veggie month

If you really care about animals, the best way you can help is to stop eating them!

Each year in the UK alone approximately 1,000 million animals are farmed and killed for food – and that figure doesn’t include fish.

The average meat-eater consumes around 11,000 animals in their lifetime (including fish and shellfish). Think of all the lives YOU will save simply by turning vegetarian or vegan!

As well as being more humane, an animal-free diet is healthy, environmentally friendly and a better way to use the world’s precious resources.

There are many reasons to go veggie including animal welfare, health, environmental protection and cost. If you are concerned about one or more of these issues, why not take the opportunity to try some more meat-free meals during March or take the veggie challenge?
