Monday in San Francisco is officially the meat-free day of the week.



The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved legislation Tuesday declaring the first day of the week meat-free Mondays, now known as Vegetarian Day or Veg Day.



With this resolution, San Francisco can join the growing list of communities that have taken action to encourage citizens to choose vegetarian foods as a way to protect the planet and their health, said Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, a vegetarian for 40 years who introduced the resolution.

Umm... so what? So the government officially acknowledges that eating meat free is a good thing? And... ? How exactly does this impact anything or anyone? Admittedly, just getting a government organization to admit that much is a step, but if they're not planning to do anything with that information, then what exactly is the point?

Don't people feel the need to drink milk to get calcium cause the government says dairy is good for calcium?

Don't people feel that they need to eat meat for protein, becuase the government says meat is a good source of protein?

Don't you think if the government starts promoting a meat free diet that some people will believe it's a good thing? It worked for dairy and meat... this is a step in the right direction.

This is wonderful news!
