MFM is an environmental campaign which raises awareness of the climate-changing impact of meat production and consumption, so by just having one day meat free can make a difference.
About the Meat Free Campaign
Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that livestock production is responsible for up to 18 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
In 2010, a study carried out by Oxford University’s department of public health found that eating meat no more than three times a week could prevent 31,000 deaths from heart disease, 9,000 deaths from cancer and 5,000 deaths from stroke, as well as save the NHS £1.2 billion in costs each year.
These are just some of the reasons why Meat Free Monday campaign was started.
How to get involved
That’s easy! simply take one day a week where you swap meaty dishes for a vegetarian option. This doesn’t have to be dull, boring or tasteless but fun, delicious and knowing you are helping the world.
