Meat Free Monday

Livestock production is responsible for 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, with some scientists saying the percentage is higher – more than the entire global transport sector combined. Founded by Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney, Meat Free Monday is an environmental campaign to raise awareness of the climate-changing impact of meat production and consumption. Meat Free Monday also provides a wealth of information around the health issues of eating meat, and tasty vegetarian alternatives for otherwise carnivorous diets.
