Bowie Proclamation: Make Mondays Meat-free
The HSUS praises city for encouraging residents to eat more meatless meals
The city of Bowie passed a proclamation urging residents to participate in Meatless Mondays as a way to improve their health and environmental sustainability. Bowie is the latest city government to support the international Meatless Monday movement. The Humane Society of the United States applauds Bowie for encouraging its residents to take a weekly holiday from meat, which—aside from promoting healthier foods—will leave less of an environmental footprint, as well as spare animals from factory farms.
Bowie now joins other cities and counties across the U.S. including the District of Columbia; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Montgomery County, Maryland and Durham County, North Carolina that have passed similar resolutions.
The HSUS advocates compassionate eating – or the Three Rs: “reducing” or “replacing” consumption of animal products and “refining” our diets by switching to products from sources that adhere to higher animal welfare standards.
