Good morning,

on the occasion of the Climate Strike Week (September 20-27), appart from encouraging you to join the global climate strikes, I would also like to challenge you all to a week of vegan diet challenge; a plant-based diet (vegan) is the most eco-friendly option and I challenge you to try it for a week.

The challenge is simple, for a week we avoid: meat, cheese, milk, and animal derivatives such as dairy butter, and we choose: legumes, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and plant derivatives! think of it as a week of environmental cleansing (environmental fasting). Search for Mediterranean and Indian cuisine recipes! they have many choices and the inspiration of cooking with new ingredients is always plenty.

[I could also recommend you the following (30 days vegan pledge) Vegan Society guide, where for a month (you can stop whenever you want), they will send you by email easy vegan recipes and healthy eating tips for free (or through the application mentioned in the link) 😊 To accept the 30 days pledge sign up here: https://www.vegansociety.com/go-vegan/take-vegan-pledge]

If you agree with the idea of ​​environmental action and eco-nutrition, share the message to your friends to accept your challenge for a week!

We need a challenge where we all pledge to spend a week destroying civilization.

i found this very difficult for non activists or anarchists to commit to, like vegan activism and similar ELF/ALF actions, wheather a small lifestyle change is a start for some timid souls
