Wear Your Animal Advocacy—Everyday
You can be an effective animal advocate everyday—wherever you go—by wearing your animal advocacy proudly with great T-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, buttons and pins, stickers, and even adding a bumper sticker to your car.
A variety of animal welfare and vegan organizations offer advocacy merchandise with powerful graphics and messages that will get people thinking. These can be great conversation starters wherever you go, and may help break the ice at a party or event! To be even more effective, carry literature with you so you can follow-up a good conversation with some information that the person can read later, and you will impress the person with your compassion, too!
