Pupils to Be Peppered With Free PETA Paper?

Published by PETA.

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.
