Why keep a meat free Monday?

 

Environment

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) meat production is contributing significantly to the most serious environmental problems – both on a local and global scale. FAO estimates that meat production is responsible for 14.5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions while other organizations estimate that it may be as much as 51 percent. Climate scientists agree that we must reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by 2050 by 80 percent to avoid catastrophic climate changes. 

Health

Many world leading health organizations urge to reduce human meat consumption. It is recommended by organizations to buy mostly plant foods, limit red meat and avoid processed meat.

Simply Cooking A/S

Our intention with the meat free mondays is to create awareness about a vegetarian diet being both tasty, healthy and filling. And in addition, it has a positive contribution to the environmental accounts. We will continue to focus more and more on sustainable cooking by being selective on the foods we order for our canteens. And in additon to this make sure that most of the ingredients we use are organic. We also wants to grow our own vegetables in the nearest future by implementing a garden in one of the CIS greenhouses. You can’t get it more local than this!
