Meat Free Zone
Woodstock Animal Rights Movement
A Store For Life
P. O. Box 746
The mission of the MeatFreeZone campaign is to convey the message of health and compassion for all humans, the environment and animals via establishing “meat free zones” in individual houses, restaurants, food stores, picnic areas and other places of business. It is our intention to launch a campaign that will eventually set meat free zone (MFZ) as the standard of living rather than the exception. We see our mission and goals as a threefold process:
1…To have the meat free zone (MFZ) signs in all vegetarian and Vegan households and places of work. The signs are a statement of our lifestyle. Now we will have a symbol or logo with which we can all identify.
2…To have the signs in all vegetarian and Vegan restaurant windows and interiors. Again, the sign is a symbol and logo of the restaurant’s food selection and style. By having it in the window it will be a recognizable image for all to see.
and most difficult, we eventually want to see the creation of real meat
free zones within conventional meat serving establishments. We would like
to see restaurants, airlines, etc. set aside tables and areas for people
who want to dine without the sight of smell of meat around them-much like
the early days of Smoke Free Zones. There was tremendous opposition to the
smoke free zone. It was often ridiculed and fought over until laws had to
be passed to enforce it. We hope to have the same effect and success in
the long run with the meat free zone (MFZ) campaign.
comments are welcome
The Meat Free Zone (MFZ) campaign is intended to make the MeatFreeZone logo as recognizable a symbol as the "Smoke Free Zone". The idea was originally conceived when The WARM Store in Woodstock, NY, was in operation throughout the '90's (Woodstock Animal Rights Movement). The store was truly a meat free zone as it was the first cruelty-free, Vegan, socially conscious animal rights store in the United States. Now that the Vegan and Vegetarian movements have been growing so rapidly, more and more people are showing concern about the food in their diet and their overall health and nutrition. Many people are giving up eating fish, chicken, beef, pork (pigs ), dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream) and eggs. Headlines of Mad Cow disease, E-coli and salmonella are in the news with greater frequency. Vegan and vegetarian recipe cookbooks are standard now in all bookstores and many restaurants have added Vegan and Vegetarian options to their menus. We hope you will help us with the Meat Free Zone campaign by putting the signs up in your homes and workplaces and by spreading them to all the vegetarian and vegan restaurants that you know and frequent. And someday we will have true "meat free zones" in establishments that serve meat.
