“The Impact of Animal Agriculture on Sustainability” at KSB January 10
On Wednesday, January 10, members of Healthy World Sedona (“HWS”) will present a discussion on the widely accepted science that identifies animal agriculture as a major contributor to global warming. This event is a part of Keep Sedona Beautiful’s Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series.
Free to members, residents and visitors – all are welcome to join Keep Sedona Beautiful (“KSB”) at 5:30 p.m. at its historic Pushmataha Center on 360 Brewer Road. The evening will include complimentary appetizers donated by El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano and refreshments provided by KSB.
For the evening’s lecture, Donald Fries, Beverly Bow and Jon Thompson will delve into some of the reasons why this information has not received the attention of environmentalists that it deserves. The presenters will also discuss how each person’s change in diet can have a hugely positive and immediate effect on reversing climate change, with many additional benefits as well.
