PETA Wants Stoke-on-Trent Residents to Get a Whiff of Its ‘Go Vegan’ Message

Weston Coyney, Stoke-on-Trent – After a lorry shed its load of offal on the A520 Weston Road on Saturday – leaving a stench which is reportedly causing people to be sick at the side of the road – PETA is negotiating with an outdoor advertiser to put up its “Meat Stinks” billboard near the site.

“While this offal spillage may have created quite a stench, it’s the meat industry that really stinks”, says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “PETA’s billboard is a reminder that the most powerful step that each one of us can take to avert environmental disasters, improve our health, and prevent animals from suffering is to go vegan.”

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.
