Meatless Mondays in Cleveland

The Cleveland (Ohio) City Council has passed a resolution supporting “Meatless Mondays.” The resolution states, “The City of Cleveland recognizes the benefits of a diet high in fruits and vegetables, and urges residents to participate in Meatless Mondays to improve their health and decrease their carbon footprint.”

Meatless Mondays is strongly supported by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). In a statement after Cleveland’s action, the HSUS said that by taking a weekly holiday from meat, this will “impact residents’ health and the environment, as well as spare animals from factory farms.” Other cities to adopt Meatless Monday resolutions are Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Raleigh-Durham, NC.
