PETA Calls On Coldplay to Serve Only Vegan Meals on World Tour

London – Following reports that Coldplay is aiming to make its Music of the Spheres world tour as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible, PETA has sent a letter calling on the rock group to go all by serving only vegan foods during each concert.

In the letter (available here), PETA points out that raising and killing animals for food contributes to deforestation, water shortages, greenhouse-gas emissions, and other environmental problems, while eating vegan can reduce a person’s dietary carbon footprint by up to 73%.

“As you may know, animal agriculture contributes to many of the serious environmental problems the planet is facing,” writes PETA Director Elisa Allen. “It’s little wonder, then, that the United Nations states that a transition to vegan eating is urgently needed to prevent the worst effects of the climate crisis. And this can be as simple as swapping beef burgers for bean burgers.”

Allen concludes, “We hope you’ll agree that cutting damaging animal-derived foods from concert venues is a no-brainer” and offers to help connect the band with world-class vegan chefs to help make it happen.

Each person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death. Eating vegan also helps to reduce the likelihood of future pandemics and lowers a person’s risk of developing heart disease and cancer.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and offers a free vegan starter kit full of recipes, tips, and more.
