Washington -- PETA members, dressed as a carrot, a stalk of celery, and the planet Earth;
wearing patriotic red, white, and blue hats; and holding signs that read,
"Turn the White House Green, Go Vegan," will be dancing through the
Inauguration Day crowd in Washington on Monday. Their point? That the best way
to reach that much-touted green goal is to go vegan.
When: Monday, January 21, 12 noon–3 p.m.
Where: In the vicinity of Capitol Hill, Washington
"Because red and white meats are responsible for environmental degradation
on so many levels, you can't be 'green' if you have a chicken or steak on your
plate," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "We're calling on
President Obama to do his part to protect the planet in the name of his
constituents, animal inhabitants, and human health by going vegan."
Raising animals for food is a leading cause of water pollution, land
degradation, and the greenhouse-gas emissions responsible for climate change.
Also, it takes about 16 pounds of grain to make 1 pound of meat. And raising
animals for food consumes more than half of all water used in the U.S.
Additionally, researchers at the University of Chicago concluded that switching
from a standard American diet to a vegan diet is more effective at combating
climate change than switching from a standard American car to a hybrid.
