Help Your Animal Friends on Friendship Day

Posted on by PETA Youth

If you are reading this post, you probably agree with us that animals are our friends. So what better way to show them how much we care on Friendship Day (7 August) than by helping our human friends go vegan?


The theme of PETA India’s Friendship Day celebration is “Friends Don’t Eat Friends“, and it’s easy to join in on the fun. We’d love to send you a FREE Friendship Day pack, which contains the following:

  • Five friendship bracelets to share with your best friends
  • Pledge sheets that you can use to get your friends to sign up to go vegan
  • “Glass Walls”, PETA’s video exposé of the meat industry, narrated by R Madhavan, which can help persuade your friends not to eat your animal friends
  • Five copies of our vegetarian/vegan starter kit, which is packed with information about how going vegan saves animals’ lives, helps the environment and can lower a person’s risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity and other health conditions
  • Stickers
  • A stack of leaflets!

And if you want to be extra-friendly, how about taking your newly vegan friends out for a soya latte from Starbucks or treating them with budget-friendly gifts?
