Meatless Mondays 2010


Published on

A life of compassion can simply begin with three meals.

We have already changed our light bulbs to energy saving models. We try our best to recycle. We try to eliminate our carbon footprint by carpooling and staying away from gas guzzlers. But until we watched the movie "Food Inc", most of us didn't know that our food choices had such dire consequences to our environment. It made us sad but we didn't stop there. We took action.

This beautiful group of people dedicated a lot of time promoting Meatless Mondays in their families and among their friends. When we share a common virtuous source of motivation and actively promote it in our community, a real sense of appreciation for humanity, compassion, and love develops. We hope you will join us too.
