ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of the council of the London Borough of Camden to reduce the use of meat and dairy products in schools, offices and care homes. It states that the council also hopes to cut its carbon footprint, through less involvement with cattle, which emit significant amounts of methane. It adds that it would be better to use rabbit rather than beef which is cited as being the most intensively reared meat.
