Become a "Flexitarian"

I have come across this term a number of times already in 2019.

I first saw it in this recent article in The Guardian which talked about the impact that eating meat has on the environment. For many of us, changing to either a vegetarian or vegan diet is a step we are not quite ready to make - yet. However, after using the Carbon Neutral calculator, I was shocked to see the extent to which my diet impacts on my carbon footprint.

Reducing the number of meat days does have a big impact but telling others that "I eat less meat" seems to lack a little impact. However, telling someone that you are a 'flexatarian' is probably more likely to elicit a response such as "what is that?" I Googled the term and found this definition of the flexitarian diet.
