Hold the Straw; Save Marine Life
A day before the earth Day, Gallagher shared a simple thing we could all do to save marine life. We just have to give up plastic straws. It seems as if it something minor but it could actually help our oceans and all the life in it.
Gallagher himself explains:
There are up to 8.3 Billion plastic straws floating in our world’s oceans. 1M seabirds and 100k marine animals die from ingesting plastic straws.
Certainly, no one can deny the harm plastic straws put to our planet.
Meatless Mondays is a win-win Situation for All
Gallagher shares how eating pasta can save the planet as well!
One of the biggest threats to the world is climate change.
Climate change has long been a worrying problem for humanity, there’s enough scientific evidence to support that despite whatever personal opinion any politician holds.
But what has pasta got to do with any of it?
Well, Gallagher explains how meat from cows is one of the major contributors to global warming. In fact, one cow produces 176 pounds of methane per year. Collectively, cows are responsible for 260 Billion pounds of methane per year!
All this methane is the driving force behind the climate change.
By going for meatless Mondays and eating pasta instead of meat, you can help the planet and climate change.
