The winners have been announced for the 33rd annual Telly Awards, and an informational video from Humane Society of the United States has received honors for its promotion of Meatless Mondays. The three-and-a-half minute commercial outlines the “who, what, how, and why” of Meatless Mondays, from its origins and purpose to suggested means of preparing vegetarian meals. Reasons cited for choosing to ditch meat for one day a week include personal health, the detrimental effects of animal agriculture on the environment, and the ability to save more than 1 billion animals annually (if every American were to adopt the tradition). The Telly Awards select the best online content, television commercials, and film productions from more than 11,000 entries each year.
