Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I am conflicted..I just signed up to get some stickers and leaflets to spread the word about an issue I am concerned with, which is the eating of animals..only problem is that I am getting them through PETA..which is an organization I disliked once I researched the dirty news about them. ..but does it really matter? I am the only spreading the word and sharing information right? does it matter where it came from honestly if it helps change one person?
I think it's ok. I have heard there has been a lot of issues about PETA, but so far I think PETA has certainly done a great job on promoting veganism. So why against it if its purpose is for spreading and sharing information for others?
The animals need all the help thats on offer,go for it.
I feel your conflict. It is hard to support a cause that at the same time, paints a very negative view of vegans and exploits other causes for it's own. They have a very good message, obscurred by very horrible tactics and policies. It always makes me mad also that people seem to believe all vegans are related to PETA, especially since this organization has not changed anything in response to criticism (aside from taking down the pictures from the underage picture contest for "sexiest vegan" which had parents outraged). I am glad you researched them! Too many stupid people get behind a company without knowing a thing about it *Facepalm* At the end of the day, it's what you're comfortable with, but research other options! Maybe there's a better, local organization you can track down in the meantime.
