Musical Duo Promote Veganism

Rodrigo y Gabriela take part in PETA campaign.

Rodrigo Sánchez and Gabriela Quintero, who make up the Mexican acoustic guitar group Rodrigo y Gabriela, have joined forces with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in a new campaign promoting a vegan lifestyle. In the campaign video, Quintero reveals that she recently went vegan after PETA exposed her to the cruelties associated with egg farming and leather, and Sánchez cites veganism as “one solution for many, many problems.” The duo explain that they see human and animal rights linked, and encourage people to consider adopting a veg diet. Sánchez suggests that if you start by cutting out meat and animal products one or two times a week, then you start to become more compassionate, thinking more about not just animals, but also about world hunger.
