Meatless Mondays Returns
May 15 @ 8:00 am - May 22 @ 5:00 pm
As a joint venture, the Library and the Village of Kinderhook Climate Smart Task Force will kick off a Meatless Monday campaign in May. Meatless Monday is a health initiative which encourages people to go meatless one day a week for their own health and the health of the planet. Last year, 77 people signed up for this local campaign and saved the equivalent of 1.3 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions in a matter of a few months. That equals the emissions produced by a car driving 3.224 miles! Can we exceed these numbers in 2021?
Meatless Mondays will be very informal – no membership forms, no dues, no meetings. Just commit to eat no meat one day a week, not necessarily just Mondays. The Library has a great collection of vegetarian cookbooks you can borrow. Sign up below, and visit www.meatlessmonday.com for more information. One lucky registrant will win a gift card to Samascott’s just for joining our virtual challenge!
