Vegan scientist and author Jonathan Balcombe has created Vegan T-shirt Day, in which we're are encouraged to wear pro-vegan shirts on the first Saturday of every month.
This venture began a month ago, so you can take part in the second Vegan T-shirt Day on Saturday, June 4. Of course, it's great to wear shirts with vegan messages any day, but I think it's cool to have one day a month when all vegans wear these shirts. Not only does it allow us to recognize fellow vegans, but perhaps meat-eaters will be prompted to research veganism if they see a couple people wearing these shirts.
Don't have a shirt with a vegan message? Check out this blog post for links to great shirts. In addition, you can shop for shirts and benefit farmed animals at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary and Farm Sanctuary.
Of course, if you live in a hot climate like me, you ladies may have to hold off on T-shirts for the next few months. But never fear -- cute spaghetti-strap shirts also proclaim pro-animal messages.
If you have links to other cool shirts, please post them in the Comments section.
Be sure to "like" the Vegan T-shirt Day Facebook page and upload a photo of yourself wearing a pro-vegan shirt on Saturday.
