Stars flock to support Sir Paul and Stella McCartney's vegetarian campaign
The stars were out in force yesterday to support Sir Paul McCartney and his family’s launch of Meat Free Monday.
The likes of Kate Bosworth and her boyfriend James Rousseau, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and hubby Richard Young, and model Laura Bailey joined Sir Paul, son James, and daughters Stella and Mary in St. James’s Park to launch the initiative.
Even one of Paul’s associates from the past – Yoko Ono, widow of his Beatles bandmate John Lennon – turned up to support his ‘clever idea’, which aims to combat climate change.
Sir Paul said: ‘I thought this was a great idea. To just reduce your meat intake maybe by one day a week and this would seriously benefit the planet.
‘My family have been this way for years – vegetarians, that is.’
The campaign was prompted by a United Nations report, which says meat production is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions.
Singer Moby, artist Sam Taylor-Wood, Kelly Osbourne and Little Britain stars David Walliams and Matt Lucas also turned up to support the event.
