Vegan activists come in all shapes and sizes. Some are loud and proud, and some are shy and subtle. If you want to spread the vegan message, then that’s great. And if throwing red paint over people isn’t your thing, there are alternatives. Here are some simply ways to become a vegan activist, without having to say a single word.
I recently found out that if you email PETA on their email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, then they will send you a pack of vegan stickers, completely for free! With them comes my personal favourite, the ‘I’m an asshole, I wear fur’ stickers.
Whether you have the balls to stick them on a fur coat or just in the street, they really make an impact. Stickers will be seen by thousands of people, and will stay around for ages.
You might have seen examples of this on Facebook before. You wear a mask, and silently show people the horror of Earthlings. Simple, silent, and effective.
This is one of the most impactful ways you can become a vegan activist. You’ll reach thousands of people, and won’t even have to open your mouth.
Become a walking billboard! Find a vegan patch that represents what you believe, and get sewing. Whether that’s on your bag, your coat or your favourite denim jacket, they’re eye-catching and very cheap.
If you can’t afford to shell out for a vegan t-shirt or hoody, this is a cheap and easy way to veganise your everyday wear. Check out my most recent sewing project:
Used throughout history, this is one of the easiest ways to make a statement. Boycott anything that abuses animals. Be it the circus, the zoo, aquariums, pet shops or fashion labels, but your money where your mouth is.
There’s a reason Ringling Brothers shut down and SeaWorld are phasing out orca shows, it’s because of good old-fashioned boycotting.
