3 MPs and 60 Councillors – are currently reviewing how to implement it in schools and council buildings, our Motion was “For Southwark Council to officially support #Southwark #MeatFreeMondays and to implement meat free meals on Mondays in all the council buildings and the promotion of the meat-free option over the meat option in council run schools (meat will still be made available on request).”
Schools – encourage your school to take part. It’s a great way to reduce child-obesity and teach healthy eating.
25 Restaurants and cafes – ask your local eatery if they could do a meat free option.
4 Churches and faith groups – get your congregation involved, St Stephen’s Dulwich did!

Why should everyone in Southwark try a meat free day?
Better for the Environment: Meat is a high-energy product using large amounts of oil, land, fresh water and 90% of the crops grown to create meat are wasted in the process. The livestock sector is currently “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global” Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
Better for your Health: Many of the world’s leading health organisations now encourage a reduction in the amount of meat people consume. Oxford University’s department of public health found that eating meat no more than three times a week could prevent 31,000 deaths from heart disease, 9,000 deaths from cancer and 5,000 deaths from stroke, as well as save the NHS £1.2 billion in costs each year.

Dulwich Books is on 6 Croxted Road, West Dulwich,London SE21 8SW, Winner – London’s Independent Bookshop of Year 2012 & 2013
Dave of Dulwich Books says “Despite all the fantastical advances in technology and our ability to access information, you will never be able equal the pleasure of owning a book, opening it for the first time and getting lost in a great story- which is something that simply can not be replicated on a digital screen. It is not just the experience of reading that is vital, it is the process of walking into a shop and finding a book that will change your life, just like buying your favourite record, it will never shape your life in the way it should if you just click ‘download’”
This campaign will make Southwark residents healthier and reduce their impact on the environment.
