Amtrak is conducting test runs of trains fueled with biodiesel made from beef tallow along its Heartland Flyer route, so PETA is urging Amtrak to get its eco-friendly efforts on the right track, asking that the company instead feature our sexy Lettuce Lady ad:


Amtrak officials might mean well, but burning a product made possible by the environmentally destructive and hideously cruel meat industry isn’t Earth-friendly—no way, no how. That’s why we’re urging the company to opt for animal-friendly sources of alternative energy and to promote vegan cuisine.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Amtrak will take us up on our offer. If not, its Heartland Flyer route might need to be renamed the “Heartless Flyer.”
