The singer urges people to skip animal products on Mondays
Paul McCartney – a proud vegetarian for the past four decades – has released a booklet to promote his Meat-Free Monday campaign. The movement encourages people to refrain from consuming animal products one day each week to promote a healthier and greener diet.
He stated: “We tend to think that what we have always done is what we always will do in the future. How boring is that? Can’t you look at your life and go, ‘You know what? I think I might fancy a change.'”
And actor Kevin Spacey – who is an avid advocate for animal adoption – has been asked to go vegetarian on numerous occasions and has finally tried the lifestyle.
He explained: “Having one designated meat free day each week is an easy way to help protect the planet. There’s nothing to lose by supporting Meat Free Monday but a great deal to gain.”
Vivienne Westwood, an animal rights activist, then added: “I believe meat has so many toxins in it that your body never really manages to get rid of them. People believe that you have to have protein and bulk to give you energy, but fruit and vegetables are full of health.
Your body processes these efficiently so they do the maximum good for you. You feel so well, light, supple, and full of energy.”
Finally, 70-year-old Joanna Lumley has decided to join in an effort to save lives and improve the planet.
“Just see how easy it will be not to eat meat for one day a week. Just think how the world will benefit from fewer trees being cut to make way for grazing animals. Just imagine how many lives, both animal and human you will help to save: and join the fab Paul McCartney and millions more, including me, in making Monday a Meat Free day,” Joanna shared.
