Greenpeace launches LESS MEAT MORE VEGGIES campaign

Greenpeace has launched a global ‘less meat more veggies campaign’, supported by its offices in France, China, America and Germany among 11 others.

Its released a indepth review of industrialised meat production, identifying how “Intensive meat production is tearing down our forests, polluting our water, warming the planet and harming our health.”

They have  one ambitious goal: the reduction of meat and dairy production and consumption by at least 50% by 2050.

 What did they find out?

You can have a read of the full report here: Greenpeace livestock vision towards 2050.

What will Greenpeace’s campaign look like?

They want to exert their campaigning influence to

“demand governments to support small-scale ecological farmers instead of subsidising industrial meat companies. We can ask for more plant-based food and less meat in our schools, universities and public canteens.”

Proposal to change Vegan month from November to Summertime!

Proposed by David Gore, seconded by Thomas Micklewright: “That the vegan society move ‘vegan month’ to summertime for 2015, so that veganism can be demonstrated when vegan foods a most seasonably available and the weather is more conducive to outdoor activities and demonstrations.”

LVS Flyer thumbnailIf we posted some of these flyers to you, could you put them in your local shops / cafes? Every #FlyerFriday we take to twitter to enocurage people to spread the word through print.

Social media is important but flyers in cafes are still a brilliant way to spread the message and find veggies and vegans who don’t already know about their local veg*n society.

Therefore, please could you:


Greek Vegans need your help for new Camden bistro!

greekvegEvangelos and a friend from The Vegan Greek are a couple of Greek vegan chefs who plan to open a new restaurant in Covent Garden or the wider Camden area. They will be offering traditional Greek cusine -delicious vegan dishes but your help to suggest an appropriate place!

Requirements: kitchen and buffet plus half a dozen of tables for sitting. If anyone can suggest a place and give an estimation of cost please get in touch with them on their Facebook group.

“Our beliefs about food are tied to personal and social well-being. The Vegan Greek strives to promote the idea that a sustainable, healthy culture depends on humankind living as “lightly” as possible, mitigating the damage wrought on the environment and ourselves. Greeks have been cooking and eating vegan food for thousands of years. This healthy, delicious alternative to soy products and bland veggies will be offered in our new Greek Restaurant!” Evangelos
