Make a Veg Pledge
One of the simplest and most effective things we can do is switch to a more plant-based diet.
Could you make a ‘veg pledge’ to eat plant based food for a day? a week? a month? a year?
Get inspired: The Food for Thought booklet has ideas for tasty plant-based recipes.
Cook from scratch where you can: it gives you control over where your ingredients come from.
Buy local and seasonal: check out independent shops and markets.
Cut down waste food and plastic packaging: plan meals and buy small amounts regularly.
Support sustainable farming practices such as organic or fairtrade.
Make your pledge go further by writing to your local councillor, to ask what your council is doing to strengthen local food production and supply chains of plant based foods. Let them know you are doing your bit, and want the council to do theirs.
