FARM Activists Spread the Vegan Message in 40 States!
Vegan Earth Day 2014 was one of our best yet! More than 150 activists from all over North America distributed our new brochures at local events to encourage people to make the environment-diet connection. While most people leafleted, others gave out food samples or held pay-per-view events. Volunteers in 40 states and 3 Canadian provinces participated in Vegan Earth Day this year, distributing nearly 15,000 of our newest tri-fold brochures to the public.
Just in time for Earth Day, we released our new brochure, “Does Your Meal Come With A Side of Devastation?”, which makes the connection between what we eat and its impact on the environment. The detailed info-graphic inside highlights all the ways our food choices affect the world around us, including animal agriculture’s contributions to climate change, habitat loss, air pollution, and water pollution. The engaging brochure also gives simple steps to get the reader started on an earth-friendly vegan diet, including links to FARM’s Meatout Mondays and Live Vegan websites.
Our outreach allowed people to make the connection that the animal industry is destroying the planet. Volunteers across the country reported positive responses, sparking conversations about the how’s and why’s of a vegan diet. To view event photos, check out the photo album.
Together, our activism ensured that Earth Day includes the powerful message that a more sustainable planet begins on our plates.
For all sentient beings,
