Meat Free May
Most people eat meat twice a day without even thinking about it. But the amount of meat and fish we feast on is damaging our planet and our health.
- Livestock production makes up 14.5% of total global greenhouse gas emissions and is one of the causes of deforestation and climate change.
- Our taste for fish had been stripping the seas; over 70% of the world’s fish stocks are over or fully exploited.
- Our health is suffering: a shift to lower-meat diets in the UK could prevent 45,000 early deaths each year and save the NHS over £1.2 billion per year.
But cutting down on the amount of meat and fish we eat can seem daunting. What do you cook instead? How do you get the right balance of nutrients?
Over the past three years we've helped thousands of you to find out. But now we've got some new plans...
Over 2017 we're going to be exploring some exciting new ways to help you kick off a less and better meat diet. This means we won't be offering any support for Meat Free May this year.
Don't worry though - all our existing resources, including tasty tips and meat-free recipes, are still available if you fancy having a meat-free month any time in 2017.
