As preparatory meetings for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, or Rio+20, begin this week in Rio de Janeiro, Humane Society International intends to use the international conference on sustainable development to promote "Meatless Monday."
“Whether the focus of Rio+20's participating organizations is farm animal welfare, climate change, forests, public health, environmental pollution, or sustainable agriculture, Meatless Monday supports their mission,” said Guilherme Carvalho, HSI’s campaign manager in Brazil. “It is a movement that everyone can support.”
A popular international movement that began in 2003 in the United States at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, "Meatless Monday" participants cut out meat one day a week for human health and the health of the planet.
