Support "Hong Kong Meatfree Mondays" to Help curb climate change by having at least one meat free day a week
Did you know, an animal-free diet produces at least 87% less greenhouse gas emissions than the averge meat diet. Does it make sense to subsidize something that simply isn’t sustainable? The following points are in the petitions but basically a veggie diet can: (a) end world hunger due to livestock production’s inefficient use of: water, grain, and soy thus causing water/food shortages - not to mention the inefficiencies in electricity and petroleum usage; (b) prevent: deforestation; soil degradation; oceanic dead zones; air and water pollution; climate change; (c) dramatically reduce health care costs (just go to a hospital and ask who there is a vegetarian - better yet vegan); (d) and the list goes on.
Starting from 23 November 2009. We will have Meat-Out Gatherings every Monday night (approx. times 19:30 to 21:30) at various locations in Hong Kong.
