ghent61One of Europe’s most traditional cities, Ghent in Belgium, announced it will have one veggie day every week from this week. According to the UN, livestock accounts for 20% of all greenhouse emissions. Hence, a reduction in the consumption in of meat means a significant cut in emissions.

This will make the Ghent the first city in the world to go vegetarian once a week. Approximately 90,000 veggie street maps will be created to help people find vegetarian stores and restaurants throughout the city.
