Taking a break from meat helps the animals, the environment...and you
Participating in Meatless Monday, now a popular international movement, is a simple and effective way to help animals, go green, and become healthier.
Countless environmental leaders, public health officials, celebrities, schools and hospitals are taking this small step to yield big results for a better world.
One recent New York Times headline proclaimed, "Meatless Mondays catches on, even with carnivores."
Oprah Winfrey devoted multiple episodes to the trend. Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Mike Tyson, and Martha Stewart have joined in touting the benefits of eating more vegetarian foods.
Standing up for animals, one bite at a time
By making Meatless Monday a part of your weekly routine, we can help to create a more humane society. In fact, if all Americans participated in Meatless Monday, more than a billion animals would be spared from factory farms each year.
