The peta2 Week In Review
Posted February 22, 2008 by Marta Holmberg
Good day! I wanted to do a little review of what’s been going on this week so check it out.
- Grocery chain Harris Teeter announced groundbreaking improvements to its corporate animal welfare standards.
In collaboration with PETA UK, Topshop unveiled a huge store display window condemning the exotic skins trade on London’s busiest shopping street!
Our tour crew continues to rock out and educate people on tour with Cobra Starship.
Consumers around the world are still shocked to know that 143 million pounds of beef were recalled including at least 37 million pounds which were used for school lunches and other federal nutrition programs. And the government is admitting that they really don’t know how common this problem may be! Seems like a good time to get your school to add healthy, humane vegetarian and vegan options, so do it! We’re always here to help! (This funny video about this whole case is amazing, by the way.)
More hot anti-fur ads exclusively on our MySpace.
H&M decided to take a stand against “mulesing” of sheep for the wool industry. They even posted a statement on their website. Email them at email@example.com to say thanks for speaking up for the sheep (H&M refuses to sell fur, too, by the way!).
Enjoy the weekend!
