As shocking as this might sound coming from me, sometimes sitting around all weekend in your underwear watching Netflix can get a bit tired. No? Just me? OK, moving on …

Luckily, we have composed three things that will help you spice up that old routine AND spread the word for animals! Check them out below!

diy peta2 necklaceDIY crafts are the best! Look at these sweet jewelry pieces that Street Teamer Ruth created in her spare time.

“I started making jewelry after picking up some basic skills from the jewelry class at my school and wanted to continue making things outside of the classroom. I wore the ‘I Am Not A Nugget’ pendant around school and the mall and got so many compliments! It’s really awesome that my hobby has turned into something bigger and that I can spread the animal rights message in cute fun ways by just picking out what design I want and making it wearable!”

So rad, Ruth! Do you have any awesome peta2 crafts that you’d like to share? Send them to, and they might even make a future blog post!

Not only does 16-year-old Alyssa save more than 100 animals a year by not eating them, she even made THE LOCAL NEWS for it! That’s right! Alyssa used her skills in the kitchen to spread the word to the world about how yummy and easy vegan eating is.

“I’ve been completely vegan for a couple months and loving it. It’s the best thing ever. I was super inspired and decided to enter a vegan recipe in my local newspaper’s cooking column, and I won!

Everyone has been asking me about it and about veganism in general, and you guys have armed me with so much information that I feel very comfortable talking about it and informing others. Thanks so much for having so many great websites and resources for newbies like me!”

 Girl, I’m gonna have to try that recipe—looks delish! You can try out your chef skills, too, by checking out our recipes and sharing them with your family and friends. :)

sharing-wtf-examplepeta2's "WTF?!" campaignHoly crap! People actually do this stuff to animals?! WTF?! Share our new “WTF?!” images on your Facebook page and Twitter feed to speak up for animals now!

A weekend full of cute jewelry, good food, and spreading the word for animals? Yes, please! Netflix is starting to seem like a distant memory.

      May I just say what a relief to discover someone that actually understands what they’re discussing over the internet.
      You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
      A lot more people ought to read this and understand
      this side of the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you surely have the gift.

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.
