By the Canadian Press, InsideOttawaValley, February 18, 2020 Mia Kelly, 17, decided to become vegetarian after marching in last fall's climate strike in Ottawa. "After that, climate change was really on my mind a lot," she said. "And then I realized that switching to a vegetarian or vegan diet was the biggest thing I could do as an individual."
Her friend Nelson Oser-Small, 17, has also adopted vegetarianism."Honestly it's like a trend now to become vegan or vegetarian," he said. "A lot of my friends are taking a bigger interest in climate change and they know that eating less meat will help."
