From 5 until 11 March it's Meatfree Week in the Netherlands! In the UG restaurants you will see a difference in the menu, as you’ll find more vegetarian and vegan meals on offer.
Why should we all eat meat-free for a week? By choosing to forego meat for one week a healthy adult saves the same amount of water as 7 months worth of showers, driving a car for 114 kilometers, and 7 months of absorbing CO2 for a tree. Not to mention you save animal lives! More about the hidden cost of meat you can find here (website in Dutch).
Of course you can choose veggie meals in our restaurants, but if you want to do more, consider cooking a great vegetarian dish for dinner. Here you can find has some recipes to inspire you!
