Why?

The Meatless in March Pledge encourages residents and businesses to incorporate more plant-rich meals into daily practice. By incentivizing participants during the month of March, the hope is to raise awareness and grow the movement toward plant-rich foods.  As a city that is driving toward carbon neutrality and a city of wellbeing, it is important to emphasize a plant-rich diet and reducing one’s foodprint. 


Meatless in March is part of Santa Monica’s commitment to sustainable food. The City of Santa Monica promotes awareness about the effects of food choices on climate change. In addition to reducing meat and dairy consumption, we also promote eating organic, buying local and locally grown, avoiding processed foods, and minimize packaging and food waste. 


Meatless in March also creates a dialogue around sustainable food. As we look at the impacts of one’s behaviors, we begin to look at how we can create more sustainable food systems for our community.
