THE practice of designating one day a week as meat-free is becoming a global phenomenon. And no wonder when the environmental, human health and animal welfare benefits are so substantial. Given that climate is one of the biggest challenges we all face, going meat-free one day a week is a simple action that each of us can take, and one that will lower our impact on the planet. This is because, according to the United Nations, the breeding and killing of animals for food is responsible for more global greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transport sector worldwide. The production of meat and other animal products also uses much more land, energy and water than plant-based agriculture.

In a hungry world with limited resources, it is far more efficient to grow food to feed us directly - rather than first passing it through animals. Going meat-free is simple, delicious and healthy too. You can also lower your risk of developing diet-related illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. So why not start with a meat-free Monday?
