Sarah from peta2 UK wanted to let you know about some tabling she’s done recently. Take it away, Sar!

Last week I got to attend Roehampton University’s Re-Fresher Fair in London. I was pretty excited about getting to do some outreach to students about why Meat’s Not Green.

Thankfully I wasn’t on my own and had previous peta2 intern Clare, who came to help me out!

I was overwhelmed with the number of students who were so interested in the campaign and had never thought about how raising animals for food is one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global!

Check out some of my photos from the day:

On the subject of Universities—did you see Pulin‘s blog about nominating the Most Veg-Friendly University? Hop to it!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
