Product of the Week

Jessica Dadds: "I'd like to nominate Down to Earth's Vegan Mix fertilizer -- 'An all purpose fertilizer made with no animal products or animal by-products.' I was very excited to come across this fertilizer, since many contain animal products."

A good example of appealing to specific audiences: Unitarian Universalists for Ethical Treatment of Animals ran this ad in UU World (large pdf).


Notes from Our Members

The Vegetarian Information Group of Rochester had a most successful 3rd year at Rochesterfest selling vegan food for 6 days. This event attracts 100,000 people, and our group had a 15% increase in sales from the year before! Vegan Menu: Riblet Sandwich, Cajun Grilled Tofu Sandwich, Southwest Burrito, Vegan Backroom Deli, side salad, fresh squeezed wheat-grass juice, yummy frozen non-dairy dessert bars! VIGOR gave away hundreds of free vegetarian information booklets and DVDs.

This past weekend, we had several CAA volunteers leaflet at the Minneapolis Annual GLBT Pride Parade in downtown. Two volunteers were on each side of the street passing out leaflets to parade attendees waiting for the floats to start, and one volunteer followed them wheeling around several boxes of leaflets. 1,200 Try Vegetarians and some GCFE's were distributed and well received. Best of all, CAA had a float in the parade this year, which positively reinforced the literature that attendees received. We had two people holding our banner, two people in cow costumes and one in a rabbit costume, three volunteers who passed out the "Meat's No Treat..." and "Pigs Are Friends Not Food" stickers, and a decorated pick-up truck with three veg royalties riding on board!

June 26 was the SF Pride parade and accompanying major celebration. Bay Area Vegetarians had a booth at the event, and Nick and I drove up to table and leaflet. Nick only leafleted, while I split my time between the two. Overall, we handed out around 1400-1500 leaflets. There were several other leafleters as well, so the leafleting grand total is much higher. While tabling, one young woman came up to say that she'd received a Why Vegan earlier in the day and was now going to be a vegetarian. Shortly thereafter, an older gentleman was at the table with a friend. He pointed at the Why Vegan and said, "That's what started me on the path to being vegan."
