Austin, Texas – PETA members will be outside the Museum of Ice Cream on opening day to treat people going in or out to delicious dairy-free ice cream and a generous sprinkling of information about the tastiness of vegan desserts and how they do three important things: They prevent mother cows from being separated from their beloved calves; unlike dairy, their production does not involve significant emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to the climate crisis; and they are licking the declining dairy industry.
When: Saturday, August 21, 3:30 p.m.
Where: Outside the Museum of Ice Cream, 11506 Century Oaks Ter., #128 (at the intersection with Agave Lane), Austin
“Customers are clamoring for ice cream that’s kind to cows, but while the country’s top scoop shops meet the demand for vegan varieties, the Museum of Ice Cream is falling short,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s giveaway will give people a taste of the delicious vegan ice cream that they can find just about everywhere except at the museum.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
