Meat Free Mondays in October

28 05 2009

People all around the world are pledging to eat meat free on Mondays.  It’s better for your health and the environment. Don’t just take our word for it, though. We’ve compiled a few facts to whet your appetite, but there’s much more data and evidence that going meat free one day a week really is a good idea.  

Visit our resources section for more books, articles, and reports. We’ve also posted links to videos, podcasts, and websites with additional information.  Visit the Meatless Monday website that Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is promoting and check out how Paul McCartney is promoting Meat Free Mondays around the World.

If you’re ready to put Bellingham on the map as a Meat Free Monday community who’s pledging to reduce their carbon footprint, take the pledge here.

Nifty idea. By the way, the expression is “whet your appetite” not “wet your appetite.”

Hey, I like the idea of not eating meat on Mondays. I like the idea more of knowing where your meat comes from. We are so lucky in this region to have Skagit River Ranch and Samish Bay Cheese producing local, organic beef. Why not eat local. Make a choice to eat less meat, but better quality. I think its more about purchasing direct and creating sustainability than about substaining from a certain foodgroup entirely.
