Do you know about Meatout?
From the website:
What is Meatout?
Meatout is the world's largest grassroots diet education campaign. On (or around) March 20, thousands of caring people in all 50 U.S. states and two dozen other countries encourage their friends, families, and communities to "kick the meat habit” and explore a wholesome, compassionate diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The 2012 goal of Meatout is to distribute free vegan food samples to 30,000 people!
It is an awesome way to spread the word locally.
Haven’t planned anything or short on time? No problem! There are so many things that you can do to celebrate and spread the word. (Be sure to check out the website for more information and for vegan literature & samples to share!)
* Bake cookies for coworkers
* Make dinner for a friend
* Write down a favorite recipe and share it with someone
* Hand out leaflets one afternoon at a nearby college or park
* Wear a vegan-inspired t-shirt
* Tell someone why you are vegan
Remember that no matter what you do, you are a making difference. So spread the word!
Not vegan? No problem! You can still celebrate :) Try Meatout Mondays or a new meat-free recipe. Check out some of the great blogs in the right column or grab a book from your local library. I encourage you to spend a little time this month exploring the vegan lifestyle. (If you’re reading this, you’re clearly on your way ;)
