Hyderabad: In a bid to promote a healthy lifestyle among locals and ahead of World Environment Day on June 5, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India is placing billboards in Hyderabad with a message to become vegan. According to PETA, the initiative is being carried out in order to save the planet, Telangana today reported.

“Our planet is in danger because the meat, egg and dairy industries are bulldozing precious forests to make way for the animals they use and kill and the crops to feed them while spewing greenhouse gases emissions that are compounding the climate catastrophe,” said PETA India Senior Campaigns. Coordinator Radhika Suryavanshi adds that the billboards are urging people to save animals and the Earth by adopting a vegan diet.

PETA India says that by some estimates, the industrial farming, breeding and slaughter of animals are responsible for more climate disasters – causing greenhouse gas emissions than all the world’s transportation systems combined.
