We at Meatless Monday have long touted the health and environmental benefits of skipping meat one day a week in favor of fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains. The reasons to make this simple switch continue to grow: just this week new studies have linked 2.8 million cases of cancer to poor living habits, found that a plant-focused diet can reduce the risk of certain forms of breast cancer, and shown that reducing your meat consumption has a bigger environmental impact than going organic. Given this steady stream of information, it’s time to share Meatless Mondays with our friends, family, classmates and coworkers.
The new Meatless Monday video is an easy way to bring the movement to your network! At just over a minute long, it’s the perfect primer on the benefits and reasons to cut back. Watch it here and then spread the word via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter or on your blog.
