Meatless Mondays Australia is a non-profit initiative that is part of an international campaign to encourage people to cut out meat on Mondays to improve their health and the health of the planet.
Reducing meat consumption by 15% (the equivalent of one day a week) not only lessens the risk of chronic preventable illness but also helps slow climate change.
Internationally, Meatless Monday/Meat Free Monday is currently represented in over ten countries, including USA, Britain and Canada, with wide reach and support from campaigners such as Sir Paul McCartney, Ricky Gervais, Moby, Yoko Ono, Bryan Adams, Sir Richard Branson, Sheryl Crow, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, Michael Pollan, Greenpeace UK, Oxfam UK just to name a few.
By having at least one meatless day a week you can make a real difference in the world. The more people who join in, the bigger the impact we can have on the planet.
