On Tuesday 23 September world leaders are gathering in New York to discuss climate change. The first time the UN has tackled the subject since 2009.
Friends of the Earth are working with other organisations to get as many people as possible to pledge to go meat free for one day a week. This simple step will show world leaders that we’re serious about reducing global emissions.
Please pledge to go meat free for just one day a week before next Tuesday.
Did you know?
- Livestock production is responsible for over 14.5% of global greenhouse gases
- 75% of agricultural land is used to raise animals for food
- Every hour an area of rainforest the size of 100 football pitches is cut down to create room for grazing cattle
Eating less meat is an easy way to reduce our climate impact and anyone can do it. Already vegetarian, vegan or flexitarian? You can still sign the pledge to show your support.
Worried about what to eat? Download our Eat Smart Pack full of handy tips and advice or invest in a delicious vegetarian cook book.
One small change can make such a big difference, so please show your support before next Tuesday and let’s show world leaders that we’re serious about tackling climate change.
