To that end, it is sending women clad in lettuce bikinis to the city to hand out veggie hot dogs.
Makes perfect sense.
Baltimore was recently ranked the eighth fattest city in the country, so PETA’s “Lettuce Ladies” are hitting the road to show Baltimore (and other fat cities, as well) how healthy, compassionate, and delicious it is to be vegan.
The free veggie dogs will be handed out at noon this coming Friday at City Hall, 100 Holliday St.
PETA says meat consumption has been directly linked to obesity, and that adult vegans are, on average, 10 to 20 pounds lighter than adult meat-eaters. On top of that, PETA says, foregoing meat also helps fight heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and certain types of cancer.
