Paul McCartney Urges Meat-Free Mondays in the UK

The well-known vegetarian rock star advocates for British schools to adopt Meat-Free Mondays.

Paul McCartney released a video during the Sunday Times Festival of Education in London suggesting that schools in the UK observe Meat-Free Mondays. In his nearly nine-minute video, McCartney explains why a meat-free diet is better for children’s health and the planet. McCartney shares, “I’ve been vegetarian for over 30 years. I see the value of it on a number of levels. If you asked me why I went vegetarian in the first place, it was a compassion thing.” He further shares the moment when he made the connection between animals and food: he was observing sheep play in a field while sitting down to eat a leg of lamb. He stopped eating meat after the incident. Viewers can watch the video on the website, a charity that McCartney co-founded.
