Introducing World Meat Free Day

21 May at 10:14AM

Do you want to help change the world with just “one small step for our planet”? Of course you do!

Welcome to World Meat Free Day, which is taking place on the 15th June 2015 and aims to raise awareness of the impact meat production has on the world, and as such encourages people to pledge online to go meat free for just this one day to see the impact that can be made.

For the first time, leading organisations including The Eating Better Alliance, Compassion in World Farming and Quorn have joined forces to raise awareness of the advantages meat reduction has on health and the environment and urge a shift towards eating less meat and better quality meat when it is eaten.

So, what are the stats? Well, if 10 million people worldwide gave up meat for just one meal:

  • Reduction on CO2 emissions = equivalent to driving around the world 2,438 times
  • 885 million calories saved
  • Save 5,700 land = 89,000 tennis courts
  • 13 million tonnes of water saved = 5,000 Olympic swimming pools

Keep coming back to the blog for more World Meat Free Day news, recipes and updates. And don’t forget to tell your friends, family and colleagues to pledge.
