“Try reducing meat consumption–a small step will go a long way in saving our planet”

Posted on: 26 October 2017

Chief Guest of the Opening Ceremony, Amruta Devendra Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra CM, Devendra Fadnavis, commented, “As Gandhiji said, Non- Violence is a weapon of the strong; it is a sword that heals. ”

She continued, “A number of resources utilized for a non-vegetarian diet are much higher than a vegetarian one. It takes about 2,500 gallons of water to produce half a kg of meat whereas it takes less than 25 gallons of water to produce the same quantity of wheat. This gives an idea that by turning vegan how drastically we can reduce water footprints.  Those who cannot immediately change their lifestyles should try reducing the consumption of meat; a small step will go a long way in saving our planet and of course, add to health benefits. Our beloved Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a vegetarian at the age of 67; he works so hard and his enthusiasm is viral.”
