Meatless Mondays School Kit

Meatless Mondays School Kit

Meatless Mondays are a fun and easy way for green-conscious schools to reduce their carbon and water footprint, encourage healthy eating, and empower students to make informed food choices. This kit contains colourful and well laid out resources to help you launch a Meatless Mondays initiative in your school. KIT CONTAINS: poster, information sheet, 2-part activity sheets Canteen tips available on the ThinkKind website, search ‘Meatless Mondays’. Did you know it takes 2,393 litres of water to make just one hamburger, and 15,415 litres to make one steak? Animal agriculture requires a huge amount of land, food, energy, and water. The WorldWatch Institute estimates that a staggering 51 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture, and the United Nations has also urged everyone to eat less meat to combat global warming. For green conscious schools who invest a lot of time and effort into teaching students to use less electricity, walk to school instead of driving, and take shorter showers (all great initiatives), this information may come as a surprise. The impact that raising livestock has on the environment is not as widely known as other factors, such as transportation and burning fossil fuels. If your school is serious about treading lightly on the planet, teaching students about the importance of eating less meat is vital.
