WITH EVANNA LYNCH’S SUPPORT, PETITION ASKS FOR VEGAN BUTTERBEER AT THE HARRY POTTER PARKSby Aline Michel
Created by Harry Potter fans, the Protego Foundation, which fight for animal rights, started a petition asking that the Butterbeer sold at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to be vegan and dairy-free. The goal is to gather five thousand signatures. So far, almost four thousand fans have already supported it.
The campaign has called the attention of Evanna Lynch and Robbie Jarvis, who played Luna Lovegood and James Potter and host a podcast about veganism called The Chickpeeps.
“I’ve been a member of vegan community for the past five years and the Harry Potter community for most of my life, and nothing makes me happier than when these two worlds intersect,” said the actress. “I genuinely can’t imagine a lovelier day out than going to The Wizarding World to enjoy a Butterbeer with my vegan friends. I will be first in line when that day comes.”
