Did you know that an area of rainforest the size of 100 football pitches is cut down every hour to create room for grazing cattle? Or that it can take 2,350 litres
of fresh water – around 30 bathtubs! – to produce just one beef burger?
These are some of the environmental messages Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney are keen to spread following the launch of their documentary short, One Day A Week with Emma Stone and Woody Harrelson, at the end of last year. Since the launch, Sir Paul and his daughters Mary and Stella report they have seen a noticeable increase in support for Meat Free Monday.
In an interview about the film, Sir Paul says: 'It's actually quite fun when you look at what you do, what you eat, how you live, and think, "Is this what I'm going
to do the rest of my life, or would it be interesting to try to make a change?" I think a lot of people do that these days.'
