These days more and more people are realizing the effects their lifestyle is having on the environment and animals. There have been so many campaigns to promote vegetarianism and although there are and always will be a lot of meat eaters, just one person becoming vegetarian means that's a little less strain on the animal food source. The food companies don't always keep ethical bounds in mind and treat the animals poorly feeding them certain drugs such as growth hormones, which will end up in you when you've eaten the meat. This is just another reason why being vegetarian is becoming increasingly popular and seen as the friendlier option too. It is hard at first, but what makes it all worthwhile is when you know you are making a difference.
