Lifesaving Message on Playground Equipment
To the thieves who helped themselves to a “clubhouse climber” that was in the yard of a small day-care center in Syracuse, New York, we’d like to say, “Thanks!”
Sure, it was deplorable for them to steal from a day-care center—but because they did, PETA now has an opportunity to save the lives of countless animals and children. We’ve offered to replace the stolen item with a jungle gym that features ads that make the connection between skyrocketing childhood obesity rates and meaty meals—and encourage healthier vegetarian fare.
In our letter to the day-care center operator, Mary Jarvis, PETA’s Tracy Reiman points out that eating meat and other animal products feeds the childhood obesity epidemic and contributes to the rise of type 2 diabetes and early signs of heart disease in children.
We think our proposal is a real win-win for the day-care center. What do you think?
