A MESSAGE FROM PAUL : LESS MEAT = LESS HEAT

Hey gang,
As you may know, the climate conference (COP21) is taking place in Paris at the moment and I’m very keen for them to understand the importance of a meat-reduced diet. This is because the livestock industry is responsible for a massive percentage of greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. You may also know that we have a campaign called Meat Free Monday which encourages people to eat less meat. Please check out our Meat Free Monday website at meatfreemondays.com and, if you like the idea, tell your friends about it. Together we can all make a difference.
Love,
Paul
Paul recently filmed a short video for Meat Free Monday urging people to keep in mind the environmental benefits of meat reduction and take up the idea. Watch it below:
