Minneapolis, Minn. – Wearing nothing but strategically placed lettuce leaves, PETA’s sexy “Lettuce Ladies” will brave the cold on Thursday in order to hand out delicious, free vegan hot cocoa to passersby in Minneapolis. The ladies will also give out copies of PETA’s vegetarian/vegan starter kit and “Glass Walls” DVDs to help people offset holiday weight gain and resolve to do better in 2014 for their health, the well-being of the planet, and animals.
When: Thursday, January 2, 12 noon
Where: Intersection of Ninth Street S. and Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis
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 Associate Director of Campaigns Lindsay Rajt. “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.”
