It’s the Week Zonder Vlees! Tens of thousands of conscious Dutchies are celebrating this yearly national campaign called ‘Meatless Week’. But… WHY?
While the supermarkets here are basically giving out meat and cheese successors for free and everyone’s freezers are loaded with their favourite vegan goods, we can’t let this happy week go by unnoticed either!
But first: what’s the actual gain of participating in this meatless week?
On a vegetarian diet, you’d save in an average week:
🐮 3,5 animal lives
💧 2.914,8 liters of water
🌾 37,8 kg of grain
🌍 4,2 m² of forested land
💨 12,6 kg CO2
By going vegan however, in an average week you’d even save:
🐮 7 animal lives
💧 29.148 liters of water
🌾 126 kg of grain
🌍 21 m² of forested land
💨 63 kg CO2
Imagine those numbers adding up over a year! Gotten curious? Check out the positive impact you could have every day using this handy vegan calculator.
In honour of #WeekZonderVlees, Sonja and I selected a couple of our favourite vegan statement tees. What do you think? 💚
