2 Cut out cruelty
What's wrong with meat?

Sadly, modern day farming looks nothing like the farmyards in children's books. Every year, billions of animals live in extreme confinement in factory farms. They suffer painful surgeries without any pain relief, such as having their tails, teeth and beaks cut. And in their last moments they experience the fear and stress of the slaughterhouse.

Forgive yourself if you make a mistake

Eating meat-free is not about being perfect — it's about making a difference for animals, the environment and your health. Be proud of every kind choice you make and don't be disheartened if you slip up.
