Earth Day Giveaway

Written by PETA | April 22, 2010

It’s Earth Day, and because one of the most effective ways to fight climate change is to stop consuming animal flesh and other food ingredients derived from animals, we want to know what actions you are taking to help others realize that “meat’s not green.” Tell us about your efforts in the comment section, and you might score the eco-chic “Tofu Never Screams” tote as well as PETA’s reusable, BPA-free water bottle.


Tote and Bottle


Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Two entries drawn at random will win both the tote and the bottle. The contest ends on April 29, 2010, and we’ll pick the winners on May 3, 2010. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting.

Happy Earth Day!

    I’ve been vegan for about a month and especially helped after watching the horrible video from China about the dogs and cats being skinned alive. It seems we have to educate everyone we come in contact with. I am surprised every time I shop at the biggest grocery store chain that supplies vegan food that I have to explain what I’m eating and why and that they do not know what these things are and why they are there. Actually it all started on Meat Out Monday and seeing Dr Barnard and PCRM’. 21 day vegetarian kick start an easy way for people to work into the vegetarian thing and then into vegan hopefully. Thanks for everything PETA does and I support any way I can. Have even got my SO going veg that’s amazing!

    I told everyone at school how unfair it is that we raise animals to steal from them and killed them to eat and how rudely it is done. I also told them about the pros of becoming a vegan. So far I got one friend to become a vegan and plan on changing many more in the near future! And Every Earth day me and my family turn off the lights tv and computer and eat in the candle light… meatfree meals of course! 3

    I have become a pescatarian. Thanks to TVP I can still have sausages for breakfast and the TVP sausages are so much tastier than real ones which have whoknowswhat parts of animals in them. This is my first step in eventually becoming completely vegetarian or even vegan. The only problem I have is with cheese. I love cheese so much. But I do get all my cheese from local organic farms where the animals are treated better than most humans. Best of luck to everyone this Earth Day!

  • MK says:

    On Earth Day me and my friends ate at an organic vegetarian restaurant where they turned off the light and turned on the candles

  • Emily says:

  • Danielle says:

    I made something from vegcooking’s recipe of the week brocolli and tofu in garlic sauce over brown rice and actually got my bf to try it and he surprisingly liked it!

  • miamikid says:

    I have been a vegan for years supporting PETA the Humane Society etc. as well. Hopefully people will become more aware of what goes on in other countries to the dogs cats so that we can wear fur. These poor animals get pulled apart before they are skinned alive.

  • sheila says:

  • Sarah says:

    I only drink water and to help the earth I use a stainless steel refillable water bottle so I don’t have to buy plastic anymore. I’ve been doing this for about a year now and I can’t tell you how much our recycling has went down just do to lack of plastic bottles. If we do buy drinks in bottles we make sure they’re glass or we just don’t buy them!

  • Heidi Rausch says:

    I decided to become vegan at the beginning of this semester at college and am loving it so far! Being at college it is sometimes tough to explain to your friends why you won’t eat this or that but it leads to educating them about animal rights issues and all the benefits of a vegan lifestyle!

  • Amy Steele says:

    I read “The Kind Diet 3 weeks ago and instantly became vegan. I feel better I live better and I have a clean conscious. I’ve been trying to convert and share info with everyone I know as well as suggest documentaries and post things on my Facebook about animals being vegan and living a kind life while also teaching kids in my class tidbits of info too. Enter me please!!!

  • Cynthia says:

    Being vegan is a choice as is being a Democrat or being nice. We can set an example but we cannot “make” others do anything. If they do not embrace it in their heart they are just going through the motions to make you feel better or get you off their back.

  • Jen says:

    My son and I are new vegetarians working toward veganism and sharing our journey with friends and family for starters.

  • Sara says:

    I just try to lead by example. I answer people when they ask me questions. I politely explain when I have to correct someone’s misinformation about veganism and the environment. Come to think of it my husband actually eats a lot less meat with me around doing the cooking!!

  • Panya says:

    April 29th will mark my fifth year of vegetaranism!

  • Emma Hill says:

    Today was my first official day of veganism and i have been a vegetarian for a year. I managed to get my boyfriend on board and i turned more than a few people off of their chicken today at lunch.

