On July 5, nine Nepali women will set out to climb seven of the highest summits on all seven continents in order to draw attention to climate change. For the mission, they have all adopted a vegan diet after learning how dramatically human food choices can negatively affect the environment. They will also make the project carbon neutral by using carbon offsetting via solar lanterns, bio-gas, and planting trees in Himalayan villages. The team will be setting a world record upon completion of their mission, which begins with the climbing of Mount Kosciuszko in Australia. In May 2008, the team successfully scaled Mount Everest.
