Let's Eat Better Pledge

Less meat, less junk, more plants. 

Making small changes to what we eat can keep us, and our planet, healthier. Switching to tasty, sustainable food will also help ensure that future generations have enough food to eat.

Your pledge to Eat Better will inspire others to switch to a more sustainable diet. It will show the Government and food industry that people want them to step up to the plate too, and offer better choices in restaurants and shops. 

Its easy:

  1. Enter your name and email to sign up for a monthly email with recipes and tips to help you Eat Better, and actions you can take to help others do the same.
  2. Use the cow-culator below that by clicking on a plate to find out how changing your diet will help the climate.
  3. Submit your pledge, then sit back and await your tasty tips...

Sign the pledge, and Let’s Eat Better, together.

2. Less junk

Food shouldn't be rubbish, so I'm going to cut down on the amount of processed and junk food that I eat, and the amount of food that I waste.

 

3. More plants

Natural, sustainable food is tasty - so I'm going to eat more of the good stuff, like beans and pulses.

I'm joining others to Eat Better and demand that the Government and food industry act to make it easy and affordable for everyone to do the same.

 

4. My personal pledge (optional):


Figures are based on average per capita meat consumption in the UK, and the emissions generated by rearing the types of meat eaten in the average diets, expressed in CO2 eq. ‘A bit’ less meat is taken to be a 25% reduction in meat consumption, while ‘a lot’ less meat is taken to be a 75% reduction – figures taken from analysis of this article.
