Going meatless

Dear Editor,
Going meatless, at least for one day a week, is the “green” thing to do in many countries. Restaurants in Israel are joining together to promote Vegetarian Monday, an initiative to encourage meat-eaters to go vegetarian once a week in order to help combat climate change. Sir Paul McCartney is promoting a similar program in Britain and Australia, and officials in Ghent, Belgium, are urging residents to eat only vegetarian foods on Thursdays.
Here in the U.S., the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health sponsors “Meatless Mondays” to help Americans eat healthier foods that are easier on the environment and animals too. Why not give it a try? According to The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook, not eating meat is the single most effective way to reduce your carbon footprint.
Of course, you don’t have to wait for anyone to officially designate a day—just pick one day a week not to eat meat. When you have that mastered, try two.
