Scantily Clad Lovelies Hand Out Soy Ice Cream Sandwiches Along With Information on the Dairy Industry's Link to Climate Change
For Immediate Release: July 8, 2010
Contact: Kristin Richards 757-622-7382
Philadelphia -- Wearing skimpy suits that would make the Good Humor Man blush, two PETA beauties will hand out free Tofutti Cuties (delicious nondairy ice cream sandwiches) in Philadelphia on Friday to help residents keep cool despite recent record-high temperatures. Along with the tofu treats, the PETA supporters will distribute leaflets detailing how choosing nondairy treats can lead to more than just immediate heat relief.
When: Friday, July 9, 12 noon
Where: In front of Independence Visitor Center (at the northeast corner of Market and Sixth streets), Philadelphia
"We hope that these frozen treats will help folks who are feeling the heat in Philadelphia understand that they can be part of the solution to climate change," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Choosing healthy and delicious dairy-free foods is good for the planet and helps prevent the suffering of cows on dairy factory farms."
Raising animals for food is a major cause of greenhouse-gas emissions. Factory farming is the single largest source of both methane and nitrous oxide emissions, which play a significant role in climate change. (Nitrous oxide is approximately 300 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide is.) The University of Chicago also reports that going vegan is 50 percent more effective in reducing greenhouse-gas emissions than switching to a hybrid car.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
