Everyone Deserves A Day Off

If you haven't seen the new 'Generation Lamb' Australia Day ad yet, I recommend you give it a miss. Personally, I've had about enough of hearing that I'm un-Australian because I choose not to eat animals. Here's the thing - I know what the sting of a blue bottle feels like, I get sunburnt after 20 minutes in the shade and I know all the best ways to stay safe from drop-bears. In short, I reckon I'm just about as ocker as they come. And I'll be celebrating my Australia Day with 100% meat-free deliciousness.

Here's why:

This year you can take a stand for our furry mates by keeping them off your plate. Because if there's one thing that Aussies can't get enough of, it's a day off. And everyone deserves one. Celebrate all that's good about Australia and knock back some veggie tucker this Oz Day. (Click here for some cruelty-free Aussie classics.)

P.S. If there's one more thing that Aussies just can't get enough of ... it's sticking it to the Kiwis. (The fruit, that is wink.) Click on the graphic below to take part in our Facebook campaign to help save our little Aussie mates.

Two things bring us together as Australians - we're all mates and we all love a day off. This Australia Day, YOU can join the campaign to give our animal mates a day off too - a day off the menu! It'd be un-Australian not to...

Shane Warne, the cast of Home and Away, and a Bondi lifeguard. What do they all have in common? They're all Australian and they all love a day off. Every year across this great nation, Australians unite on January 26th to celebrate our shared love of having a day off. (Umm ... that's right, isn't it?) This year you can make a stand for our four legged mates, by keeping them off your plate. On Australia Day ... Everyone Deserves a Day Off.

However you choose to celebrate your day off, fight un-Australianism, and bring a plate of delicious veggie tucker. Going to a barbie? Cook up some true-blue veggie snags. Picnic? What could be more Australian then taking some lamingtons! Beach party? Wrap yourself in an Aussie flag and take some veggie wraps. The options are as wide as this dry, brown land we call home. You could even host a barbie yourself, encouraging friends to bring a cruelty-free plate.

There's heaps of other ways you can get involved but the best way to celebrate all that's good about Australia is to keep meat off the menu.

Being Australian means more than just ending all your words with the letter "O". So this Australia Day, stand up for the underdog (undersheep?), because Everyone Deserves a Day Off!!

If you're over the idea that being Australian means eating animals, then share this campaign far and wide! You know it makes sense. ;)
