    “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” –Mahatma Gandhi

  • Vikki Hutto says:

    I’d really like a bag that says something like, “How can you call yourself an environmentalist if you still eat meat?”

  • Ayelet says:

    Saw some great ones in already posted comments… My submission is Ghandi’s quote: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” It’s not “snappy,” but it is so profound, it’s one of my all-time favorite quotes. I don’t have any suggestions for images, but I think people would see cute bags, read this quote, and I think it would really make them stop and think. <3 Love the bag 🙂

    If we were meant to eat meat, here’s my arm if you’re hungry.

    I would like to see ‘Make the connection….’ on shopping bags – I feel that many people just don’t think about our animals as ‘shopping items’ that was my problem. I couldn’t ‘see’ the animals in my shopping lists… From food; clothes; make-up; furniture….. I cried for days when it finally hit me… X

    Q. What do hunters leave behind? A. Orphans. Theres more to hunting than just killing.

  • Samm says:

    This bag already has my favorite saying on it! But if i had to choose another it would be “instead of killing 2 birds with one stone, shoot 2 hunters with one bullet” or “an eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind”

    Breedism is murder, and your the life support. Adopt an animal from your local shelter today!

    Did you know your burger had a face? Think about it. Go veg.

    Whips and chains belong in the bedroom not at the circus of course!

  • Kelli Hendrickson says:

    Here is my message! Tigers,Elephants, and Bears say “Oh my” to the circus. Why shouldn’t you?

  • Lucy says:

    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals and they answer: “Because animals are like us.” Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals and they answer: “Because animals are not like us.” (Charles R. Magel)

    You love your mom….. You love your children… So do animals. And they don’t know why you chose to eat their family.

  • Mel says:

    The greatness of a nation & it’s morale progress can be judged by how it’s animals are treated.

  • veggiejess says:

    “empathy not apathy-shall we abuse and slaughter you so you know how it feels? Didn’t think so.” People are so selfish and unfeeling. Maybe this would make them step back and consider that animals are just as emotional as humans!

    A kind mind is the only way to live in peace around the world. Veganism is the first way to start

    Would you treat your human friends like some people treat animals?

  • TracySwingKid says:

    I think of “Dexter” when I say this in my head but here goes anyway. “The killing stops here.”

  • Kimberlee says:

    “The wild, cruel animal is not behind the bars of a cage. He is in front of it.” Axel Munthe, A Swedish writer Animal abuse is completely underestimated. Ignorance, whether willful or otherwise is what is hindering society from making a permanent change in the field of animal rights. The solution is Empathy and Knowledge. What better way than an everyday accessory?

  • Cheri says:

    Remember, an elephant never forgets, and neither should you…animals have feelings too.

  • Jackie Gee says:

    Gorgeous bag! I would make mine say “Every year, millions of loving pets are euthanized due to lack of homes. Don’t breed or buy while shelter pet’s die. Pet stores ruin shelter animal’s chances. Adopt a pet!” with a little black heart next to it.

  • tazey says:

    why should animals die as food or tests for us later in life we will need them as our video games and there wont be any left! 🙁

    My message for an anti-cruelty bag would be “Stop slaughtering America’s horses”.

  • Rebecca D says:

    I like the “Meat is no treat for those you eat” saying. Then graphics with cute pictures of the “typical” farm animals.
