PETA Offers to Help Save Public Toilets With Pro-Vegan Banner

Tywyn, Gwynedd – After hearing that the public toilets near the children’s playground in Tywyn are facing closure because of budget constraints, PETA has written to Gwynedd Council offering to help save the facilities by paying a fee to hang a banner reading, “Meat Stinks. Go Vegan,” on the outside of the building.

“While public toilets are often known for having quite a stench, it’s the meat industry that is most foul,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “This win-win solution would help keep the toilets open while providing residents with an important reminder that when it comes to animals, our health, and the environment, meat really does stink.”

In addition to sparing countless animals daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialised meat, egg, and dairy industries, vegans are less likely to suffer from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity than meat-eaters are. Plant-based meals are greener, too, because the meat industry is a major producer of the greenhouse-gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – offers a free vegan starter kit on its website, which contains recipes, tips on dining out, and more. The group’s letter to Gwynedd Council is available here.
