Burlington, Vt. -- Another "hot-water" environmental issue will hit the University of
Vermont (UVM) on Thursday, courtesy of two naked, green-painted, and bewigged
PETA members, who will hold signs that read, "Go Green, Go Vegan," as
they distribute PETA's "Meat's Not Green" leaflets and vegetarian/vegan
starter kits. The bodypainted beauties' point? That while UVM's ban on plastic,
disposable water bottles is a good way to start protecting the environment, the
very best thing that concerned students can do for the planet is to chuck meat,
eggs, and dairy products and go vegan.
When: Thursday, January 24, 12 noon
Where: University of Vermont, at the intersection of Union and Main streets, Burlington
students to know that it's impossible to 'go green' without going vegan,"
says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Between polluting the
soil, water, and air and gobbling up our natural resources, the meat industry
is as toxic to the Earth as it is to human health."
According to the
United Nations, raising animals for food is "a top contributor to the most
serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global." It
takes an amount of water equivalent to six months'
worth of showers to produce just 1 pound of meat, and factory farms are a major
producer of the greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change. And, of
course, the meat industry is responsible for the daily suffering and terrifying
deaths of billions of animals every year.
