Belguim Have Veggie Day

 

Updated : May 14, 2009

The Belgian city of Ghent is about to become the first in the world to go vegetarian at least once a week.

Starting this week there will be a regular weekly meatless day, in which civil servants and elected councillors will opt for vegetarian meals.

Ghent means to recognise the impact of livestock on the environment.

The UN says livestock is responsible for nearly one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions, hence Ghent's declaration of a weekly "veggie day".

Public officials and politicians will be the first to give up meat for a day.

Schoolchildren will follow suit with their own veggiedag in September.

It is hoped the move will cut Ghent's environmental footprint and help tackle obesity.

Around 90,000 so-called "veggie street maps" are now being printed to help people find the city's vegetarian eateries.

VeryHappyPig loves this idea, but thinks instead of giving up meat for a day just give up pork forever. Think about it, it would have an equally positive affect on the environment and the worlds cutest, pinkest, happiest animals will avoid the slaughter house! VHP thinks if Ireland was to have a veggie day sales of singles and veggie burgers would go through the roof.
