The World Meat Free Day matters a lot to us. Here in Belgium we introduced Thursday Veggieday: every Thursday people are encouraged to eat a veggie meal. Small steps are important, so taking part in a global meatless day is important for raising a basic awareness, just like we do with the Thursday Veggieday campaign. Every step counts.

Jean Cristophe Novelli

It was an honour for me to have been asked to be involved in World Meat Free Day this year and to have been invited to take part in the eye-opening experience which was the sustainable eating challenge. I did not realise that I could reduce my carbon footprint so significantly by making a few minor changes to my lifestyle, such as reducing the amount of meat I was eating. It has made me realise that I have to do my share of protecting my children’s future as well as encouraging others to do the same.

“Plant-based dishes richly deserve their day in the limelight. World Meat Free Day is a brilliant opportunity to discover the magic chefs can work with vegetables and pulses and remind ourselves that it’s cheaper, healthier and better for the planet to eat a little less meat. And eating meat a bit less often, means that when we do, we can afford the very best.” Tom Tanner

Barts Health NHS Trust

There is strong evidence linking vegetarian and vegan lifestyles with healthier people. These lifestyles are also more environmentally friendly given that meat production has a huge carbon footprint. At Barts Health NHS Trust we are helping to improve our communities’ health and well-being and we achieved carbon savings of 48,511 tonnes through our sustainability programme (cutting waste, saving energy and water etc.) but there’s still more to be done. Therefore we would like to support the meat free day in our hospitals by promoting meat free options in our restaurants.

Compassion in world farming

There is an urgent need to reduce meat consumption, especially from factory farmed animals. Factory farming is unsustainable – for our health, for the planet and for farm animals. But there’s a simple, positive solution that we can all be a part of, which allows us to eat well and reduce our environmental impact – cutting down on meat and choosing higher welfare when we do eat meat. Reducing meat consumption is one of the biggest things we can do to help tackle climate change and ensure a more efficient, humane and sustainable food system. World Meat Free Day is a great way for people to explore what the food on our plates is doing to people, the planet and animals, and to see how small changes to our diet can – literally – change the world.

Friends of the Earth

Eating less and better meat is crucial for our health and a thriving planet. Encouraging people to experience tasty alternatives to meat, just for a day, is a great way of stimulating longer term change in our diets. But along with people taking up the challenge we need Government and food businesses to step up and help make this urgent change a reality.

Ecotricity

Dale Vince, Ecotricity founder, said: “We shouldn’t see Meat Free Day in terms of giving something up, but as actually being liberated from meat – it’s a kind of freedom from meat day. All the good things that we’re told we get from eating animals the animals themselves get from plants – meat is just the middle man and like all middle men there is an inefficiency. Meat Free Day is a great opportunity to cut out the middle man and see how a plant-based diet opens up a whole new world of food.”

The goal of our NGO is to draw attention to the environmental effects of our food consumption habits. We believe that if we connect environmentally friendly thinking with something enjoyable (aka: a tasty meal), we can motivate people to be green in other areas of their life as well.

Wellcome Trust

In support of World Meat Free Day all catering and hospitality at the Wellcome Trust in London will be meat free on Monday 13 June. We believe that global health is under serious threat with humanity facing profound questions about how the planet can healthily sustain nine billion people by 2050. Demand for food is rising, fresh water is becoming scarce, and climate change is impacting disease spread. We are strategically committed to connecting environment, nutrition and health, and know that we need to think differently about how we manage our resources so that everyone can enjoy a healthy life. Challenging assumptions about what we are accustomed to eating must be part of the solution.

Greenpeace

"I challenge people to join us in fixing our broken global food system by being conscious consumers. Our vision is to create a sustainable food system where we grow enough food to feed the world yet still reduce the pressure we place on our planet. A system where the rights of millions of farmers are protected and animal welfare is not a choice but a given. However, this vision can't be made reality if we collectively continue to eat as much meat as we do now. Pledging not to eat meat for one day (or more!) is a direct way individuals can say enough is enough against our current model of industrial agriculture." said Jamie Choi, Global Campaign Leader for Greenpeace International's Food Campaign.

Nic's Nutrition

''Eating a more plant-based diet is not only good for the environment but it's great for your health (and wallet too!). Plant-based diets are often lower in calories and higher in fibre in comparison to diets that are based around meat, and are often more filling too. I would recommend everyone has a go at having at least one meat-free day a week, so I'm all for a World Meat Free Day!''
