Running from 17th – 23rd June 2019, we are partnered with Meat Free Week to help encourage more people to explore going meat free.

Why? Experts say that the developed world needs to reduce meat consumption by 50% by 2050! Start now, you may be surprised by how much carbon equivalent emissions you can save simply with each meal without meat.

1 meat free meal is the carbon equivalent of boiling 388 kettles, or the same amount of calories as a chocolate cookie, or 8 days of water for personal use!

Why not see how many people you can convince to have a meat free meal during this week! You can even challenge them to try going vegan for 21 days with our Easy Vegan Challenge.

Can’t bear to be without your bangers for the week? No worries! The Vegan Society brings you the inaugural Vegan Sausage Awards, to be judged on 21st June.
