BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

The Elevator From Hell

Posted July 24, 2012 by Rachelle Owen

Could you imagine living your life in a space so small that you could never spread your arms, lie down to sleep comfortably, or even turn around without knocking into someone? Every day is a living nightmare for birds in the egg industry—who endure this and worse.

Forced to live their entire lives packed into battery cages full of the living and the dead, most egg-laying hens never feel the sunlight until they’re thrown onto the back of transport trucks headed for slaughter.

To give people visiting PETA’s Los Angeles and Norfolk offices a new perspective on this issue, we’ve designed our elevators to look and feel like battery cages, giving people a unique view of who is on their plate. Check it out:

    That’s a pretty cool way to get the message out, depressing, but cool and life changing! Peta2 should start doing that in other elevators. Maybe then people will start taking the stairs and get their exercise.

    That’s a really neat idea, actually…
    Though, I’d avoid that elevator like the plague…
    HOORAY FOR TAKING THE STAIRS.

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
