I can’t believe five years ago this week I became vegetarian.

It started in my environmental science high school class, where we talked about the environmental effects of meat and watched a documentary called Food, Inc. After the viewing, my classmate Roxane and I decided that the day after Thanksgiving, we would both give vegetarianism a try. Long story short, she never started (as far as I know), but I never stopped. My main reasons for going vegetarian are about 70% environmental reasons, 20% (animal) ethical reasons and 10% because my favorite band at the time (and still today), Rise Against, are meat-free, as well.
