Hard to argue with PETA’s advertising methods. Now, the question is: what will a PETA “babe” look like showering on the sidewalk? Perhaps the cattle industry may need to send out a few ranch hands to rein in some of their lost herd…
Baton Rouge, La. — Naked behind a banner that reads, “1 lb. of Meat Equals 6 Months of Showers,” two PETA beauties will shower together in a busy Baton Rouge location to let consumers know that the best thing they can do for the environment is to go vegetarian.
When: Wednesday, February 11, 1 p.m.
Where: Intersection of Third and Florida streets, Baton Rouge
U.N. scientists have determined that raising animals for food generates more greenhouse-gas emissions than all the cars, SUVs, trucks, and planes in the world combined. Researchers at the University of Chicago determined that switching to a vegan diet is more effective in countering climate change than switching from a standard car to a Toyota Prius.
“It’s impossible to ‘go green’ without going vegetarian,” says PETA beauty Colleen Higgins. “Just by changing their diets, concerned people can help protect the Earth, their own health, and countless animals.”
