    Petition: Remove Meat from new £5 notes

    Saw this on the BBC:

    change.org/p/b…ink

    Would it not be cheaper to not use Tallow?

    Feel free to sign this petition:

    "Remove Tallow from bank notes

    The new £5 notes contain animal fat in the form of tallow. This is unacceptable to millions of vegans, vegetarians, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and others in the U.K"

    As a pescetarian, I don't care either way.

    I see the vegan point of view and agree that the use of tallow does seem shortsighted and unnecessary, but to be frank I'd rather see a petition to go back to the paper notes. Does anyone like the new ones?

    Maybe start a campaign to use fatties lipo fat instead...there must be loads of that going to waste?

    The fashion is to have the fat put back into their lips!

    Oh my god, how will I sleep at night knowing that some meat produce is in my £5 notes? Well the answer is very well, I really couldn't care less. Should people stop cooking/eating dripping because it comes from a cow? Hell no, If you wanna be a vegan/vegetarian? Then so be it, but don't force your crap on me, just like I don't start crying because you're eating my foods food.

    how is this religiously unacceptable?
    thought Hindus only call cow/beef as holy meat . have they actually specifically said it's cow meat?

    Could not agree with you more.
    Much greater problems in life.

    is this why in some areas its money is refereed to as MOOlar?

    The whole thing is ludicrous, everyone in this country is exposed to meat related particles daily whether they realise it or not. Trace amounts of these products are found in almost everything, and most likely naturally make their way into a lot of things too. Focusing on the £5 note is just stupid imo. There are far more serious things to worry about these days than this.

    Are you allowed to speak to or to employ someone who eats meat as his/her breathe gives out meat smell?

    What the actual F?
