Columbus, Ohio – PETA’s costumed “prince” and “princess” will take to the streets in royal garb to offer visitors to White Castle a tasty meal fit for a king—a free all-vegan veggie burger topped with sweet Thai sauce. Bearing signs reading, “Be Charming. Go Vegan” and “Royal Decree: Go Vegan,” PETA’s volunteers will also remind passersby that choosing delicious vegan meals is the best way to help animals killed for food.

Where:           White Castle, 965 N. High St., Columbus

When:             Thursday, November 5, 11:30 a.m.

“Restaurants across the country are meeting the soaring demand for delicious vegan foods,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s volunteers are ready to let visitors in on just how easy and tasty it is to eat cruelty-free at White Castle.”

Recent studies reveal that 13 percent of Americans identify as vegan or vegetarian, and in the past year, 31 percent of shoppers said that they’ve bought vegan meats—this number rose to 50 percent among millennials. More companies than ever before are adding animal-free options by consumer demand, including Subway, Moe’s, Chipotle, Tropical Smoothie, and Red Robin. As documented by PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—vegan options also spare animals immense suffering.

“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
