Colorado is one of the biggest meat producing states in America, but it'll soon have an official meat-free holiday.
Governor Jared Polis is declaring March 20 “MeatOut Day” to encourage Coloradans to ditch animal products.
Polis signed a proclamation in support of MeatOut, joining governors and mayors in 40 additional states and cities who have signed similar proclamations in recent years.
“Removing animal products from our diets reduces the risk of various ailments, including heart disease, high-blood pressure, stroke, various cancers, and diabetes and a plant-based diet helps protect the environment by reducing our carbon footprint, preserving forests, grasslands, and wildlife habitats, and reduces pollution of waterways,” the proclamation states.
