    Wish there was more awareness about this throughout the firm, not just in our local offices!

    Many states and countries have advisories on eating fish. Find out what is advised for your region. Do you think your diet choices fall within these guidelines? What steps do you need to take to make sure that they do?

    Forgot to submit my daily actions for 1/2 the month, but I believe every month should be earth month. It's time people shift their lifestyles to be less wasteful and more thoughtful about the environment!

    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?
