Meatless Monday becomes official

Meatless Monday becomes official

In Los Angeles, Monday has officially been designated Meatless Monday. The choice remains with the residents. You therefore do not risk a fine if you eat meat.

The Meatless Monday initiative started in 2003 to encourage people not to eat meat at least one day a week.

One day makes a difference
By not eating meat for a day, you lower the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. In addition, it is better for nature. Before the meat is on your plate, it already has a significant impact on the environment.

The city of Los Angeles is leading by example. Maybe Meatless Monday will soon become worldwide. What would you think of that?
