This week is the National Week Without Meat here in the Netherlands! From March 8th to March 14th more than twenty thousand Dutch people commit to eating a week without any meat. Why? Because it is a small effort with an enormously positive impact on people, animals and the environment. By not consuming meat during the National Week Without Meat, the environmental impact of your diet is lower. For example, you save on greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change and water use. Any eater of meat who can manage not to eat meat for one week saves a whopping 101 liters of water, 79 kilometers by car and 770 grams of animal meat.
