You’ve heard of Meatless Mondays, a campaign encouraging people to eat vegetarian just one day a week.

Will we soon see a movement promoting less dairy and eggs, called Vegan Thursdays?

Leona Lewis told Modern Dog magazine that she eats vegan one day a week, in addition to being a vegetarian the other six days.

“I am a vegetarian. I don’t eat meat or any fish, and I do try to be a vegan at least once a week where I don’t drink milk or eat cheese or eggs. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was twelve.”

The dairy industry isn’t without environmental impact.

Research on Ireland farms found it takes 3.59 to 6.7kWh per cow each week for milking, with a large part of electricity use going towards cooling milk and heating water.

There are humane arguments to using less dairy, such as the conditions female cows in factory farms must endure when they are unable to move and forced to produce unnatural amounts of milk during their lifetime.

Will your next step in going green be to cut dairy during the week?
