Project Title: The Meat Counter
Subject Matter: A website designed to show individuals the impact their meat consumption has on the environment.
Summery: The project is based around creating awareness and helping people understand the true impact the livestock industry has on the environment. A lot of people are aware that the farming of livestock has a negative impact on climate change, but some may not be aware of the full impact it has on other issues related to the environment, such as deforestation to create land for crops to feed animals, land use to rear animals, and water use to maintain livestock. This project intends to show people what impact their personal meat consumption has on the environment and attempts to get individuals to reflect on the idea that their personal habits do make a difference and consider the benefits it would have on the environment if they were to consume less meat and dairy products.
