Go vegan, urge PETA activists

Volunteers of People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) painted their bodies green and posed outside the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens main gate here on Wednesday to create awareness about veganism.

The activists were also seen carrying placards with the slogan ‘Eat Green! Go Vegan!’ The volunteers spoke to many onlookers and educated them on the importance of eating green and being eco-friendly. They urged people to not consume non-vegetarian food because it harms the environment and increases pollution. 

PETA India chief executive officer Poorva Joshipura said, “Even the ‘luck of the Irish’ cannot save the earth from the devastating effects of people’s meat and milk habits.
Whether it is climate change, overuse of land resources, massive water and air pollution, or soil erosion, eating animal flesh is wreaking havoc on the earth.”

She said there were many leading environmental organisations which agreed to the fact that raising animals for food damaged the environment.
