I'm a freelance writer living in Perth.
I enjoy gardening and films. I have appeared in several local short films.
Are you up for the challenge?
Meat Free Week is an opportunity for all of us to challenge ourselves to eat less meat and be healthier.
T shirt annoucing the message
Going for one week without meat will hopefully get you thinking about eating smaller portions of meat and how we can care more about animals and the environment.
Also you can feel good by raising money for a great cause. You can get your family and friends to sponsor you for every day you go without meat and assist Bowel Cancer Australia or Voiceless, the animal protection institute.
The idea came from Lainie Bracher and Melissa Dixon who were concerned about the treatment of animals and wanted to take action. They wanted a campaign where people started talking about meat consumption and production.
