To help Hollywood stars see the devastating effects of animal agriculture on the planet more clearly and inspire them to go vegan to combat climate change, PETA has included a pair of fashionable DIFF Charitable Eyewear sunglasses and a gift certificate to Veestro—a plant-based meal-delivery service and PETA Business Friend—in each of this year’s prestigious “Everyone Wins” gift bags, which are independently given to top Oscar® nominees.
Niche marketing company Distinctive Assets will distribute the bags to today’s biggest movie stars—including PETA’s 2019 Person of the Year, Joaquin Phoenix—in the lead-up to the ceremony on Sunday.

Celebrities can use their platform to encourage fans to make kind choices for animals and our planet. For example, earlier this year, Phoenix used his Golden Globes acceptance speech to shed light on the link between the use of animals for food and the climate crisis:
We hope our gift will inspire more compassionate celebrities to see how their food choices impact the environment and to face the crisis of climate change head-on by going vegan now.
According to the United Nations, animal agriculture is responsible for nearly one-fifth of human-induced greenhouse-gas emissions and a global shift to vegan eating is vital if we are to combat the worst effects of climate change. Each person who goes vegan spares the lives of nearly 200 animals every year.
Are You Ready to Fight Climate Change With Diet Change?
Take a page from Phoenix’s book: Go vegan …
… and don’t be silent about it. Silence is violence. Real change happens only when people speak out against injustice. Click on the link below to help us deliver our message of total animal liberation loudly and often.
