Montgomery County, MD Welcomes Meatless Mondays

The Montgomery County Council officially endorses the campaign, encouraging its residents to reduce their consumption of meat.

Joining the ranks of big cities such as San Francisco and Los Angeles, Montgomery County, MD officials signed a proclamation in support of the Meatless Mondays movement, recognizing the environmental, animal-welfare, and health benefits of abstaining from eating meat at least one day a week. The endorsement came as a result of animal-rights organization Compassion Over Killings’ advocacy work and partnership with the Montgomery County Council on the nationwide initiative to foster healthier and more compassionate eating habits. “Meatless Monday is a terrific way to highlight not only the health benefits of a plant-based diet but the fact that such a diet has been shown to use fewer resources and cause less pollution,” shares county councilmember Valerie Ervin.
