There are many NGOs
campaigning in this area:
Plate to Planet
Platetoplanet.org, a Farm Sanctuary project, provides a wealth of information about how factory farming pollutes our air and water, contributes to global warming, produces excess waste, destroys land, wastes water and is a resource-intensive, inefficient means of feeding the world’s population. The informative site also features a short film, "What to Eat" voiced by actor Jason Schwartzman, interviews with experts from the Sierra Club, Worldwatch Institute, Food & Water Watch, Brighter Green, and Farm Sanctuary; a how-to guide for making plant-based food choices; and the opportunity for visitors to help protect the planet by pledging to go meat free for a day, a month or a lifetime.
T Colin Campbell Foundation
TCCF offers the best scientific and health information available to the public, without influence from industry or commercial interests.
Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative of The Monday Campaigns, in association with the Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health. They provide the information and recipes you need to start each week with healthy, environmentally friendly meat-free alternatives. Their goal is to help you reduce your meat consumption by 15% in order to improve your personal health and the health of the planet.
Plan B, Earth Policy Institute
Earth Policy Institute founder Lester Brown wrote a book called Plan B 4.0: Mobilising to save civilisation, a detailed guideline on how to build a new sustainable economic model to avert two growing catastrophes; our soaring population and rapidly changing climate. He offers solutions through renewable energy, recyclable consumer goods and environmental preservation to ensure food security, education and good health for all. In this Plan B vision for society, Lester advocates the positive impact of a plant-based diet “Although we seldom consider the climate effect of various dietary options, they are substantial, to say the least. … A plant-based diet requires roughly one fourth as much energy as a diet rich in red meat. Shifting from the latter to a plant-based diet cuts greenhouse gas emissions almost as much as shifting from a Suburban to a Prius [car] would.”
The Plan B movement is at work in community and class lectures, in policy talks, with an international following via the internet. PLANEAT encourages you take up the Plan B banner and take action to PLAN ahead for a safe future.

A Well-Fed World
A Well-Fed World is a food justice, health and hunger alleviation advocacy organization working with individuals, public interest groups and policymakers to mend our food system. Founder and director of the campaign, Dawn Moncrieff, represented AWFW at UN Climate Talks (COP16) to pressure policymakers on the burden our love of meat is having on the environment.
WWF are working with and influencing key players in the UK food industry – including retailers, producers, food processors, governments and charities – to transform the way UK food is supplied.
Meat Free Monday
Meat Free Monday is an environmental campaign to raise awareness of the climate-changing impact of meat production and consumption. Many people are unaware that livestock production is responsible for 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions – that’s more than the entire transport sector.
