It’s World Veg Week! You’ll Never Guess What We’re Recommending …

Published by PETA.


OK, you totally will guess. We’re recommending that people pledge to be vegetarian during that week. Obviously, if you want to do it for longer, that’ll make us really happy too, but this is a great time for people who’ve been thinking about making the switch to give it a try in a nice easy way. People who take the 7-Day pledge will receive an email with some tips on making the transition, and there are plenty of resources available on our aptly titled Making the Transition page.

If you’re already veg, well, you’re obviously exempt from this assignment recommendation, so take a minute to pat yourself on the back, smile smugly to yourself (like so), and then politely recommend the pledge to one of your meat-eating friends. By way of an incentive, here are some pictures of a pig who thinks he’s a dachshund.
