Cross Country with Comeback Kid

We started our week with Comeback Kid in Vancouver, BC! From day one the Meat’s Not Green campaign was really well received. Never heard of it? Well take a peek.

The idea is simple—and brilliant if I do say so: Since factory farming is the NUMBER ONE cause of pollution, (yup, first, numero uno, gold medal of pollution causing) we’re asking that all factory farmed meat packages provide more information about the environmental effects of factory farming. For example, it takes about 16 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of meat. That’s not economically or environmentally friendly. That would give everyone the knowledge and power to make their own educated choice when making a purchase—that’s fair, right?!

So who knows meat’s not green? Besides the nearly 21,000 people who already signed to help save the planet, Jeremy from Comeback Kid and Ryan from Misery Signals! Both of these vegan boys were rocking our Meat’s Not Green buttons.


I would like to take a second to mention going the extra mile. Sometimes, we are outside in the cold so we bundle up, or on Warped Tour we buy booty shorts, but this Road Warrior takes the prize. What do you do in dark venues where it’s hard to sign petitions? Rock a head lamp.


And it wouldn’t be one of Paige’s blogs without a shout out to vegan food. Thanks to Gorilla Food in Vancouver providing us with tasty raw food, like basil pizza!


And Comet Café in Milwaukee for open face “meat loaf” sandwiches.
