SAN FRANCISCO (Oct 2, 2018) – Three brave animal activists will be branded with burning hot irons in San Francisco’s UN Plaza to expose the plight of 150 billion animals who are painfully mutilated and killed for food every year. It will be the first time a live human-branding protest has ever been attempted in California. The branding is being held on World Day for Farmed Animals and hosted by In Defense of Animals, a charity that has been fighting for animals for 30-years from its Bay Area headquarters.

What: Humans Branded in Solidarity With Farmed Animals

When: World Farmed Animals Day, Tuesday, October 2, 2018, 12pm – 1pm

Who: San Francisco animal activists, In Defense of Animals

Where: Civic Center/UN Plaza Station

Calf 269 was born on an Israeli dairy farm and rescued by activists just days before he was to be slaughtered. Animal activists around the world now brand the numbers 269 into their own skin to stand in solidarity with the rescued calf and billions of nameless animal victims of the food industry.

This event is part of a peaceful international protest movement to raise awareness of farmed animal suffering and to build compassion for animals.

Don’t miss out on this unique, once-in-a-lifetime event!

In Defense of Animals is an international animal protection organization with over 250,000 supporters and a 30-year history of fighting for animals, people, and the environment through education, campaigns, and hands-on rescue facilities in India, Africa, and rural Mississippi. www.idausa.org

Rainbowgrove Dreams New Vegan Clothing Line

Company: Rainbowgrove Dreams

Products:

Big Heart Go Vegan T-shirt

Peace Full Zip Hoodie

Welcome back!

I’m so excited to share this new vegan clothing line from Rainbowgrove Dreams! Vibrant colors, high-quality materials, and vegan graphics and quotes… these shirts will become one of your go-to pieces in your wardrobe!

Big Heart Go Vegan T-shirt features a gorgeous floral heart that simply says “go vegan.” I absolutely adore anything nature-inspired, and of course, if I my shirt can promote veganism, well that’s a win in my book!

The T-shirt itself is an excellent quality tri-blend (50% polyester/25% cotton/25% rayon) material that is soft and gets softer when you wash and dry it. I dry all of my clothes on low to minimize shrinking, but that’s not a problem because this T-shirt has some stretch to it and won’t lose its shape. It is definitely has a form-fitting cut, so the website recommends sizing up and even ordering up 2 sizes if you’d like a looser fit.

Next up, is the Peace Full Zip Hoodie! I pretty much wear hoodies all year round… just like in this picture (it was nearly 100 degrees!). In any case, I love throwing on something comfortable that I can wear with leggings. With cooler weather just around the corner, you can bet that I’ll be living in this!

This hoodie is the perfect length (it covered my butt) and also has some stretch. This isn’t your typical shapeless hoodie, it will hug your curves and make you look much more polished and put together than the hoodie you stole from your ex-boyfriend.

The image on the back of this hoodie is so unique! It features the tree of life with a circle of flowers and animals around it. I absolutely love the green and purple colors that pop off of the light gray material. I love this so much!

The Bottom Line

Rainbowgrove Dreams offer vegan and nature inspired clothing, accessories, home decor, and art that you can’t find anywhere else! Their new clothing line includes designs that are so cute and unique, I can’t wait to order them all (seriously, I love every single one). The quality is fantastic, and these pieces are a must-have for every vegan that wears clothes! 

Head on over to their website to see their entire line! Let me know which one is your favorite!

Reviews

Vegan Police Shop creates adorable clothing and accessories that proudly spread the vegan message!

Their “Ferocious Vegan” T-shirt was the first vegan shirt I ever bought and I still love it to this day! It comes in Men’s and Women’s sizes and it is the perfect gift for any vegan on your shopping list!

The Vegan Tote bag is large multipurpose accessory for vegans on the go! It is great as a gym bag, school bag, beach bag… or just anywhere you want to promote veganism and your love of animals! It’s made of a soft cotton material and you can choose the color of ink that you want! *The style pictured above is not currently in their shop, but the “I Don’t Eat Pals” design is!

The No Animals Harmed Recycled Cotton Lunch Bag is AWESOME! It says “No Animals Were Harmed In The Making Of This Lunch.” You’re vegan and doing great things for the animals and the planet… You should give yourself a little pat on the back every now and then! This drawstring lunch bag is the perfect way to do that! This bag is soft and has more than enough room to bring some veggies and an entire container of hummus for lunch, along with other stereotypical vegan lunch items! It has a drawstring and velcro at the top to make sure all of your snacks stay secure. I love this bag so much!

