LUNTIANG LUNES: 'Meatless Mondays' in QC restaurants

Vegetarians (specially vegans, too!) will definitely love this!

The Quezon City government just passed a resolution that urges all restaurants not to serve meat on Mondays to help promote vegetable consumption.

The resolution was already approved by the city's 32-member council which was authored by Councilor Jessica Castelo Daza of District 4.

The move will be called "Luntiang Lunes," a local version of the meatless Monday advocacy in the United States of America to improve the nutritional requirements of the city residents.

Daza noted that there is a need to strengthen food security and minimize environmental problems attributed to livestock production.

If every QC resident would leave out meat for one day every week for one whole year, this would translate to a significant reduction in one’s carbon footprint and would help save precious resources like trees, water and fossil fuel, according to Daza.

“It is like taking 12,800 cars off the road or having 107 million trees planted and grown for 10 years,” she said.