  • Vishal Seth says:

    I have been a vegetarian all my life. We as humanscivilized animals do not have the right to kill and consume meat of animals. We cannot take a life if we cannot create something of life besides our own. So in order to keep a balance we should respect mother earth and honor her by sustaining life as much as we can. To keep something fresh and lively we all have to work a little hard with effort and do our part. So Recycle reuse and recharge. Don’t Waste we need to keep something for the next generations to come. Vishal S.

  • Jackie Zavala says:

    I recently ordered my vegetarian starter kit and I am a PETA supporter! FUR IS MURDER!

  • AJ Burdett says:

    I get asked at least 5 times a day “Why are you vegetarian?” and everytime I repeat the same answer “I have no desire to hurt animals”. I am currently trying to eliminate all companies that test on animals from my daily use. I have converted all of my cosmetics over to companies that do not test and am feeling great about it!

  • Katelyn Inman says:

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 12 years and an avid PETA supporter! Go veggie!

  • Robinson Kremer says:

    I try everyday to convince people not to eat corpse. I’m getting something in return there’s one friend that’s thinking about stop eating meat he’s now eating less.. is it a good beginning isn’t it?

  • Katherine says:

    My boyfriend and I have started our own vegetable and herb garden bought low flow showerheads faucets toilets and LED lights. We ended our water bottle habit by buying filters and reusable bottles and we use only reusable bags when we go shopping. The best thing though? I’ve gotten our roomates to catch on AND at least try my vegan food when I cook lol They love it

  • rosemary carrizales says:

    I love peta! And me and my girlfriend have become vegetarians because we watched the ” I am an animal” documentary. So keep up the good work and we’ll try to spread the word more!

  • Terra says:

    I was raised on a farm where we grew most of our own food and all of our meats. Now I am vegan and my family has made steps to do the same. My boyfriend is now a vegetarian. And my family eats Vegan whenever I come home. It is great to share this better way of life with many people! Get out there and spread the word!

  • lois yiaski says:

    i can’t understand when people hear you don’t eat met they say to you “what do you eat”? hello there is plenty of food to eat other than meat!

  • Liberty says:

    I chose the vegetarian lifestyle when I was fifteen after watching a video about slaughter house in my high school biology class. In the past sixteen years I have tried to make more green choices and to raise awareness in those around me.

  • Stephanie Cassie says:

    I have been a vegetarian for a little over a year now. Becoming vegetarian was very difficult at times especially while I was in college.For my public speaking class I decided to do a presentation on animal cruelty. My presentation contained horrific pictures of animals and short videos.At the end of my 7 minute speech I convinced 4 students to sign up for PETA. They were shocked and never knew about the cruelty of animals.Its very important to educate high school and college students because they are going to the future.

  • Inda says:

    I made my friend use paper cups instead of plastic cups for her ice cream store. Still trying to figure out how to replace plastic spoons. And for being vegan we will have a vegetarian b’day party this weekend. It is not much but here the hope for a better environment for the future. Start from myself. Happy Earth Day everyone.

  • Janna says:

  • Other Kat says:

  • Anna Laskowska says:

    I have been vegetarian since January 2010 and have been slowly converting my husband as well by cooking yummy meat free meals for him. My mom was a devout peta member for many years before she died in 2005 and I plan on continuing her love for animals for the future generations in my family my baby Max is 10 months old

  • Belynda Cleveland says:

    When people ask questions I answer them. I tell them what to read and watch. For Christmas I am making veg and vegan cookbooks for friends and family.

  • Rachael Pahl says:

    I’ve been a vegetarian for two years and in honor of Earth Day I planted trees with my key Club group at school. I also put in some volunteer hours at SaveAPet this afternoon.

  • Melissa says:

    We have this blog and it has created a lot of discussions among friends and family. A lot of people have been cooking like us.

  • Lexie says:

    I’m a lactose intolerant vegetarian and I only eat eggs from my own pet freerange hens so I consider myself well on my way to becoming a 100 vegan. I cook vegan meals and share them with my family friends boyfriend workmates. I buy PETA and Christian Vegetarian Association merchandise and wear it or display it with pride. This way of life makes me feel great about myself and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Love prayers to all of you fabulous people!! xo.
