    Default Is vegan green dining?

    So is being a vegan or vegetarian qualify as green dining? Or is this too literal?

    Default if we were all vegans, will we have to sterilize animals?

    I think that at the moment we overeat on meat causing overfarming, deforestation, etc. However, if the whole world suddenly would give up eating animals, we would equally create an imbalance. The key is, as usual, BALANCE. Me for instance, I eat meat or fish only 2 or 3 times per week. Afterwards, I don't even feel like it anymore. If everybody started to put a few vegan or vegi days into his diatary plan, we would already achieve a lot.

    Well are you saying that being vegan or vegetarian is green dining not just because you're eating green leafy vegetables?

    Default Green in the environmental sense

    I was more thinking of the environmental impact of vegan and vegitarian dining. I think that at the moment people need to restrict their consumption of meat and fish because too much meet is produced and we are emptying our oceans. Somewhere there is the right balance. Many people eat meat every day and I think that is wrong and immoral.

    I agree with Tecshift. And look what too much meat and all that has brought America. Too much obesity cases.

    Default Green veggies?

    Eating as a vegetarian doesn't make you "green" friendly, i think there is alot more involved than just what you eat. You have to think about how the food gets there, how its processed and other factors. I would say listen to your body and make yourself happy with what you eat.

    Farmed animals produce more greenhouse gas emissions (18%) than the world’s entire transport system including avitation (13.5%).
    }TOTAL LIE! Agriculture produces 30% of HGHGs, 29% is from slash and burn farming! That is aviation, learn to spell! The transportation HGHGs is mostly from diesel ships and trucks, then jet travel/transport, then personal transport for a total of 27% of the HGHGs, power plants produce 35% of HGHGs and non-ag non-shpg industry produces 8% (foundries, mining, and cement plants)

    Thirty percent of the earth’s entire land surface – a massive 70% of all agricultural land – is used for rearing farmed animals. (ref: The Vegetarian Society).} another BS source, pastures for farm animals makes up 40% of ag land!{

    If we are concerned about how much we drive and fly, we should DEFINITELY be concerned about how much meat/dairy we eat. Veganism is definitely a green lifestyle choice; it also ethical for a number of other reasons (animal welfare/the third world, to name two).
    }Humans are omnivores and require several critical nutritional supplements if going vegetarian. Meat eating should be lessened, but vegetarianism uses up soil also, especially with overpopulation. Now there is only about a quarter of the good farm soil we had a hundred years ago, because of overpopulation's demands, poor farming practices, lack of sufficient composting and the flush and forget, bury the dead in refined metal or produce HGHGs cremating.

    It could be that many old members have had their emails stolen and spammed by all the unknown hackers here, at this really pro business/increased consumption, including non-green ads all over, site.
    The fact is that the ONLY way for a restaurant to be green is to have all walk in customers, cook with solar only, or wind generated power to heat electric stoves.
    All the food would have to be VERY local or grown in an Earthship or similar greenhouse self heated. All energy used, non-emissions power for EVERYTHING.
    So, the reality is that there probably are NO green restaurants. So what is the friggin point of this stupid section?????? NONE!!!
