The McCartney family have launched a short film ‘One Day a Week’ highlighting the environmental impact of animal agriculture and encourages people to help by eating less meat.
Ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 23) next week, Meat Free Monday has released a short film about a huge contributor to climate change that is often left out of conference discussions – animal agriculture.
Narrated by Paul, and with appearances from Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone, the film describes how the beauty of the planet only exists through a delicate balance of climatic conditions – a balance we are dangerously disrupting through our insatiable desire for animal products.
The film uses Paul’s own music – tracks from his 1997 classical music album Standing Stone, as well as an unreleased song called Botswana.
Meat Free Monday’s aim is to raise awareness and inspire people to make a change in their diets from an easily achievable starting point.
