Also, it tries to convince people to have different perspectives about waste issues in collaboration with government agencies.

    We produce a lot of waste while eating and drinking every day. If we do not use disposable products, we can substantially reduce the volume of waste.

    MeatFreeMonday will help beginners with different needs such as thosewho are interested in vegetarian diet but have no idea where to start, who don’t know which level of vegetarian diet fits them, or who want to know which vegetarian diet can replace meat eating so that they can take one more step to the world of vegetarian diet.

    Over the last decades where rapid industrialization took place, nobody askedwhat to do with the soaring volume of wasteresulted from enhanced convenience of customers.
    Now is time to talk about everything that is made and disposed of only to make goods look more luxurious or fit brand image. We suggest we break the prolonged link which remained unaddressed due toexcessive production of businesses, inaction of governments and silent consent of consumers.
    We made a large dairy producer and food manufacturer hear the voice of consumers by returning straws stuck to their drink productsin February and plastic lids of their canned ham products in September 2020. Also, we come up with measures by communicating with businesses based on consumer’s voices.
