01 Nov The Meat Free Challenge
With the increase of information available to us about the impact of eating meat on our health and the environment, the emergence of vegetarian and vegan challenges and events has also increased.
One of the most famous of these challenges comes from the Meat Free Monday organisation founded by celebrities Sir Paul McCartney, Mary McCartney and Stella McCartney.
“Taking part in Meat Free Week is a fun and easy way to have a positive impact on the planet and on our health. It’s also a way to become familiar with a whole variety of meat free foods and extend our range of imaginative menus. Enjoy!” – Sir Paul McCartney.
The attention that this campaign has brought to the Meat Free Movement has been one of the major contributors in getting people thinking about the implications of eating a meat based diet and has in turn seen the rise in Meat Free challenges.
There are various events across the globe encouraging people to cut meat consumption, such as that of Meat Free Week in Australia, Meat Free Mondays in the city of Sacramento, California and Go Vegan in November in Scotland. This has in turn resulted in the creation of World Meat Free Day every June and the global movement of Meatless Monday which involves more than 44 countries worldwide.
