Atlanta – With the holiday shopping season in full swing, PETA’s larger-than-life sheep, alpaca, cow, and goose puppets will force shoppers to confront whom they are buying outside the stores at Buckhead Village, urging passersby to opt for vegan items and to leave wool, fleece, leather, and down on their original owners.
When: Thursday, December 2, 12 noon
Where: Buckhead Village, 239 Buckhead Ave. (at the intersection with Bolling Way), Atlanta
“When people see that animals don’t want to die for sweaters or shoes, they’re eager to put cruelty-free gifts under the tree,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is encouraging shoppers to spread kindness this holiday season and always by buying vegan.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
