Cleveland, Ohio Despite all the delicious vegan food available in Cleveland, the city still lags behind the trend towards healthy and humane eating, ranking seventh among the 10 midsize cities in the country for fatty, cholesterol, heart attack supporting factory farms. , environmentally destructive consumption of meat, which is why PETA has just launched an ad campaign in the Cuyahoga County BMV, urging people to put on the brakes about eating animals. Digital ads that claim the animals want to live will run throughout the month.
“PETA advertising gives everyone green light become a vegan and think of animals as brooding and fascinating, ”says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “After all, pigs love petting and play, and chickens are as loyal to their families as we humans are.”
Every year, hundreds of millions of cows, chickens and pigs are huddled together on crowded farms with feces, maimed without pain relief, transported in muddy conditions, and slaughtered on slaughter floors saturated with blood and other body fluids. Everyone who goes vegan saves about 200 animals each year and reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other diseases.
Advertisements were posted on 14 BMVs in Cuyahoga County, including four in Cleveland:
- 8039 Euclid Ave.
- 3345 Edgecliff Ter.
- 6901 Rockside Rd.
- 2765 E. 55th
PETA, whose motto is in part that “animals are not ours to eat,” is opposed to specisism, a worldview focused on human excellence. For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
