The ladies will also give out copies of PETA’s vegan starter kit and “Glass Walls” DVDs to help people offset holiday weight gain and resolve to do better in 2015 for their health, the well-being of the planet, and animals.

Where:           The intersection of Michigan Avenue and Superior Street, Chicago

When:             Monday, December 29, 12 p.m.

On average, vegans and vegetarians are significantly leaner than meat-eaters are. Also, the consumption of meat and other animal-derived products has been conclusively linked to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and, of course, obesity. The meat industry is responsible for the daily suffering and terrifying deaths of billions of animals and is also a top emitter of the greenhouse gasses that contribute to climate change.

“Turning over a new leaf is easy,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “With an abundance of delicious vegan choices now available, there’s never been a better time to make the switch to a kinder, gentler, healthier diet.”
