New YorkWhat:    On Monday, a pair of PETA’s “Lettuce Ladies” will wear only strategically placed lettuce leaves as they arrive, check in, go through security, and board the inaugural flight to Havana.

When:    Monday, November 28

Where:    John F. Kennedy International Airport, Terminal 5, JetBlue Departures

Carrying green suitcases that proclaim, “Vegan Ambassador to Cuba,” and are stuffed with copies of PETA Latino’s Spanish-language vegan starter kits, the Lettuce Ladies will encourage everyone they meet to save animals by going vegan—and they’ll also help out local animal-rescue groups by delivering much-needed veterinary supplies.

As representatives of PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way”—they will also carry treats for any stray dogs they meet.
