The PB&J Campaign aims to raise awareness about the positive environmental impact one could make by simply eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich instead of a meat-based alternative. For instance, you could save 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions, 280 gallons of water, and 12 to 50 square feet of land by choosing a PBJ instead of a hamburger. If you're not a fan of peanut butter and jelly, there are plenty of other tasty environmentally friendly alternatives that can help slow global warming, reduce water waste, and save land.
