Meat Free Monday

I'm not a huge fan of getting on my eco soap box but every now and then I have to dust it off and have a rant.
Today's rant is inspired by the McCartney clan's lauch of 'Meat Free Monday' which encourages people to have (at least) one meat free day a week to help slow climate change.
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, livestock production is responsible for more climate-changing GHG emissions globally than transportation.
I know meat eaters hate to hear this kind of thing but it's hard to dispute so embrace your inner greenie and chow down on some veggies, grains and pulses today and every monday. It's good for ya too!
Ok that wasn't too ranty right?
