World Meat Free Day

Published on 09 June 2017

World Meat Free Day is to raise awareness of the benefits of eating less meat for a healthier, balanced diet that’s better for our planet and fairer to our food systems too. With the population set to rise by over 30% by 2050*, the demand for meat simply cannot be met. That’s why we need your help more than ever.

If you give up meat for just one meal, you would save:

  • Enough carbon emissions to boil a kettle 388 times
  • The daily water usage of nine people
  • Up to 11g of fat, equivalent to two whole teaspoons of butter
  • Up to 90 calories, about as much as two rich tea biscuits

So, we’re asking you to go meat free just for one day on the 12th June, so you can see not only the impact it can have on your health and the environment, but also how delicious and easy it can be, so that you consider going meat free more often in the future.
