Meat Free Mondays

Meat Free Mondays is an initiative actively encouraging Australians to go meat-free for one day a week – for the good of our health and the good of the planet.

It’s a fun and easy way to encourage a reduction in meat consumption, without asking people to give up meat entirely.

Rather than urging Australians to become vegetarian or vegan, it’s all about promoting choice and shining a light on the positive impacts of that choice.

By building up a culture of people that don’t eat meat on a Monday, the hope is that people will support each other to reduce meat consumption once a week, without having to make a considerable sacrifice.

Why Go Meat-Free On Mondays?

There's no denying, here in Australia, we love our meat. As one of the world’s largest meat export and meat consuming nations, it has long dominated our dinner plates, and become a fixture of our cultural identity.

The issue is, our love of meat has begun to take a toll on both our health and the health of our planet.

Both nutritional and environmental experts maintain that by eating more plant-based foods and making simple reductions in our meat consumption, we can strike a healthier balance.

We thought you'd never ask. And we’ve basically got you covered for every Monday of the year.

Does Meat Free Monday Mean I Should Give Up Meat?

No. Making any shift from a meat-based diet to a vegetarian or vegan one is a significant change. The scale of that decision immediately scares people off. 

The thinking behind Meat Free Mondays is to encourage a reduction in your meat consumption without asking you to give up meat altogether.

There are many nutritional reasons to eat more vegetables, plant-based foods, and of course, eggs.
