Are you ready to take our Ramadan (and beyond) REDUCE – REUSE – RENEW challenge?
First up (it’s a big one) – REDUCE YOUR MEAT CONSUMPTION!
Not only is it good for you but it is also necessary to protect our planet. By cutting down your meat consumption this Ramadan (and beyond) you can help tackle these issues, to name just a few :
– Reduce greenhouse gases
– Improve animal welfare
– Save the Amazon rainforest from destruction (massive cattle is responsible for 75% of deforested areas in the Amazon)
– Reduce world hunger (80% of global soy production is used as livestock feed)
As if that wasn’t enough, we should also think about the way we’re treating animals before they are slaughtered. We should question if this is really in accordance with the guidance of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and if so is the meat we’re currently eating REALLY halal?
You might want to consider Organic Halal Meat as a more ethical option. Here are a list of UK Organic Halal Meat suppliers :
