We want to help Chorlton people to reduce meat and dairy in their diet to reduce our town’s carbon footprint. Manchester has pledged to become a Zero Carbon city by 2038, cutting out the emissions that cause climate change. You can help by changing how you eat. Even small steps to cut your meat and dairy intake make a difference.
Nearly two-thirds of UK farmland is used to produce meat. It takes over 15,000 litres of water to produce a kilo of beef, while the average for a kilo of veg is just 322 litres.
Eating more fruit, veg and pulses is much more sustainable. It’s better for you, you’ll save money and enjoy exciting and different meals.
