Meat Free Week: Are you up for the challenge?
We believe that in life it’s important to shake things up from time to time and push the boundaries, which is why we’re very excited about an upcoming event called Meat Free Week. The idea behind it is to go without eating meat for a week, while at the same time raising money for some very worthwhile causes. Meat Free Week aims to raise awareness about how much meat Australians eat (3 times the world average and double the amount recommended by the Australian Dietary Guidelines) and the impact eating [...]

Tempting tofu
If you’re anything like me you find tofu scary. It’s not because I don’t like to eat it, because I do, it’s just that despite being a vegetarian for over 25 years, I still haven’t mastered the art of cooking it properly.

So, in an effort to overcome my fear, I decided to go in search of some recipes featuring tofu and trial them, [...]

Factory farming is making us sick
As some of you may already know from our recent Facebook post, www.consumewithcare.org is incredibly fortunate and grateful to be the recipient of a grant from the animal protection organisation Voiceless. We will be using the money to spread our message of conscious consumption to the wider community, so we’re looking forward to a very busy and successful 2014. At the Voiceless awards ceremony, attendees were given a copy of a book called ‘Unsustainable Cruelty’ by the Australian PhotoJournalist (supported by Voiceless), which contains a collection of photos and [...]
