First tested two years ago by EarthSave Louisville,
EarthSave International officially unveiled a new program last week to
support its mission of helping create a more healthy, compassionate
planet -- the VegPledge!
EarthSave began publicizing the website a little over a
week ago and has already had 1,000 people take the pledge! On Friday
alone, 200 people took the VegPledge online -- including enthusiastic
people from the US, the UK, Australia, Europe and Asia, all making a
promise to go veg for the next 60 days.
30 people signed up last week to help Spread the Pledge
-- by distributing materials and getting others to sign up.
The VegPledge is also for people who are veg and want
some help going vegan (take the vegan VegPledge!).
As part of the program, EarthSave is giving away FREE a
36-page veg starter kit -- the Healthy Beginnings Care Package -- chock
full of the latest nutritional information (with thanks to Brenda Davis,
RD), as well as a brief discussion of the many great reasons to go veg,
recipes, and tips for transition and shopping. There are also other
goodies, like free Vegetarian Times magazine issues and a great
VegPledge tee-shirt -- ALL FREE!
With Kevin Nealon (of Saturday Night Live) endorsing the
VP, it's an ideal vehicle to get those friends and family members who
need just a little help to experience the joy of going veg! Soon the
50-some EarthSave chapters (including those in Canada, Australia and
Asia) will be moving forward on the ground to bring many new meat-eaters
into the veg fold.
If you have a website, please consider helping promote
the VegPledge by putting up a banner ad (see http://www.vegpledge.com/promote.htm
) and you can help others discover and take the VegPledge -- for all the
