'Meatless Monday' video earns HSUS a Telly Award

The Humane Society of the United States has been named a winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for their Meatless Monday video.

Meatless Monday was developed by the U.S. government during WW1 to save resources, which eventually led to Meatless Mondays as a way to raise awareness of the benefits of eating less meat. Currently, Meatless Monday is observed by entire school districts across the United States, as well as restaurants—yes restaurants!

The Telly Awards chose HSUS as one of the winners from 11,000 entries from around the world, and is the premier award honoring local and regional television and online commercials to fine film productions. The HSUS video is an accessible and explanatory way for everyone to take a little something from Meatless Mondays.

Even if you are not vegan or vegetarian, do you observe Meatless Mondays? Let us know on Facebook.
