A short animation encouraging us to eat vegetarian once a week...
...Which is good, but not enough, why do I say that? We usually eat 3 times a day, assuming we live up to 80 years - that would mean 87658 meals in our lifetime.
If you eat vegetarian meal(s)(starting from age 20 and you live up to 80)...
Once a month = 720 vegetarian meals in your lifetime (<1%)
Once every fornight = 1565 vegetarian meals in your lifetime (1.7%)
Once a week = 3130 vegetarian meals in your lifetime (3.5%)
Thrice a week = 9391 vegetarian meals in your lifetime (11%)
Once a day = 21914 vegetarian meals in your lifetime (30%)
Twice a day = 43829 vegetarian meals in your lifetime (50%)
Every meal = 65743 vegetarian meals in your lifetime (75%)
If you look at the figures, it is no big deal if you eat vegetarian on the 1st and 15th of the lunar month or once a week since it only accounts for 1.7% or 3.5% of your total meals in your lifetime. That doesn't mean you shouldn't do it, like what Gandhi said, "Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it". We are but one person, a drop of ink a bucket of water, and can't have a lot of impact from what we eat. But when many people come together and play their part, the many drops of ink will change the colour of the water. You can try and increase the number of vegetarian meals to hit twice, then thrice, five times a week, once a day and so on, making your small drop ink more concentrated.
