‘Leavelets’: Don’t Leave Home Without Them

Written by Tiffany Rose

When I was 18 years old, I stumbled across an issue of PETA’s Animal Times in my doctor’s office, and my life—and the lives of approximately 2,600 animals—would never be the same. The information in that magazine landed in the right hands at the right time, and I never ate meat again. (Did you know that by going vegan you save nearly 200 animals a year?!) Now, I never go anywhere without some leaflets or brochures in my purse. Just think: Other people could be sitting in their doctor’s office right now, looking for something to read, and pick up the vegan starter kit that I left there yesterday. Leaving leaflets—or leaveleting, as I call it—is an effortless way to spread information about showing compassion toward animals.

Here are some of my favorite places to do this:

1. The Doctor’s Office

Waiting rooms need more nutritional information handy. This is a prime place to leave a couple of vegan starter kits. Order some here, and keep them in your car so that you’re prepared.

2. The Laundromat

Don’t take your clean clothes home without leaving a couple copies of the Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide to inform people which cleaning products do and do not test on animals.

3. With the Mail

My envelopes are never without a sticker on the outside, and the inside always has something educational included. Wrap your energy and water bills in PETA’s “How to Save the Planet” leaflet so that these companies know saving energy isn’t just about choosing the right lightbulb.

4. The Gym

People are there to get healthy, right? Let them know that while exercising is great, ditching animal-derived foods is the best thing that they can do for their bodies.

5. Nail Salon

Put some of PETA’s “Fashion Forward” leaflets inside the magazines you thumb through while waiting for your pedi to dry, because there’s nothing fashionable about the skin of a dead animal.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
