Belgian City does "Meatless Thursday"

What a rad idea! An entire city sponsoring a meatless day every week to minimize the environmental and health-concerned impact of meat consumption.

I was recently in Ghent, it is a charming city. Cheers to them, I hope it catches on!


  1. I heard about this, too - it's super-cool, isn't it? Now, if only we could get the entire U.S. of A. to partake! That would be awesome...

    PS I'm partial to Belgium, too - I've only been to Brussels and Antwerp, but I loved them both :)

  2. I think this is such a wonderful idea!! For the environmental impact and the eye-opening experience of the peeps involved. It seems to me (and makes me sad) that most non-veg households are so fond of their meaty diets and dont care to understand the impact of their meat and the delicious world of vegetables. I think there needs to be an international "meatless thursday" !!! :)
