“What a marvellous initiative Meat Free Monday is; A great start to the week for you, the animals and the environment. It’s a veggie burger no-brainer!”

“As an Italian, I grew up with a very mixed diet and I never ate meat every day. My mum would cook lots of pasta, bread, pulses, fish, vegetables and served a lot of ‘recycled delicacies’ with leftovers from previous meals. Today we are made to believe that it is all right to eat meat or fish every day, when in fact it is not – from a well-being point of view, and from an environmental point of view.”
“The solution to tackling global warming is simple: reduce our dependence on livestock, and we will reduce our impact on the environment at a faster rate than anything else we do. It is incredible to know that the same food choices which could eliminate world hunger are also those that take the least toll on the environment. Louis Hotels is therefore proud to support the initiative to reduce consumption of meat, called Meat Free Monday.” – Savvas Perdios

“Changes in lifestyle and behaviour patterns can contribute to climate-change mitigation across all sectors. Individuals can make a difference in this regard is by altering their diets through consuming less meat – say by giving up meat at least one day a week. Reducing meat consumption in this manner will make individuals healthier, as well as the planet.”
“Meat Free Monday is not only a fine cause, but it makes great business sense for us, attracting a new and loyal crowd on Mondays and giving us all a break from meat one day a week. And when it’s this well cooked, you really don’t miss the meat.” – Gareth Kavanagh
Gareth Kavanagh is the director/owner of the award-winning Lass O’Gowrie pub in Manchester. With a local vegan chef stepping in and taking over the kitchen on Monday evenings serving only meat free vegan food, Mondays at The Lass are distinct, interesting and extremely tasty!
“tibits has been working closely with Meat Free Monday for a while, to support the important work they do in trying to reduce meat consumption around the world. Eating less meat is of course a vital way to help prevent the cruelty to and suffering of animals and benefits the environment: livestock production could be responsible for as much as 51% of global greenhouse gas emissions.” – Reto Frei
Reto Frei is the Co-Founder and CEO of tibits vegetarian restaurants, London. tibits endorses the MFM campaign and their menu includes a range of delicious hot dishes, salads, soups, desserts and smoothies, all of which are healthy yet satisfying.
“Ever since I made the connection between how the foods we prepare affect our health, it has been my personal mission to share with anyone that would listen that we can take control our health, starting in the kitchen. Foundational plant-based culinary education is a key element in taking a personal stance for health personally, for the planet and of course the animals.”
