Monday – 15 September – Do Meat Free (or Meatless) Monday.
If you have never heard about it before it is a global Inititive. And can be found in most countries (they may have a different day depending on the country). The reason this is kind to our world is “According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the livestock sector is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global”. The FAO estimates that livestock production is responsible for 14.5 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, while other organisations have estimated it could be as much as 51 per cent. World scientists on the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agree that we need to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by 80 per cent by 2050 in order to avoid catastrophic climate change.” Read More Here.
One way to do this is by enjoying Meat Free Mondays. Many of us are not interested in becoming vegetarians or vegans everyday, but try one day a week and see how simple it can be. And one day a week can make the world of difference! :) For awesome recipes from the Meat Free Monday Website click here. Jamie Oliver also does his own version of Meat Free Mondays (called Meatless mondays). Some of his awesome Vegetarian recipes are found here!
