Tucson, Ariz. – As the United Nations (U.N.) climate panel has warned that widespread reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions are needed to forestall a “code red for humanity,” PETA Honorary Director (and former Baywatch star) Pamela Anderson is once again racing to save lives—this time in real life—by dispatching PETA to Tucson with Methane Offset Starter Kits to help locals clean up their act by going vegan.

When:    Thursday, August 19, 12 noon

Where:    On the northwest corner of N. Stone Avenue and Pennington Street, Tucson

PETA supporters will deliver the kits—which contain emissions-slashing vegan foods, including tofu and nondairy creamer—to city officials and give them away to passersby on Thursday. The U.N. has reported that a global shift to vegan eating is required to combat the worst effects of climate change, to which Tucson is especially vulnerable: Arizona is the third-fastest warming state in the country, and hotter weather is expected to shrink the city’s supply of groundwater even further.

“Farmers must move away from animal agriculture, and governments must act—but until they do, we have to take personal responsibility to try to save the Earth and future generations, and going vegan is a great step in that direction,” says Anderson, who went vegan years ago. “PETA’s kit is a powerful lifesaver for humans, other animals, and this planet.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.

“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
