Humane Society International’s supporters have been increasingly voicing their concerns about farm animal welfare and the impact of animal agriculture on the environment – and we have heard you.
HSI is very excited to announce that we are launching a program aimed at encouraging our supporters and the broader community who have an interest in reducing their meat consumption to try going meat-free just one day a week!
To help you make the shift we will be posting weekly recipes and helpful blogs discussing the benefits of reducing your meat intake and tackling some of the trickier aspects of adopting a meat-free diet.
As a community we have the opportunity to make a positive difference for our planet, and HSI’s goal is to make it easy, delicious, and rewarding to do your bit for the environment by reducing meat consumption. By cutting out meat just one day a week you can drastically reduce your carbon footprint and reduce demand for factory farmed produce – not to mention try some incredible new recipes!
Our very first recipe is Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas from Minimalist Baker – filling and flavourful and totally delicious! Click here for the full recipe!
Make sure to comment and let us know if you tried the recipe!
