SAVE OUR PLANET
GO ONE WEEK ZERO MEAT
MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE
For Climate Change & Biodiversity Loss
The best lifestyle change you can do to help save the environment, counter climate change and safeguard biodiversity is to go meat free. Meat production is a massive producer of greenhouse gas emissions and the reason why millions of hectares of rain-forest land are chopped every year destroying unique biodiversity. Add with this the amount of methane released into the atmosphere because of dairy farming.
Try the Malta Meat Free Week challenge in October between the 5th and the 11th – and go one week – zero meat.
6 million animals are killed for food every hour. By the time you finish reading this article around 1 million animals would have been killed. In just one day over 150 million animals are killed for food around the world (just on land excluding fish).
The World Health Organisation has classified processed meats including ham, salami, bacon as a Group 1 carcinogen. Red meat, such as beef, lamb and pork has been classified as a ‘probable’ cause of cancer.
An estimated one third of the world’s cerewal harvest is fed to farm aniamls. That same harvest would be enough grain to feed about 3 billion animals.
