Meat-free Mondays

We love our meat! And these days we eat more meat than ever. One very important way to reduce our impact on the environment is to love meat a little bit less.

The Squeeze: According to Sustainable Table people in developed countries eat more than 80kg of meat, that is roughly their own weight in meat, each year.

Raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the cars, trucks, trains, ships and planes in the world combined.

Don’t worry - you don’t have to commit to a vegetarian diet full-time! But why not try going meat-free for just one day a week? You’ll help cut carbon pollution, save money and learn some  new protein-rich recipes. 

Living Lime: Music legend Paul McCartney and his daughter, fashion designer Stella McCartney, have launched Meat Free Mondays. This is a campaign to show people just how easy it can be to eat meat-free for just one day a week. They have loads of great tips and recipes! 

To squeeze some more green out of your day: Only buy organic, or at least free-range meat.
