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