On Tuesday, the Washington, DC City Council held a special press conference to announce its newly approved “DC Meat-Free Mondays” ceremonial resolution, encouraging Capitol city dwellers to reduce their meat consumption one day per week. The newly minted program makes Washington, DC the second US city to adopt a Meat-Free Mondays resolution, with San Francisco, Calif., having approved a similar measure last April. The presentation included information on the health benefits of integrating more fruits and vegetables into meals and challenged locals to ditch meat products on Mondays. DC-based animal rights group Compassion Over Killing applauded the City Council’s resolution, calling it a step towards encouraging healthier and compassionate food choices.
