Aimee Echo From theSTART.
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!
