Stella McCartney Offers Some Meatless Monday Inspiration
Stella McCartney, the most famous vegetarian designer out there, is using her twitter account to nudge people to leave meat off their plates.
Inspired by artist Keith Haring, McCartney posted a picture that will certainly make you think about your food.
The message on the Haring piece says, “Everybody knows where meat comes from. It comes from the store.”
The image, splattered in red paint that looks like blood, shows the disconnect people have with their food. Meat is made of animals, but most dare not think about the creatures that had to die to become burgers, chicken fingers and fish sticks. Before they show up at the store, they live their lives, most commonly, on a factory farm where they are subjected to cruelty and neglect.
We bet this Haring piece has turned a few heads and made them think a bit harder about their food choices. Eating meat is a violent business, no matter how you slice it.
