Time to try a Climatarian Diet?

The Climatarian Challenge

The Climatarian Challenge

Australians are the second biggest meat-eaters in the world, with the average Aussie eating over 90kg of meat every year. And there is a lot of embedded carbon contained in the production of meat.

Our friends at Less Meat Less Heat have produced an App for your mobile phone: the Climatarian Challenge to help you understand the challenge in reducing the amount of meat in your diet to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and particularly meat production.

Just small changes in social behaviour can add up to major demand driven emissions reduction.

You might choose to implement planned behavioural changes such as ‘Meatless Mondays’ or switching from beef or lamb to pork or chicken.

The application will give you a basic understanding of the carbon footprint of each type of meat and dairy. But it leaves which meats and when you choose to eat them up to you, in a monthly carbon budget.

If in Melbourne, you can go to the global launch:

When: 12th of November from 11am to 3pm
Where: Queensbridge Square, Southbank, Melbourne, Australia

This is the current C02 in our atmosphere. We need to get it below 350 for a safe climate.
