The Wombles are joining forces with us today, as part of the #OneStepGreener campaign for COP26 to encourage everyone to eat less meat for the sake of the environment. The characters, who have been championing positive environmental behaviour for over 50 years, are supporting the campaign with the creation of two family-friendly plant-based recipes to coincide with COP26. Each of the recipes is presented in a short, animated film featuring one of the famous Wombles characters – Madame Cholet’s Chilli Non Carne and Tobermory’s Corn and Courgette Fritters. The song featured in the recipe films was composed by Paul McCartney, especially for Meat Free Monday.
The Wombles will be at the heart of the nation’s environmental actions during the United Nations climate change conference (COP26). They are supporting the UK government’s Together for Our Planet campaign to encourage all of us to go #OneStepGreener for the planet.
The Meat Free Monday partnership is the latest in a series of initiatives by The Wombles to encourage environmentally-friendly actions. The characters have already featured in animated films explaining how we can all go #OneStepGreener by travelling smarter, reusing and upcycling, planting trees, growing and eating food in season and creating wildlife friendly gardens.
Speaking on behalf of The Wombles, Great Uncle Bulgaria said, “We love the Meat Free Monday campaign. Reducing the amount of meat we eat is good for the planet, good for animals and good for our health. We hope that the super tasty recipes created by Madame Cholet and Tobermory will encourage everyone to go meat free for at least one day a week.“
