Love Lambs Week

We want you and thousands of people like you from across the UK to never eat lamb again.

You might be a meat-eater, a flexitarian, or already vegetarian or vegan. Either way, it doesn’t matter! Join a collective of people who want to see an end to the slaughter of young lambs.

And who wouldn’t want to when you see these beautiful, playful animals gambolling in the fields? Why not share this page with a friend who likes seeing lambs in the field – it takes less than two shakes of a lamb’s tail.

The launch of Love Lambs Week is timed to coincide with the meat industry’s ‘Love Lamb Week’, which actively encourages people to eat more lamb. Yes – some people might have you believe that the first week of September is about eating these animals, but don’t have the wool pulled over your eyes! Lambs deserve so much more than this.

And you will no doubt by now have spotted the difference between Love Lamb Week and Love Lambs Week…

It may be a simple letter ‘S’, but its use turns a ‘meat product’ back into the living, intelligent, emotional animal it once was. It’s a matter of life or death for the young animal.

S is for sentiment

S is for sympathy

S is for sentience
