Ringo Starr has promoted the Meat-Free Monday initiative to his 1.9 million Twitter followers. 

The musician, who was the drummer for The Beatles during the 60s, posted a picture promoting his upcoming book Painting Is My Madness Too.

‘Meat-free marvelous Monday’

He captioned the post: “Peace and love everybody.

“I’m having a fine Saturday, getting ready for super Sunday [and] getting ready for meat-free marvelous Monday, peace, and love.”

‘Peace and love’

Meat-Free Monday was created back in 2009 by fellow Beatles star Paul McCartney and his daughters Mary and Stella. 

The campaign encourages people to ‘help slow climate change, conserve precious natural resources, and improve their health by having at least one plant-based day each week’.

Is Ringo Starr vegan? 

Whilst some reports claim Starr is vegan, he has only ever spoken out about vegetarianism. 

In a 2018 interview with Rolling Stonethe musician was asked how he stays ‘so young and active. He replied: “I think staying active keeps you young. I do work out. I have a trainer. 

“I’m lively onstage. I have a vegetarian diet — broccoli with every meal. So I just do what I think is good for me, and I’ve been blessed that I have the energy to keep it moving.”
