Animal Aid’s Meat Free Month
March is Animal Aid's Meat-Free Month – the perfect time to take positive action and try some of the many meatless food products available in high street shops and supermarkets. And it needn't be expensive, especially with the help of Animal Aid's new FREE recipe booklet – Meat-Free! Feed four for under a fiver. The booklet offers easy-to-make, tasty, nutritious, family sized, meat-free meals for less than five pounds. As well as keeping costs down, the meat-free diet can help individuals live longer and healthier lives, reduce your carbon footprint and, of course, help to end animal suffering.
