cameron argue that if cattle crop farmland was converted into crop farmland for human consumption, methane production would be reduced and world hunger could be greatly alleviated.
What Can You Do To Help?
There are many small, everyday things you can do to help reduce carbon emissions. One of the easiest is to buy vegan footwear. There are many cruelty-free and environmentally friendly materials that provide the same look, quality and comfort as traditional leather shoes. Sole & Stone offers high quality, classic-style, dress shoes that happen to be 100% vegan too – but you would never know.
