Is a simple concept that everyone can embrace and make an impact on their own health and the health of our planet.

Findings by a United Nations report in 2006, found that the livestock industry was responsible for more greenhouse emissions that the entire transport sector. That is HUGE!

In addition to this livestock production is land intensive and is responsible for more deforestation than soya,

  • its water intensive and accounts for over 8% of global water use (sounds small, but that is a big figure when we talk global),
  • it is responsible for the majority (nearly ½) stream and river pollution through water pollutants, principally, hormones, antibiotics, chemicals and sediments and
  • 1/3 of all cereal groups grown worldwide go to feed these animals not HUMANS.

So what impact does MEAT FREE MONDAY'S have on you and the planet?

Assuming you decrease your intake of meats by 15%, that's one day, you lessen the risk of chronic preventable diseases significantly, that's a definite plus, as well as making a noteworthy conscious contribution to making our planet a healthier better place…..
