BARCELONE SE DECLARE VEGGIE FRIENDLY

SOURCE ET SUITE


The move includes writing a vegetarian guide to the city and encouraging residents to give up meat at least one day a week.
Spain is renowned for its meat and vegetarians often find it a challenge to find meat-free dishes across much of the jamón-loving country, but not for much longer if one of its main cities has anything to do with it.
Barcelona on Tuesday declared itself "veg-friendly, friend of vegan and vegetarian culture" after one of the city's left-wing parties brought the proposal to City Hall. 
The title "veggie-friendly" will include several concrete steps to help vegetarian and vegan visitors to Barcelona, as well as encourage residents to embrace a meat-free diet - at least one day a week.
City Hall will produce a vegetarian guide to Barcelona, as well as promote vegetarianism by establishing a new BCNvegPoint - a space for vegetarians and vegetarian or vegan businesses.
The city will also promote the global Meat Free Mondays campaign.
The campaign was launched by Paul McCartney along with his daughters, Mary and Stella, in 2009 to raise awareness of the detrimental environmental impact of eating meat.
