PETA Picks: Five Employees Advise on Cruelty-Free Living

The following article was written by Megan Bedard.

Walk into the Los Angeles PETA office on Sunset Boulevard, and you’ll quickly see the perks of working here: Our super-sized chick mascot, Nugget, leans against exposed brick, where he is a frequent recipient (and giver!) of hugs. Employees perch with laptops on overstuffed bright orange couches, and adopted kitty and pup pictures adorn most desks. In short: It’s a rad place to work.

But the loft space isn’t the only perk. We’ve got great people working here as well, which is why we asked in-office employees to weigh in on the question of the week. They’re very in-the-know on what to buy and where, and they’re here to help you on your way to a cruelty-free lifestyle. 

This week’s question: What cruelty-free accessory is a must-have for you this summer?

One Question: Five PETA Employees by officialpeta 


Nare O. says … Crazy Rumors Vegan Lip Balm

I can’t live without lip balm, and Crazy Rumors has the best flavors. (I love the Perk pack.) They’re not greasy and smell really good, and the company is so nice. Crazy Rumors sent me a handwritten, personalized “thank-you” note when I placed my order. :) 

Cat K says … Contrast Floral Scarf

It’s perfect for breezy summer days and picnics in the park with grams.

Vanessa C. says … Floral Hairband 

I love chunky headbands like this one because they are perfect for spicing up an outfit or covering up a bad-hair day!

Michelle C. says … “Bullies Suck” T-Shirt

I love rocking this “Bullies Suck” T-shirt from Herbivore Clothing! From speaking out against bullying in the classroom to bullying in the kitchen, I know I’m making a statement this summer with this cute tee. I get nonstop compliments!

Cody A. says … Keep Company’s The Boyne Grey Fox Shoes

What’s a must-have for every summer that keeps you fly? How about some new kicks? I love Keep Company’s The Boyne Grey Fox shoes. Multiple colors are available, so pick up a pair or two and go kick some sand at the beach.

What are your picks for this summer’s accessories? Let us know in the comments section!

    I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, but I by
    no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will likely be
    much more helpful than ever before.

    Knowledgeable, but funny, as are many of your posts. I read through the archives over the last
    few days, and I must say I think I’m in love.

  • Timmons says:

    Since the admin of this site is working, no doubt very
    rapidly it will be well-known, due to its quality contents.

    I rarely comment, however i did a few searching
    and wound up here PETA Picks: Five Employees Advise on Cruelty-Free Living | And I actually do
    have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it look like some of the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    I threw out all my clothing made with leather, wool and down, so I’m pretty much going naked nowadays, but only at home.

    I told all my friends to stop buying me products made with leather, wool and down or I would have to go naked permanently. I don’t even like faux fur and leather.

    Fortunately, I have synthetic running shoes, a few cotton tees, a few cotton hoodies, a few pairs of jeans, cargo pants, socks, underwear and a few other cruelty-free or 98.6 percent cruelty-free “fashion accessories.”

    I even found a synthetic belt, although I had to shop for hours to find one that wasn’t made with leather.

    Also, the Body Shop is right around the corner for those essential cosmetic products and cleansers that a guy needs to keep his skin and lips smooth for those lovely romantic encounters after skinny dipping in the summer.
