Global “Meat Free” Petition

A group is taking initiative and pushing governments around the globe to make a veg move.

With cities such as Ghent declaring a “meat-free” day per week, a group of online petitioners is taking initiative to make the movement global. Coordinators behind meatfreepetition.com are urging everyone around the globe to sign this online petition. Touting benefits to humans, animals, and the Earth, one meat-free meal per week saves 2.5 lbs of greenhouse gas emissions, 24 square feet of land, and 133 gallons of water, which the petition reminds you of when you sign it. Voting isn’t restricted to the country in which you live; you can vote for a meat-free day in the US, EU, UK, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Indonesia, and Israel. Hop on over to the website and vote away!
