Aimee Echo, frontwoman for theSTART, owes going vegetarian to the wealth of information she received from her family. Books like Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution helped Aimee come to the realization that an animal-based diet just ain’t right. Aimee’s cousins, aunts, uncles, and mother have all gone veg as time has gone by. While the horrific cruelty involved in the meat, dairy, and egg industries were the main reasons for most of her family members’ adopting a vegetarian diet, Aimee’s father’s untimely death at the age of 48 due to a heart attack was a huge eye opener as well. Take a gander at Aimee’s insightful interview with PETA2.com, including suggestions for kids who are having trouble with their parents and answers to all those nagging questions you may have about being vegetarian, by clicking here.
Yet another piece of proof that the PETA2 Street Team kicks butt- Mike Ski of The A.K.A.s e-mailed today to tell us he’s been seeing Street Teamers spreading his interview with PETA2 everywhere. This makes Mike super happy, and of course we’re pretty stoked about it too. After all, everyone who clicks on a link to The A.K.A.s feature is one more person who is going to hear about vegetarianism. We still have our eye on The A.K.A.s, so keep an eye out for more juicy little tidbits from Mike and the guys in the future!
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
