Belgian city leads the world and has 'veggie' days
The Belgian city of Ghent is apparently the first in the world to go vegetarian at least once a week - see this BBC News article.
On the regular weekly meatless day civil servants and elected councillors will opt for vegetarian meals in order to reduce Ghent's impact on the environment. Schools will also adopt the veggie days which will help tackle obesity. 90,000 "veggie street maps" are being printed to help people find the city's vegetarian eateries.
Ghent leads the world!
