As part of the 30 days of vegan event, two vegan women took a parking space in Studio City today in honor of Park[ing] Day, offering some vegan baked goods and ice cream sandwiches.

Inspired by visiting spots last year, Jenna (no last name given) set the spot up after learning that Los Angeles is ranked last among major cities in per captia open space. "I think it's a shame," she said. "I'm out here to create awareness." She's also promoting veganism as a green lifestyle. "A plan-based diet does more for than the environment than driving a hybrid," a handmade flyer she made, citing a University of Chicago study.

Find them on the southside of Ventura Boulevard, west of Laurel Canyon Boulevard near Vantage Avenue (map). For all the spots around the city today, check this map.
