Pupils to Be Peppered With Free PETA Paper?

Written by PETA | March 31, 2009

When public school systems fall on hard times, they know they can count on PETA to pitch in. Remember when we sent message toilet paper to a struggling Detroit school? So, of course, we jumped into action when we heard about a cash-strapped school in Idaho that’s limiting how much writing paper teachers can use.

One of Pocatello High School’s teachers has actually begun selling ad space on the writing paper he uses in his classroom—one pizza joint has already placed an ad. While we respect his initiative, we thought we could one-up him. So we’ve written to the school’s principal, Don Cotant, offering to provide the whole school with an entire semester’s worth of recycled writing paper printed with our snazzy Meat’s Not Green logo on it.


Meat’s Not Green Paper


We’ll let you know if Pocatello High takes us up on the offer! It would definitely be a more eco-friendly way to ease the budget crunch than encouraging kids to spend $5 on a pus-laced pizza. Plus it would be one step in the right direction toward being listed as one of the most vegetarian-friendly school districts next year.

    Well better than your graphic image of animals or telling children their parents are murderers cause they eat meat. Maybe you are starting to realize that the best way to get your message across isn’t to be so over the top.

    That’s awesome! I would love some of that paper! You should make it available at your store! Also I hope that you can lower the store prices a tad bit. I would adore a shirt! xD Thanks a lot for helping schools! Ciara

    Here’s an idea…many years ago when paper was a precious and rare item students took small chalkboards and chalk to school to learn to write. Rather than hand them in to teacher for grading they simply held them up for the teacher to see and if any corrections were needed they were done on the spot. This was not just in rural one room schools they did this in the city also in New York’s lower east side 5090 students per teacher was not unusual. Have the kids use these or small whiteboards and markers available at any dollar store for exactly that amount and save the paper. Also any school that can’t afford paper probably can’t afford computers or printers either.

    Sarah King or Shawna Flavell I am an alumnus at Pocatello High School. This is very sad news to hear. I would love to try and help out in convincing Mr. Cotant in any way possible. I would much rather see the “Meat’s Not Green” logo than a pizzeria. Please let me know if I can help. I live 20 minutes away from PHS so it’s very convenient.
