Green Your Thanksgiving: Spare the Turkey
Tip #3: Go Turkey-Free
For some, it's all about the bird. But, as readers of this blog have pointed out, if having the greenest possible Thanksgiving is your goal, a vegetarian or vegan feast is the solution. With more than 45 million genetically modified turkeys raised in overcrowded factory farms for Thanksgiving day alone, dispelling tradition can be a greener, kinder, healthier alternative.
Regardless of your reason for going turkey-free this year, delicious alternatives are easy to find. Check out vegetarian options at vegkitchen.com, try Tofurkey (it's good), or, if you're inclined, go entirely vegan. If eating meat-free isn't enough for you (or if you feel bad enough about the meat you are eating), save a turkey's life through Adopt a Turkey.
