UK Soccer Stadium Bans Sale Of Meat During Games
For a lot of people, part of the fun of going to a sporting event is the food. For me, I love getting soft pretzels (I mean, come on, they’re fantastic!), but for some that means hot dogs and burgers.
As some of you may already know, meat is harder for our bodies to digest, not to mention that it’s just plain cruel to animals. This seems to be the logic behind a recent move by a UK soccer team that banned the sale of burgers, sausages and meat pies at their stadium.
The Forest Green Rovers previously banned their soccer players and staff from consuming meat products, but now they’re extending it to their fans. Dale Vince, who is the owner of the team and a green electricity supplier company called ‘Ecotricity,’ said, “If red meat was not good enough to feed our players, then it wasn’t good enough for our staff, fans and visitors too.”
What a smart move!
