What's up, people? Have you been thinking about going
vegan? Why not take a pledge to do just that this Navratri? Not only will you
be helping animals by doing so, you'll also have more energy to dance through
the night. PETA is here to help, and we've put together a nine-day plan
for going vegan for you and your friends who are not yet vegan. All you have to
do is follow these simple steps:
1: What's wrong with milk?
Watch this video to learn what happens to animals used for their milk.
2: What's wrong with eggs?
Eggs are about as vegetarian as chicken tikka or a mutton
burger (in other words, not vegetarian at all!). If someone told you that eggs
were vegetarian, maybe you should ask if they also think the world is flat. Male
chicks are killed shortly after birth because they can't produce eggs and are
too small to be profitably raised and killed for their flesh – and that's
definitely not vegetarian!
Day 3: Don't wear a cow!
Leather is not a fabric; it is the stolen skin of an animal who was killed. There
are so many cool non-leather styles available that wearing an animal's skin is
definitely uncool! Check out what
Pamela Anderson has to say about the cruel skins trade.
Day 4: Are you ready to take the challenge?
If you haven't already, try soya milk and delicious
sorbets and petha! They're all vegan! Believe me: going vegan is the best thing
that you can do for yourself, animals and the planet.
5: Make a vegan meal.
Most of the food that you get during Navratri is vegan anyway, but if you want
to make something special from our recipes database, please do – and don't
forget to let us know how the dish turned out.
Day 6: Take a close look at your cosmetics.
You may be surprised to find out that thousands of animals might be poisoned
and killed for your favourite brand of lipstick or shampoo. Browse through the
list of companies that do and don't test on animals and pledge to use only cruelty-free cosmetics.
Day 7: Silk is cruel.
Even small animals matter. To produce just 100 grams of silk, approximately
1,500 silkworms are killed. If you had ever visited a silk production farm, you'd
never want to wear a silk sari or a silk dhoti again. Use faux silk or other
non-animal materials instead.
Day 8: Still not convinced?
If you're still not convinced that going vegan is the right thing to do, just watch this.
9: Vegan Day!
We hope you agree that with these tips, you can be vegan by the last day of
Navratri and help others go vegan, too. Talk to at least two people about going
vegan and become a true superhero for
