World Meat Free Week 11-17 June 2018

Posted by mokshini to Buddhist Action on Mon, 11 Jun, 2018 - 07:41

Some of us may be choosing to go vegan for a week - the whole month - or longer; but you might have friends or family who find the idea of giving up meat quite off-putting and unsettling! 

This website allows you to calculate your impact of going meat free for a day or more a week - it also has lots of recipes and might be a helpful way in to give up animal products!

Eat Peas! Thinking About the Ethics of Veganism

Posted by Sadayasihi to Vegan Buddhists and Friends on Fri, 8 Jun, 2018 - 14:16

Here’s some interesting reflections on the ethics of veganism by Dhivan:

“A recent article in the Guardian (that I read via a post about Buddhist Action Month) shares some new research about the environmental effects of meat and dairy farming compared to growing cereals and plants. The results are stark; “even the very lowest impact meat and dairy products still cause much more environmental harm than the least sustainable vegetable and cereal growing”. In short, growing peas has a...

Buddhafield Cafe are recruiting

Buddhafield would like to recruit two people to help run the Buddhafield Café and to be involved with other aspects of the Buddhafield project.

Our ideal candidates would be inspired by the vegan ideal, want to join a community and work within a team based right livelihood business as a context for their Buddhist practice. What we do will be especially attractive to those who have a taste for adventure.

We especially want to increase the representation of women in...

Here is a little extract:

… let’s go vegan for a day, a week or a month!

Sarah Boak who you might know from these pages, or from Southampton Sangha where her home is, or through her work for Buddhafield, has compiled this little booklet to make it that much easier to take the plunge and take steps towards consuming less animal-based products. 

And of course if you want to explore veganism as an action for June at your Buddhist centre or Group, one step might be to go...
