Guardian newspaper adopts monthly Meat Free Monday
As part of attempts to improve sustainability, the Guardian newspaper is adopting a Meat Free Monday at its London headquarters – albeit only monthly.
Employees got to sample the delights of meat-free dining as part of the organisation’s Sustainability Week earlier this month, alongside other activities to encourage sustainable thinking, including a “make do and mend” fashion workshop, free bike clinics and volunteering opportunities.
Meat Free Monday was the most inclusive and successful event of the week, however, and now looks set to become a regular event at the Guardian building in King’s Cross.
“One event that involved the vast majority of the 1,600 staff was Meat Free Monday, with the restaurant and canteen both becoming veggie zones for the day,” the newspaper reported on its blog recently.
“Staff were not shy in giving feedback, with passionate arguments for and against. However, the broad consensus was favourable, and Meat Free Mondays look set to become a monthly event.”
