Meatless Mondays in March 2014

From our partner, Alliance for a Greener South Loop 

Will you join us and go meatless on Mondays in March: March 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31?

Why Meatless Mondays in March?

Most people recycle because they know it is good for the environment. But most people don’t know that eating less meat is much more earth-friendly than recycling. Going meatless just one day a week makes a big difference because meat production is both a water- and fossil fuel-intense operation and a major contributor to greenhouse gases – even if it is done organically and locally.

MMM! is not about going vegan (though we have nothing against vegans).

MMM! is about doing something easy that makes a real difference for the environment.

In the past few years many restaurants in the South Loop have participated in the “MMM in the South Loop” initiative. These restaurants all have wonderful meatless meals, why not try them out?
