Detailed description of the Good Practice
The city of Bremen found its own way to fight with climate change and promote climate change measures, namely it organizes Veggiday, the day when all canteens, restaurants, cafes, schools and kindergartens don’t cook any meat food.
Although as it seems that one day without any meat isn’t much, but in sum 52 days per year can save as much as 40 000 cars produce CO2 emissions, as it was proved by statistics that production of cow meat is a source of large quantities of methane, a gas that 25 times more harmful than CO2.
