“Without a doubt getting animals out of our diet is a massive step that we have to make and it’s something that we can do as individuals that will have way more impact than anything else we do in our lives. Then from that point onwards It’s about consumption, it’s about reducing consumption… It’s about reducing the amount of energy we consume which is tied up in vehicles and junk that we buy and all that kind of thing.
It’s about reducing our impact on the planet by reducing our consumption. And learning to live with natural products and living with less and enjoying living with less.” -Dr. Mike Joy
