You can make a Real difference on:
Climate Change & Biodiversity loss
Meat production is a massive producer of greenhouse gas emissions and why millions of hectares of rain-forest land are chapped every year destroying unique biodiversity.
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.
You Have the Power to make the Future better and You can do Something About It now
Change can be done by everybody! By taking up the Malta Meat Free Week challenge you can make a real difference.
There are many reasons why you should remove or decrease the consumption of meat from your diet. This could be for health reasons, to combat climate change and biodiversity loss, animal suffering, world hunger or even to safeguard for your own health from the abuse of antibiotics by the livestock farming industry. Whatever the reason take a break from all meat (and fish) and help cleanse your body.
Go one week zero meat.
If you don’t like seeing pictures of violence towards animals being posted, you need to help stop the violence, not the pictures.

Good Food Good Living
Friends of the Earth Malta and Eco Market Malta have joined forces and are organising 2-day market and celebration focusing on everything good for people and planet.
The event includes a market-place with several approved and vetted vendors with a variety of every-day products, such as sustainable housewares, ethical fashion, non-toxic personal care products, arts and crafts. The October edition of the Eco Market will be however putting the spotlight on the thousands of local farmers who work hard every single day to produce wonderful, healthy, refreshing food for our plates. Expect to find therefore stalls with local fresh organic produce, natural food and snacks as well as food trucks with the most genuine and mouthwatering food.
A big thanks to these organisations for supporting us!

It is because of this that we strongly encourage you to also support the Malta Meat Free Week campaign by buying their products and supporting our sponsors.
These organisations including NGOs and blogs have chosen to support Malta Meat Free Week with their members and followers. We thank them for the support and for helping us spread the message to a wider audience. Together we can make a real difference!
