MISSION: Inspire Your Family!

How’s your pledge to try veganism going? Maybe you’re a pro, but hopefully if you’re already vegan, you encouraged your fam and friends to try out veganism for the new year. Most of us find it really easy to stay inspired—whether it’s because of our awesome animal companions or health reasons or through daily reminders of the cruelty involved in meat production—but some people aren’t so lucky.

One great way to keep your family from slipping up is to remind them about the awesome choice they have made! And where better to remind them than the fridge? Check out some examples below, and then create your own!

Here’s how:

  1. Pick a few facts that you think everyone should remember before opening the fridge. They can be things like how many animals are killed per year for food, how the factory farming of animals is the number one cause of climate change, or just how gross it is to eat someone else’s fat, flesh, skin, and muscle (yuck!). Make sure that your facts are cute—not too gruesome or rude.
  2. Handwrite or type the facts on a sheet of paper.
  3. Post them on your fridge for everyone in your family to see.
  4. Send a picture of your decked-out fridge to StreetTeam@peta2.com, and we’ll give you 1,000 points!

    Many animals used for food have never been allowed to eat food themselves. They have been raised on chemicals. Their bodies are tortured.

    Meat is chemicals and pain.

    Be good to your bodies. Don’t intake their chemicals and pain and wonder why you have high anxiety.

    Be good to yourself.

    This is a great idea but I think it’s more effective to stick the notes to the actual meat packet/milk carton etc. as they then are more lkely to read it.

    I’ve tried everything for my family and friends but they just ignore me. Once they decided to go out for Mac and i when with them to try and redirect them to a place more animal friendly, but my stubborn sister insisted on Mac. So i told my mom that im not gana enter the Restaurant (if u can call it that. i ended up in the parking lot in the freezing cold. And now my sisters keep going there just to oppose me. I dont know what more i can do.

      I’ve heard some not so nice comments from my family members. I just ignore it. Just roll your eyes and walk away while thinking about all the animals you’re saving by not eating meat.
      Good luck Juliette!

    Well, I’m a vegan, my mother is a vegetarian and my brother is lactose intolerant so there’s rarely every any meat or dairy in my house. Except for eggs, I need to convince them to stop eating chicken abortions (that’s what my friend calls eggs).
    I’m gonna try the note thing, hopefully it helps :)

    Ive tried explaining – Ive tried showing videos – pictures – facts – Ive tried so many things to make him understand at least one little bit – but I always get the same responses
    ‘I dont care’
    ‘I dont kill them myself – I just eat them’
    ‘but their tasty..’
    ‘thats stupid’

    :( so I give up :(

    I used to tape pictures of PETA investigations to the fridge, but my dad didn’t care, so eventually I stopped :(. But good luck!

      Hey Jake,
      Why not try health facts? Some people respond more towards information rather than emotions! Keep trying, buddy!!
