weeks after the country launched Meatless Mondays, a campaign
encouraging at least one meat-free meal a week, Sydney’s famed Bondi
Beach was the site of the country’s biggest vegetarian barbecue for the
recent celebration of Australia Day.
Sponsored by Fry’s
Vegetarian brand and hosted by spokesperson and Australian comedian
Simon Kennovich, the veg event raised funds for the Bondi Surf Life
Saving Club while advocating a healthy, environmentally friendly
Supreme Master Television’s correspondent reports.
Australian Correspondent (F):
We’re here on Australia’s famous Bondi Beach at Australia’s biggest
vegetarian barbeque where Simon Kennovich is telling Australians not to
eat lamb on Australia Day but to instead try a Fry’s burger and to try
being veg for the planet and for our beautiful Australia.
Simon Kennovich – Comedian (M):
Hallo everyone, people of the world. Come to Australia. Get down here,
have a vegetarian barbeque with us. We’ll all have a good time.
Served fresh off the grill were vegan alternatives to the meat often
eaten on holidays, with a crowd of people showing their interest in
Attendee/Citizen (M): It’s good.
Attendee (M): Mouth-watering, really.
VOICE: The barbeque also raised awareness on vital veg benefits for one’s health and the planet.
That’s obviously helping with the cutting down of methane gases that
are produced by animals. And also just having a different protein
source, it’s a great way of benefiting your diet.
Anyone that loves this planet and loves the blue sky and the conditions
we have at the moment really should get behind a vegetarian diet for
the planet. If we get enough people behind this, we could change this
global warming phenomenon.
VOICE: Many thanks, Fry’s Vegetarian,
Simon Kennovich and Bondi Beach for your celebration and support of the
Earth-protecting plant-based diet. May the compassionate lifestyle soon
be adopted by all countries for a vibrantly sustainable world.
