Meat Free Mondays!

So I should really do a post about Meat Free Mondays on a Monday but by the time I write about it next Monday, we'll be halfway through the day and you'd have to wait a whooole week more to take part! So here we go!

Meat Free Monday is an environmental campaign to raise awareness of the climate-changing impact of meat production and consumption. Livestock production is responsible for 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions and commercial fishing continues to wipe out biodiversity as miles of weighted nets drag along the sea floor, taking delicate coral-based habitats with them and sweeping up all the fish in their path, including a vast amount of the wrong species, which are then thrown dead back into the water. Here's a much prettier list of facts!

So by cutting your meat consumption by just 1/7, you could help to make a massive difference - to the environment, to your health and to the farmed animals themselves!

I don't eat (mammal or bird) meat, but I do eat fish, and I'm endeavouring to stop eating fish on Mondays, which will hopefully start to make a difference. So join with supporters including Richard Branson, Woody Harrelson, Mat Lucas, Monty Don, Twiggy, David Walliams and the McCartneys and make your Mondays Meat Free!

Have a look at Meat Free Mondays and Support Meat Free Mondays for more information, recipes and restaurant reviews!

I'll be back on Monday with my patented veggie chilli recipe - what are your favourite veggie-friendly recipes?
