The Green Quote: PETA Asks Pope Benedict XVI To Go Vegan On World Day Of Peace
“On behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and our more than 2 million members and supporters worldwide, we applaud your strong exhortations for environmental protection, and we urge you to consider the fact that the most effective action an individual can take to fight climate change is to go vegan (which means not consuming poultry, fish, meat, eggs or dairy products).”
– PETA’s Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs, Bruce Friedrich, in a statement to the Vatican regarding veganism on World Day of Peace. In the past, Pope Benedict has been outspoken on the issues of factory farming and animal cruelty. Here’s to hoping the Vatican starts adopting a more planet-healthy menu!
