Students and faculty attended the Green Team’s Meatless Monday forum yesterday during long lunch at 12:45 p.m. in Ms. Moss’s room.

In response to the one-day trial of a Meatless Monday in January, the forum served as a chance for students and faculty to voice their opinions and have any questions or concerns answered regarding Meatless Monday.

“Meat has tremendous negative environmental impacts and because Harker serves so many people every day, us cutting out our meat consumption for one day a week would have tremendous environmental benefits and we could really reduce our school’s footprint,” Green Team secretary Anika Banga (11) said. “We got to hear the specifics of why people were for Meatless Mondays and why exactly they were against it and we also got ideas on how to move forward because everyone brought their own ideas and opinions.”

The Green Team will meet with the administration in the following weeks and present to them data collected from previous surveys and from the forum before making a final decision regarding Meatless Monday.
