Replacing a meat/dairy meal once a day with one of banana and peanut butter is one of the tips for combating climate change touted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Tuesday.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out a list of recommendations she’d given to teens at a school assembly on Monday. The list includes skipping meat and “incorporating thrift, consignment & second-hand clothes in your wardrobe”:

Yesterday I visited a school assembly w/ teens in Queens. One of them asked, “What can WE do to combat climate change?” 2 recs: - Skip disposable razors+switch to safety razors - Give your tummy a break! Skip meat/dairy for a meal (easiest is bfast, I do banana & peanut butter)

My other tips: - Start incorporating thrift, consignment & second-hand clothes in your wardrobe (host a clothing swap w/ friends for a no-spend option) - Walk, bike, & use public transit more often - Bring your own bag/coffee mug. It’s okay if you forget, 1x/week is still a win
