Fit Father Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots

Fatherhood has been amazing to me so far and I look forward to raising my child and strengthening the family bond. From Fit Father and husband responsibilities to playing on the field for the Patriots I have always approached every task with top leadership qualities. It’s been a joy watching my little girl grow and shine in just this first month. I’m eagerly anticipating my obligations along the way while showing her how to be a great and honorable individual.

Meatless Monday Movement Celebrates Earth Day

This Saturday, April 22, is Earth Day, an annual event to honor our planet we call home. For those who want to make a positive difference on the environment this week, and every week of the year, there’s an easy delicious way: join the Meatless Monday movement. Meatless Monday is a grassroots movement organized and promoted by advocates around the world who inspire individuals, schools, restaurants and even entire governments to get involved. Currently, there are home-grown initiatives in more than 40 countries, pledging to “one day a week, cut out meat” for their health and the health of the planet.

Earth Day turns 47 years old this year and now more than ever we need to join our efforts to achieve the United Nations’ 2015 Climate Change Conference (COP21) goal: to limit the increase in emissions by 2050 to less than two percent. But even with successful changes from energy and transportation sectors, this goal cannot be met—unless everyone also decreases meat consumption. Nearly 15% of global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are due to production of meat, dairy, and eggs. In many countries, meat consumption is an indicator of wealth; consequently, as incomes rise, the intake of meat and dairy is also rising across the globe.

That’s why there’s no better time to join the Meatless Monday movement. These global climate changes – from Greenland’s melting ice sheet to rising sea levels threatening the islands of Kiribati, India – continue to be in the headlines. And a major contributor to many of these ecological harms is meat consumption, which is projected to double by 2050, as more developing countries adopt a Western meat-centric diet and the overall world population rises.

This Earth Day, countless schools, restaurants and civic communities around the world are doing their part to turn back the clock on global warming and its innumerable ills. By joining the Meatless Monday movement, you’re signaling your willingness to fight for health: the health of both you and the planet.
