PETA is helping mass-transit passengers go
even greener. When Norfolk, Virginia's new light-rail train made its maiden
voyage past our headquarters, the Lettuce Ladies
were on hand—and on the balcony—to make the inaugural run memorable.
With their cabbage couture and "Climeat
Change" sign, the ladies showed passengers (and enthusiastic construction
workers) that dumping meat, the number one cause of climate change,
does even more good for the planet than taking public transportation. Riders
were waving, snapping pictures, and giving thumbs-up signs—and, we hope, they were
keener to be greener at their next meal as well.
easy being green—we'll help get you started with a free vegetarian/vegan starter kit.
