With just days to go until the UN Climate Summit in New York, Paul McCartney has called on people to back the Meat Free Monday Climate Pledge campaign.  As well as being responsible for a huge chunk of global greenhouse gas emissions, meat production requires increasingly unsustainable levels of precious resources – land, water and energy – and is a major contributor towards global environmental degradation.

#MFMclimatepledge aims to get people to commit to a weekly meat free day so that global leaders can see the magnitude of support and enable them to take the idea forward.  Please take a couple of minutes to visit http://pledge.meatfreemondays.com, pledge to go meat free for one day a week and share the idea with others.
