This year we are encouraging everyone to #LiveKinder and tread a little lighter – especially when it comes to our relationship with animals. With a few small changes we can all #LiveKinder - let’s be kinder in what we eat, kinder in what we do and kinder in how we treat animals and the planet. Every little action can have a huge impact, and collectively we have the power to protect animals and the planet. Whilst we all are still living with the fallout of COVID-19 we are becoming increasingly aware of the link between the way we treat animals and the planet, and the subsequent emergence of global pandemics. Over 75% of pandemics have come from animals, including wildlife and farmed animals. The message is clear - we need to change the way we live. Are you prepared to #LiveKinder?
These changes do not need to be big to make a significant impact. Even a few small steps in the right direction can, and will, make a big difference.

Know what you are eating
In many counties huge varieties of animals can be found on the menu. When travelling, locally or abroad, avoid eating at places, including street vendors, that sell dog or cat meat, bush meat, and endangered species, such as certain kinds of fish, shark fins, whale and turtle meat. Animals endure cruel treatment to end up on a plate and there are also risks to your health with diseases, being present in the meat, as a result of improper slaughter practises or hygiene.
Go Green on a Monday
For many people, the idea of eating less or no meat is incomprehensible. The truth is, eating a fantastic meal does not have to involve animal suffering. The Green Monday initiative is all about making a difference one meal at a time! By eating plant-based meals every Monday you will be eating your way to a healthier body, a healthier planet and better welfare for animals.
