Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I saw the movie Before the Flood; I work in Sustainability so I know the situation was bad. But.. it’s more than bad, it’s terrible. If we do not act immediately, we’ll leave you a destroyed world. That’s why I do not want to wait anymore. It’s not enough to be a vegetarian, to use solar energy and be a farmer in a biological csa. So I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week. Meat is a big CO2 supplier and eating meat benefits animal cruelty. I hope I can do something in this way to create a better world for you and your beloved.

xxx Yolande
