Kick Off Climate Week NYC with Meatless Monday

September 16th, 2019

Climate Week NYC, (led by The Climate Group) takes place this year from September 23-29. The summit is held alongside the UN General Assembly and brings together international leaders from business, government and civil society to showcase global climate action and to discuss solutions. While complex issues are being discussed, there is a simple action we can all take to have a big impact: participate in Eat for Climate Week.

Eat for Climate Week seeks to raise awareness of the climate benefits of shifting to a more plant-based diet, as well as highlighting how delicious plant-based foods are. Start the week off with Meatless Monday on September 23rd and keep your climate-friendly eating going all week long.

If you happen to be in NYC during Climate Week you can attend summit events and show your support for Eating for Climate Week by eating at one of the participating restaurants showcasing delicious and climate-friendly dishes. This week-long restaurant campaign is in partnership with Meatless Monday and the Food and Climate Alliance.

Another great option for Meatless Monday on September 23 during Climate Week NYC is to stop by Cinnamon Snail’s food truck and try their delicious and FREE plant-based samples made with plant-based Gardein products.  Cinnamon Snail vegan food truck will be serving up FREE gardein plant-based dishes, including Morita Chili Grilled “Beefless” Breakfast Burritos and Habanero Buffalo Chick’n Sliders. In NYC? Join us on Monday, Sept 23rd from 10am-2pm on Fifth Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets in Manhattan. Follow @MeatlessMonday, @gardein and @CinnamonSnail for more details.

Can’t make it to New York? Don’t worry, you can still support the event and fight climate change by going Meatless Monday at home or in your office. If you don’t already observe Meatless Monday, what better week to start? If you already go meet-free once a week, then how about going meatless for all of climate week?

Meatless Monday is a global movement, followed by millions, with a simple message: one day a week, cut out meat for personal health and the health of the planet. To find out more, follow us on FacebookTwitterPinterest, or Instagram.
