Meatless Mondays: How One Day Without Meat Can Help Create a Better World - Infographic

Do you ever wonder why Monday was chosen as the day to celebrate Meatless Mondays?

It’s probably quite simple.

It’s quite likely that the folks behind Meatless Monday campaign felt that as the start

of the week, Monday holds a unique opportunity for us.

It’s a new beginning.

A fresh start.

Monday is the perfect time to take a look at the past week, think about the behaviors

we’d like to improve upon and reset our routine.

In fact, research has shown that Monday is the day we are most likely to start new

and lasting healthy habits.

So, that’s the idea behind Meatless Monday:

“Start each week

with healthy intentions

and you’re more likely

to stick with them.”


And if you fall off the wagon one week, you always have another chance to go meatless

next Monday!

Why go meatless, you ask?

There are many important health and environmental benefits associated with reducing

meat consumption.
