As part of the Climate Pledge Campaign, Mark, model Lily Cole, and MP for Bexhill & Battle/Former Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change Greg Barker attendrf Mark Ruffalo Takes The Meat Free Pledge at Ritz Carlton Hotel in New York City. Mark has tweeted a few days ago about the Meat Free Mondays, an initiative launched this month. According to the website, 14.5% of global carbon emissions are directly related to meat production. It’s the campaign’s hope that going vegetarian for at least one day a week will combat climate change in a major way. It will hopefully also act as a first step, paving the way for people to eat even less meat, or adopt a total vegetarian or vegan diet.
As a vegetarian myself, I highly approve it! Also, watch here the campaign video Sir Paul McCartney has made.
