Washington – To celebrate the Bidens’ first Easter in the White House, PETA has sent the president and first lady a basket with vegan chocolate bunnies and ready-to-dye “eggs.”
“As President Biden has said, living Easter means striving to be better—and it’s better to let chickens and cows live in peace by having a vegan celebration,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “PETA has tips, recipes, and more to help everyone put a vegan spin on their favorite Easter traditions, from baskets to brunch and beyond.”
Ready-to-dye “eggs” are convenient (no cooking required!), are kind to hens (who aren’t caged in crowded conditions to produce them), and can become family keepsakes after Easter. Everybunny can enjoy eco-friendly, dairy-free chocolates, which are kind to mother cows, whose beloved calves are taken from them so that their milk can be used for traditional sweets.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
Note: PETA supports animal rights, opposes all forms of animal exploitation, and informs the public about those issues. PETA does not directly or indirectly participate or intervene in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office or any political party.
