Ft. Worth, Texas – Wearing feathered skirts, combat boots, and holsters, a trio of “Commando Chicks” from PETA will dish up free vegan Taco Bell burritos on Tuesday. The giveaway is in honor of a new PETA billboard—featuring a chicken’s face next to the words “Would It Kill You to Get a Bean Burrito?”—that just went up next to the Taco Bell on W. Berry Street.
When: Tuesday, July 2, 12 noon
Where: Taco Bell, 1913 W. Berry St., Fort Worth
“It’s easier than ever to find delicious vegan food, including at fast-food staples such as Taco Bell,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s ‘Commando Chicks’ are eager to prove that eating vegan is as simple as ordering a fresco-style bean burrito.”
Unlike meaty dishes, vegan meals are free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol. Going vegan also spares nearly 200 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries. PETA has prepared a guide for eating vegan at Taco Bell (available here).
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist viewpoint. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
