Grey's Anatomy's Jessica Capshaw Hearts Green But Won't Give Up Meat!
Actress Jessica Capshaw has gone green…well, kinda.
The Grey’s Anatomy star recently opened up to EcoStiletto.com about her newly green life, crediting pregnancy for making her more environmentally-conscious.
These days Capshaw buys local, carries stainless steel water bottles, drives a Prius and eats organic. However, when it comes to dinner, Jessica just can’t put down the burgers. She says:
“I’m a Midwesterner! Not being able to have a cheeseburger once in a while would be torture!”
Here’s the thing: it’s not my opinion that eating meat is bad for the environment…it’s a fact! Half the water we use in this country goes to livestock. Animal agriculture contributes more to global warming than every mode of transportation COMBINED. Deforestation, pollution, the extinction of species — all of these are exacerbated by modern animal agriculture.
Don’t freak yet though — Jessica seems to be on her way. She continues on to say:
“I know the reasons to become vegetarian and the more I think about them I know I need to stop eating red meat.”
We concur. Do you? Chime in and leave a comment encouraging Jessica to take the next step and commit to vegetarianism. We have a sneaky suspicion that she (or someone she knows) will eventually read this post, and you never know just what your words might help inspire. The floor is yours.
