Vegetarian Business Cards
Source: Bruce G. Friedrich, [email protected]

PETA now has beautiful vegetarian "business cards." They are business card sized, and have a happy smiling pig illustration on one side, with the words "Call 1-888-VEG FOOD for a free vegetarian starter pack."

On the other side, they read: "Millions of people have already learned that a vegetarian diet is the healthy choice for themselves, the Earth, and the animals. Call 1-888-VEG FOOD, and we'll send you all the information you need to get started. Or visit us on the Web at"

Anyone who calls receives PCRM's "Vegetarian starter kit," the "PETA guide to animals in the meat industry," and a booklet of recipes.

These can be left in stacks anywhere, can be carried around and handed to anyone who asks you why you're a vegetarian. It's a free pack of information, worth at least a couple of bucks (I think PCRM sells the kit for $2).

You can order the cards (50 for $2.50) by calling 757-622-7382, ext. 510. If price is an issue, I am happy to send out as many as you'll use free of charge. Email your full name, complete address, and phone number (even if I know you, so I don't have to look it up and retype), and tell me how many you need. Anyone who wants to see what the cards look like, send me a private email.

Oh, we are also happy to supply the artwork if you want to place it in your group's newsletter or pay to place it in your community's daily or weekly paper. It's a nice way to raise veggie awareness, supplying great literature at minimal cost to yourself.

This was the idea of Compassion 101, a Richmond, Va. animal rights group, who found a version of these (using our hotline) to be superb for tabling.
