Meatless North Carolina

North Carolina’s Research Triangle area has launched a Meatless Monday initiative.

The Triangle Meatless Monday (TMM) initiative is trying to get residents of Durham, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to go veg one day per week. The initiative, which was launched in late April, is teaming up with local restaurants to offer a vegan dish every Monday; in return, TMM promotes the businesses to the community. Just this week, the Durham Board of County Commissioners proclaimed it a “Meatless Monday” city. “I think that harnessing a national initiative by using your local power is a great way for folks to take steps into meatless meals,” says TMM organizer Eleni Vlachos.
