Think it’s impossible for a race car driver to also be eco-obsesssed? Think again! Leilani Munter is an ARCA Series driver with a heart of green.

Besides being a super talented athlete, Leilani is serious about sustainable living and most recently teamed up with Athletes Go Green — a campaign to unite players, fans and teams in an effort to paint the sports world green in the days leading up to Earth Day.

Munter recorded a PSA for the initiative and discussed one of the easiest ways to go green. In the video, she says:

“I think a lot of people don’t realize that more greenhouse gas emissions go into our atmosphere from raising animals for food than all the planes, trains, ships, automobiles, SUVs and all other forms of transportation combined. Raising animals produce methane, which is 21 times more heating trapping than Co2. So if you wanna do something good for the environment that’s easy to do, cut back on your meat intake.”
