Leaflet

Leaflet at concerts, shows, festivals, middle and high schools, and colleges with our Stop Animal Cruelty flyer. You can open and print your own flyers from the PDF linked above, or you can e-mail us with your full name and address, how many leaflets you would like, and a detailed description of your distribution plans.

Pass out our Go Green, Go Vegan! flyer at environmental related events, Earth Day celebrations, "green" festivals, or to your environmentally minded friends and family. You can open and print your own flyers from the PDF linked above, or you can e-mail us with your full name and address, how many flyers you would like, and a detailed description of your distribution plans.

During the holiday season you can pass out our Vegan Holiday Recipes flyer anywhere and everywhere - at grocery stores, on college campuses, or include them with your holiday cards. You can open and print your own flyers from the PDF linked above, or you can e-mail us us with you full name and address, how many flyers you would like, and a detailed description of your distribution plans.

Easter and Mother's Day are perfect times to pass out copies of our What's Wrong with Dairy & Eggs flyer. Easter for obvious reasons (Easter eggs); Mother's Day because, on dairy farms, mothers are artificially inseminated on what farmers commonly refer to as a "rape rack" and when a mother cow used for dairy production gives birth, she will have her baby taken away and sent to be raised for veal.

Milk carton derbies are another good place to pass out What's Wrong with Dairy & Eggs flyers. Other distribution ideas include: leaving copies at vegetarian restaurants; passing them out at vegetarian festivals (where many people might only be vegetarian, not vegan); and passing them out in front of Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, or other natural foods stores (again, where people might be veg, but not know the horrors animals endure for egg and dairy production). You can open and print your own flyers from the PDF linked above, or you can e-mail us us with your full name and address, how many flyers you would like, and a detailed description of your distribution plans.

Distribute our What's Wrong with Leather, Wool, Down, & Silk flyer in front of a leather store or a wool store, or give copies to your vegetarian or vegan friends who have not eliminated animal products from their wardrobe. You can open and print your own flyers from the PDF linked above, or you can e-mail us us with your full name and address, how many flyers you would like, and a detailed description of your distribution plans.
