Last Day to Sign Up!!

For all members that haven't done so yet, please remember to sign up for the message board before tomorrow! It is now a requirement for members. If you have problems signing up, let me know so I can help you out. When tomorrow rolls around, if you haven't signed up yet you will no longer be a member of the team, so please sign up. I'd hate to see us lose any members, but this really is a minimal thing to ask, so it's very doable for everyone. Thanks!

What's wrong with "humane" animal products?

Peaceful Prairie has put out a wonderfully written piece that illustrates what is wrong with the "humane" animal products that are growing in popularity lately. It's called "Letter From A Vegan World" and is available in english and spanish. They also have a really great video, "The Faces Of Free Range Farming" that reveals how inhumane these industries really are. I highly recommend both of these!

I'd also like to thank Peaceful Praire for the ad they placed in the LA Times. Please check out their website, blog and Go Vegan Now! sites for recipes, free vegan starter kits, stories about the animals at the sanctuary and a ton of great information.

"On behalf of VegNews Magazine, we're thrilled to announce that VeganEtsy was named one of the 21 best blogs in the first annual VegNews VegBloggy Awards. Our team of editors navigated, clicked, and painstakingly perused hundreds of vegetarian blogs and spent months determining the best virtual destinations today.

Thank you to everyone for making this a successful team and a special thank you to VegNews!
