'The best thing anyone can do for the environment is to reduce meat consumption...'
Children’s TV series Blue Peter is encouraging viewers to go meat-free to fight the climate crisis.
The show has launched a new initiative called Climate Heroes, which challenges participants to take on eco-friendly tasks.
There are three separate pledges, which includes requests. such as ‘Sort the rubbish recycling at home carefully’ and ‘Save water by turning off the taps when you brush your teeth. Using less water gives plants and trees more to drink’.
If children stick to the pledges for at least two weeks, they can apply for a green version of the iconic Blue Peter badge.
