Meat Free Monday

Paul McCartney will always be famous for his music, but nowadays he’s also becoming quite a “rock star” for his promotion of Meat Free Mondays, a simple, effective way to cut carbon emissions and help slow global warming. The name literally says it all; simply abstain from eating any meat on Mondays (or any other day of the week.) It’s that easy.

McCartney came up with the idea back in 2006, when he learned from a UN report that the livestock industry releases more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transport sector. Gross, huh? Shortly thereafter, Meat Free Mondays was born in his native UK where it has slowly gathered momentum around the world, gaining supporters like Gwyneth Paltrow, Sheryl Crow, Chris Martin and Al Gore.
