Paul McCartney Asks You To Participate In Meat-Free Mondays

Once an activist, always an activist! Paul McCartney is challenging Britons to participate in “meat-free Mondays” to help cut carbon emissions throughout the world. Paul claims to have gotten the idea from Australians who appear to be perhaps a little more aware (or willing to admit) the impact of cattle rearing and meat production on the environment.

Paul recently told trade magazine, The Grocer, “A lot of people go to the gym on a Monday. With meat-free Mondays, it’s a bit like going to the gym but with the added advantage of protecting the planet.” Paul also credits a report released by the UN for helping inspire the challenge. He said, “One of the most significant conclusions of the recent report on climate change was that we should eat less meat. This is not the Vegetarian Society that said that. It’s the UN.”

McCartney has been a long-time vegetarian and worked with PETA and various other animal-rights organizations to help promote the lifestyle, so this challenge comes as no surprise to all of us here at Ecorazzi. Will you be participating in meat-free Mondays? Comment back and tell us what you think.
