Phoenix – What: Wearing bikinis with strategically placed feathers and tall, feathered headdresses, a pair of PETA’s sexy “chicks” will dish up free vegan Taco Bell burritos on Wednesday. It’s all in honor of a new PETA billboard—featuring a chicken’s face next to the words “Would It Kill You to Get a Bean Burrito?”—that just went up next to the Taco Bell on W. Peoria Avenue, as well as several other pro-vegan PETA billboards that have cropped up near fast-food restaurants all around Phoenix.
When: Wednesday, November 15, 12 noon
Where: Taco Bell, 6745 W. Peoria Ave., Peoria
The other billboards include ones showing a chicken alongside the message “I’m ME, Not MEAT” located near the Popeyes on W. Thunderbird Road in Glendale and behind the Taco Bell on W. Peoria Avenue in Peoria, one featuring a cow alongside the same message located next to the McDonald’s on W. McDowell Road in Goodyear, and one showing a cow alongside the words “I’m You, Only Different” near the Whataburger on E. Van Buren Street in Avondale.
“It’s easier than ever to find delicious, cruelty-free vegan food, including at fast-food staples like Taco Bell,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s sexy ‘chicks’ are eager to prove that eating vegan is as simple as ordering a fresco-style bean burrito.”
Unlike meaty dishes, vegan meals are free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol. Going vegan also spares more than 100 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—and its youth division, peta2, have even prepared a guide for eating vegan at Taco Bell, available here.
