Green your Cuisine

Meat Free Monday

Climate Week is partnering with
Meat Free Monday, the campaign
led by Sir Paul McCartney to
encourage people to go meat-free
one day a week. The United Nations
estimates that livestock production
accounts for about 15% of the
greenhouse gas emissions that
cause climate change, so
reducing meat consumption is a key
way to lower your carbon footprint.

Organise a meat-free meal for family
and friends during Climate Week, or hold a meat-free lunch at your workplace or school. Don’t forget to register your meal on the Climate Week website so it will appear in the official listings of activities happening across the country and you will be part of a national movement for change.

“Join me in making a meat-free meal on the Monday of Climate Week. Eating more fruit and vegetables and less meat is an easy and enjoyable way to combat climate change.” – Sir Paul McCartney
