Los Angeles Adopts Meatless Mondays

Meatless Monday, the campaign to get people to reduce their meat consumption, has a new friend. The city of Los Angeles has unanimously approved a resolution this week stating that all future Mondays in the city are to be Meatless Mondays.

According to NBC Los Angeles, LA is the largest city thus far to take part in the campaign. Councilwoman Jan Perry, who helped to introduce the resolution, said about her motives, “Eating less meat can prevent and even reverse some of our nation’s most common illnesses. We’ve become disconnected in some ways from the simple truth that our health is directly affected by the foods we eat.”

We love the reasons the resolution gives for asking people to embrace Meatless Monday. Those reasons include: that livestock is a gigantic contributor to “serious environmental problems”, that a lower carbon footprint can be achieved by reducing the amount of animal products we eat, and that “half of the adult population is overweight or obese in Los Angeles County.”

Check out the resolution for the full details. We hope that the people in Los Angeles embrace Meatless Mondays and that other cities follow their example.
