No Meat May 2022 | Bigger Than Ever!

No Meat May was enormous in 2021 — but it’s going to be even bigger in 2022! Last year, more than 65,000 people chose to forgo meat for the month of May. This saved the lives of 135,531 land animals and 1,848,646 sea animals, and saved 39,033 tonnes of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gases and 17.81 billion litres of water. Pretty amazing, right? 

What’s more amazing is that the behavioural changes tend to extend beyond the month of May, with 93% of participants opting to reduce or eliminate meat from their diet entirely! Plus, on average, each registered participant inspired one friend or family member to join them.

4 Big Reasons | #ImproveYourHealth & #SaveThePlanet

Improve Your Health during No Meat May: Did you know that cutting out meat is the number one reason why vegans and vegetarians have a lower risk of developing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, bowel/colon cancer, heart disease, and obesity? Swapping out meat for plants during No Meat May means that you’re consuming more foods that are lower in saturated fat, cholesterol, and carcinogens, and higher in fibre, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. 

Save Our Planet during No Meat May: Did you know that reducing your meat consumption means fewer farmed animals, less greenhouse gas emissions, less deforestation, fewer species going extinct, reduced water use, less pollution, fewer infectious diseases, and less overfishing? It's the single biggest way to reduce your enviro impact and reverse climate change.

4 Big Reasons | #EndFactoryFarming & FeedTheWorld

End Factory Farming during No Meat May: Did you know factory farming is the number one cause of animal cruelty? We like to think of animals living freely on lush green farms, but this image is far from reality. It’s routine for pigs, cows, chickens and fish to be maimed or killed without pain relief. Rampant animal cruelty in factory farms is the number one reason why we’re able to buy cheap meat, eggs and dairy. 

Feed The World during No Meat May: Did you know that to feed 10 billion people by 2050, we will need to double our current food supply? Nearly 10% of all humans are classed as undernourished, but as demand for meat grows — our land, water and other finite sources pay the price. Instead of feeding humans, valuable land is used to grow crops for animal feed.
