Most people in the UK eat meat every day. Breaking this habit would significantly reduce our demand on land and natural resources, reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the prevalence of health problems that are linked to high meat consumption.
Come Veg With Me is about enjoying good food in good company and demonstrating that you don’t need meat to make a meal. This isn’t about turning people veggie, but we do want to inspire people to change their habits. Even a small reduction in meat eating will be significant in the long run.
In exchange for your lovely meal, you can ask your guests to commit to reduce their meat consumption. Here’s a choice of two tools that you can use to get that commitment.
- Part-Time Carnivore provide meat-reducing pledges for groups, organisations and local communities. You can either request your own local pledge or sign people up to an existing pledge.
- The DoNation is all about donating by doing. You can get your guests to sponsor your meal by making a carbon-cutting pledge and suggest that they choose to ‘veg out‘.
Whichever pledge you use, why not make yourself a meat-o-meter to entertain your guests:
