Israel Adopts Meat-Free Mondays

Israel joins the push for vegetarian Mondays.

First it was Ghent, then it was McCartney, and now it’s Israel. The push for one vegetarian day per week is spreading globally, now with Israel calling for meat-free Mondays. In hopes to cut down meat consumption’s environmental damage (as it accounts for 18 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions), Jana and Ilan Gur, co-owners of an Israeli food magazine, think this is a simple way for everyone to help. Stepping things up, Jana and Ilan Gur have asked restaurants to create special vegetarian dishes each Monday. They say every restaurant has been enthusiastic about the menu additions.
