100 Word Rant on Why To Be Vegetarian

Megan Justesen, Assistant Editor

As a vegetarian, I am biased, however, I think vegetarianism is positive for countless reasons, and more should consider the switch. To begin, it benefits the environment. By more people becoming vegetarian, it’s possible to greatly reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions as the raising of cattle pushes many of these into the atmosphere. With the world combusting, we need change, and you can start it. Additionally, becoming vegetarian saves the lives of animals. Animals deserve rights too. They share the same earth, and need the simple right to live. To continue, meat ain’t even that good. Consider vegetarianism! Bars!
