Thanks for ordering a “Meat’s Not Green” leafleting pack! It should arrive in...
Aer blends party-anthem choruses with laid-back acoustic guitars, sugary dance songs with down-to-Earth attitudes, and the swagger of hip-hop pros with the hype of being Boston’s newest kids on the block.
We recently sat down with Carter Schultz and David von Mering—the members of Aer—to hear what they had to say about being vegetarian in high school, why adopted dogs deserve love, and what you can do to help animals.
As a lifelong vegetarian, David is most likely a pro at busting myths about being vegetarian (we get plenty of protein) and finding the meat-free options at any fast-food restaurant (yes, you can still eat Taco Bell!), but for those of you who might need some extra tips, allow me to break it down:
I think it’s important to know how you’re getting what you’re getting. Whether it’s a coat that people are making in Asia or it’s a sandwich with some meat in it. You should know how it’s getting there.
Whether you’re buying a coat trimmed with a little fur, an angora sweater, or a purebred puppy from a pet store, it’s important to know where your purchases came from.
Dogs in pet stores often come from puppy mills and other breeders, and animals on fur farms are crammed into tiny cages with no one to care for them. If you’re looking to welcome an animal into your home, make the compassionate choice to save a life by adopting—and always have your animal companions spayed or neutered!
