Make This Earth Day Animal Day

by [email protected] 

There are several things you can do this Earth Day to help the animals of the world.

* Go Vegan for a Day -- If you're vegetarian, go vegan for Earth Day. You'll be saving lives, as well as natural resources

* Help the Homeless -- Donate food, time or money to local no-kill shelters. This is puppy and kitten season. They need lots of help!

* Charity -- Make a donation to a no-kill shelter or animal rights organization, and make it a large one!

* Teach -- Teach people about the meat industry, fur, leather, animal testing, puppy mills, hunting, fishing, etc. Many people don't know the real deal. Ignorance leads to bad decisions. You might be surprised at how much people don't know.

* Get the Kids into it -- Give your kids things to do: clean litter around the neighborhood, collect cans and bottles for redemption and donate the money, let them try new vegan meals, let them "adopt" a cow, etc.

* Buy to Help -- Buy clothes, CD's, keychains, and other items from charities.

* Become a Human Billboard -- Wear a shirt with a strong animal rights message and post stickers and leaflets around public places

Earth day is not just about honoring the physical planet upon which we live, but also its inhabitants, human and non. By engaging in these very simple activities, you will be helping Earth's creatures, thereby living in the true spirit of Earth Day. And best of all, these activities can easily be conducted within your everyday affairs.
