Bali: A Destination for Vegans

Posted on by Ashley Fruno

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika has stated that last Sunday, April 3, is to be recognized on the island as World Organic Vegan Day. He also encouraged the Balinese to make Friday the day of abstinence (from all animal products, that is!).

It makes PETA even happier to hear that Bali Green Community leader Made Aripta Wibawa has acknowledged that one of the greatest causes of climate change is meat production: “A Food and Agriculture Organization report disclosed that such farms and the whole process of preparing livestock into consumption-grade meat contributed 18 percent of the world’s total carbon emissions. … That percentage is higher than the 13 percent generated by all vehicles in the world combined ,” said Wibawa.

The best way for anyone to reduce their carbon footprint is to take up a vegetarian lifestyle. Take PETA’s Pledge to Go Veg today!
