This year marks the 25th anniversary of the nationwide celebration of cruelty-free eating, and Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has gone the extra mile by officially designating tomorrow Michigan Meatout Day and encouraging all the state’s residents “to choose not to eat meat.” Her humane declaration has members of the state’s cattle, meat, and dairy industries up in arms, calling on the governor to end Michigan Meatout.
Not one to let bullies push her around, Granholm has stuck by her proclamation to promote a healthy, kind, and environmentally conscious diet. While Granholm puts the uber in “gubernatorial,” tell us how you plan to bring tomorrow’s festivities to your community.
