Eat More Veg
Eat a little less meat
Eating meat impacts on the environment, from growing or farming animal feed to the water that’s used to grow feed crops and raise animals – not to mention cow methane farts. You’ll be healthier, avoid supporting the often inhumane practices around industrial-scale meat production, and you can do it on a budget
Being a vegetarian or vegan is ideal, but anyone can help by eating a little less meat. We’re working with our food outlets, WTMS and the Vic Bar, to make veg options clearer and more of them.
What can you do?
- choose the vegetarian option – question where your meat comes from, especially where the origin is hidden, in cafes and restaurants – eat less, but better quality meat – tackle restaurants and food outlets to offer more non-meat options – check out the Veg Society and the Vegans for info and recipes – get involved here at the GSA in promoting better food
