Washington – Vegan dining is more vibrant than ever—and to drive that message home, PETA has given its dozens of vegan starter kit stands installed around D.C. a weird and wonderful, edgy and eaty, new makeover, courtesy of some sassy models decked out in fresh veggies accompanied by the words “Get Some Vegan Attitude Today!”

“PETA’s new vegan starter kit stands invite D.C. residents and visitors to shake off their old image of what ‘vegan’ means,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “Vegan dining is delicious, it’s healthy, it’s eco-friendly, and it’s more popular than ever.”

The vegan starter kits—also available by order and online—are filled with recipes, shopping tips, and even a dining-out guide. PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—has installed 39 of the stands throughout D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. They’re located outside American University, the University of the District of Columbia, and George Washington University; at Metro stations from Crystal City to Takoma; and near shopping areas, museums, grocery stores, memorials, and the National Mall.
