Are you up to the Meat Free Week challenge?
For the third year we’ve joined forces Bowel Cancer Australia to support Meat Free Week. Can you give up meat for seven days and raise funds for animals in need?
Going meat free from 23rd to the 29th September creates a great opportunity to start thinking about how much meat you eat and the impacts eating too much meat can have.
Your choices have the power to make real change for your health, for animals, and for the planet. Are you up for the challenge?
Simply sign up and select World Animal Protection as your charity so that the funds you raise can go to giving farm animals lives worth living. You’ll receive recipes to help make the week easy and tasty!
Here’s what Simone Clarke our Executive Director for Australia had to say about eating less meat:
“Even if you’ve ruled out going vegetarian or vegan there are still positive choices you can make to improve the lives of farm animals in Australia and around the world.
“Beyond Meat Free Week, we recommend the “lower/higher” rule of thumb. That is: “lower” your meat consumption and choose “higher” welfare meat products if you do choose to eat meat.
“While World Animal Protection is not a vegan organization, we do understand the huge effect that eating less, but higher welfare, meat can for animals, health and the planet.
Meat Free Week may be aimed at meat eaters, but there are still ways for vegetarians and vegans to get involved. You can also encourage meat-eating family and friends to take a break from meat for a week and discover some great, meat-free, plant-based alternatives.
Together, we can move the world to protect billions of farm animals from cruelty and suffering.