And… Who doesn’t like buttons? Stick these on you backpacks, scarves, shirts… you name it! So cute!

The Bottom Line

I highly recommend these items from Vegan Police Shop! They’re high quality, freakin’ adorable and make the perfect gifts for the holiday! Head on over to their shop to see all of the fun designs that they have for sale!

All Around Vegan Box – Every Vegan Needs This in Their Life!!! (Discount code included!)

Company: All Around Vegan

“All Around Vegan is a monthly subscription service that aims to support, promote, and enhance the Vegan Lifestyle. This is done through the monthly shipment of Lifestyle products, Bath & Body products, Nutritional products, and Activism products worldwide.”

Ok, so who loves getting fun stuff in the mail every month?! I know I do! I am SO EXCITED to show you the brand new All Around Vegan Box! These guys took the monthly subscription box game to a new level! You don’t only get food in this box. You don’t only get bath and body products or lifestyle items… you get it all!

As always, if you don’t want to read through all of this, skip to The Bottom Line at the end of this post for quick info and a discount code!

My favorite part of this box is that it comes with activism products, which makes my vegan, fight-your-face-off-for-animal-rights heart so happy! I am always looking for new ways to speak up for animals, so what could be better than getting products sent to you every month that will help you make a difference?! Ahh! This is awesome!

Ok, Ok, so let’s jump into it and talk about what you get!

I was so excited to see that this box included food items from YumEarth! I have been wanting to try their products for a long time but haven’t seen them around. This box includes YumEarth’s Sour Beans “The Jelly Beans with Attitude” (I think that slogan needs to be my new nickname) and Organic Fruit Snacks. These snacks are GOOD! The Sour Beans have the same texture of jelly beans and have just enough tartness to make them fun and delicious! The Organic Fruit Snacks are fruit shaped and actually taste like fruit! They’re made with fruit and veggie juices and are gluten and nut free. I love these!

AVOCADO SOCKS! Yes, I am now the proud owner of some super cute vegan-chic socks that let me share my love of avo with the world! These socks are adorable!

Next, is yet another item I have been wanting to pick up. It’s a Nut Milk Bag from Ecobags. This reusable, organic bag enables you to make your own almond, cashew, macadamia, etc. milk at home! (Almond Breeze, Who?!) This will save you money and will cut out all of the unnecessary additives and waste… and it will last for years! This. is. awesome! Check out this video from All Around Vegan that shows you how to use it!

Next up… is a clean and healthy smile thanks to Jason’s Power Smile Antiplaque & Whitening Toothpaste, Eco-Dent Mint GentleFloss, and an all natural bamboo toothbrush! Seriously, I don’t know how they knew I needed all of this stuff, but I’m glad they did! This toothpaste is flouride and SLS free (please google this if you don’t know why it’s important). It is SO minty fresh! The floss is made with vegan wax (I honestly never thought about that before) and is made with essential oils… how cool!! I don’t exactly love to floss, but this brand is gentle, as the name implies, and easy to use. The bamboo toothbrush is awesome and way more environmentally-friendly than a plastic toothbrush that will sit in a landfill for eternity. LOVE IT!!

Last, and closest to my little animal loving heart, are the activism products. You know you’ve seen them on Instagram @activismstickers… those awesome “Eating Animals” stickers that are meant to be stuck on Stop signs. Get it? “Stop Eating Animals.” You get 2 of them in this box! Be sure to stick this to a sign in a high traffic area, like in front of a McDonalds, and post a pic to your socials!

Also included are Halloween-themed stickers that read “Think You Can Handle Scary Movies? Watch EARTHLINGS at NationEarth.com”. I freakin’ love this! Whenever I want to raise awareness, I ALWAYS, Always, always mention Earthlings. Now… I can stick these everywhere! This box came with 90 of these bad boys!!

Last, an All Around Vegan Button that I will add to my growing collection of plant-based and animal rights accessories! I really like this logo!

The Bottom Line

Get this box.

Haha, that’s all I really need to say. This box comes with fantastic products that everyone can enjoy and use. I think its absolutely wonderful that activism products are included because it is so important to spread awareness, not to mention putting stickers all around town is fun!

Another wonderful thing about this is that it is sent to your door every month. Whether you live in the middle of nowhere or in a big city, you will get to try out new products that you may not have had the chance to otherwise. This is definitely something to look forward to every month!

This would also be a great gift for any vegan or for anyone that is thinking about going vegan. This may or may not be included in my upcoming Vegan Holiday Gift Guide! (it totally is)

Thank you, All Around Vegan, for sending me this box to review!
