Forest Defense Party in NYC
Victoria’s Secret Victory
and Birthday Party
for Wetlands Activism Collective
On Saturday, March 24, at 7:30 PM, Wetlands Activism Collective, in conjunction with Times Up!, will hold a party to commemorate Victoria’s Secret’s recent commitment to phase out the use of paper pulp from endangered forests and increase use of recycled paper in its catalogs and to announce an upcoming National Day of Protest, April 21, targetting catalog companies that have yet to institute significant reforms. Victoria’s Secret’s announcement comes at the heels of 2 years of protests, street theater, and civil disobedience by Wetlands Activism Collective, ForestEthics, and other environmental groups. The party will also commemorate Wetlands Activism Collective’s 18th birthday. Founded as the social justice and environmental arm of the late, lamented Wetlands Preserve nightclub, Wetlands Activism Collective has devoted almost two decades to successful advocacy campaigns on issues like forest defense, anti-consumerism, animal rights, anti-globalization, indigenous people’s rights, resource waste, and labor rights.
The party will feature music with DJ Thadeaus and surprise guests, free food (prepared by Freegan.info; a project of Wetlands Activism Collective); a freegan fashion show; updates on forest defense campaigns featuring activists from Wetlands Activism Collective, Rainforest Relief, and ForestEthics, environmental films; and slideshows of exciting images from forest defense protests and direct actions.
No RSVP is required. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. The party will be held at Times Up! environmental space at 49 East Houston Street between Mott and Mulberry. Take the B, D, F, or V to Broadway-Lafayette, 6 to Bleeker Street, or the N/R to Prince Street. For more information, call Wetlands Activism Collective at (201) 928-2831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Media Requests for Freegans & Dumpster Divers!! (updated)
Freegan.info, a group and website promoting freeganism, has gotten a
ton of media requests lately from journalists all over the country
who want to find local freegans to interview.
Freeganism is a lifestyle based around adapting practical strategies
to minimize personal consumer impact, cut financial support for the
capitalist system that is destroying the earth and human and animal
lives, and create new methods for people to survive and thrive based
on sharing, mutual aid, social responsibility, and ecological
concern. Freegan practices include dumpster diving for food,
clothing, funiture, etc., squatting buildings, guerilla gardening,
train hopping, and more. If you aren't familiar with freeganism,you may be surprised to learn how many vegans number amongst us - to learn more
. Or for a quick
definition of freeganism, visit
We are still looking for people to talk to media about freeganism in
Bakersfield, CA1.5 hours NE of LA

I'm starting a new job where I'll need to wear a tie. I have a few silk ties from my pre-vegan days, but they're largely out of fashion, and I want to make a good first impression. Cloth ties don't do it for me--or at least not the ones I've seen for sale. I was thinking that I could both look good and avoid supporting worm harvests if I bought some used neckties.
Does anybody know of a good men's consignment shop in the city?

i really am itching for a new tattoo. i wrote to my favorite tattoo artist in NYC and asked if he uses vegan inks and he wrote me back this:hi
thanks for writing
there is no such thing as a vegan tattoo ink
anything that would be purely vegetable would get absorbed by the body and
fade and/or disappear completely
that said, we do our best to use the highest quality inks that are as
organic as possible and as harmless to the body as possible
if you would like to talk more, please visit our studio
i am here every day except thursday and sunday from 12:00-8:00 p.m.
we can discuss what you would like to do
triple x tattoo
now, i KNOW this is bullshit. we've been discussing this over in veganpeople
and it's just a fact. see here
and other places.
does anyone know of any vegan-ink-friendly tattooists in the new york area?

question for everyone
when you go out to a restaurant that doesnt have vegan items specifically labeled how do you ensure that you are getting vegan food?
i find this particularlly difficult when getting asian, esspecially indian food.
the other day i was ordering indian take out, and i read through the menu carefully stearing clear of any items that included cream sauce, etc. i order indian food a lot and havent run into trouble in the past, so i didnt think to ask the person i spoke to, although even if i had i cant be gauranteed that they would have been particularly helpful. and when my food arrived, it was most deffinetly not vegan...the sauce was cream based. luckily my boyfriend was here to eat it for me.
how do you avoid this?
and also...if you order something that seems vegan on the menu and it comes out and is not vegan (this has happened to me when i've ordered salads that come out with grated cheese on it, etc)...do you send it back? i never have the guts to do this. i just normally dont eat it.
whats your take?

Hey I am Jess. I am 23 and I live in Jersey. I've been vegetarian for 6 years now. It would've been 7 but I took a year off for personal reasons. I would love to become vegan. I've eliminated a lot of dairy from my diet...but I am a sucker for cheese. It's been hard getting back into eating healthy again from eating meat for a year. I am trying to look for fairly easy yet filling recipes to make. I am in NYC all the time. My favorite vegan restaurant there is Kate's Joint over by Ave A.

I'm Artemis, I live in Mamaroneck, NY, about 30 miles North of NYC, and I've been a vegetarian for (give or take) 2 years, and I'm not going back. I have a largely ironic factor in my life.. the sad thing is, my grandfather owns a cattle ranch in TX that raises meat cows, which means it will end up in my hands someday. It's immediately becoming a bunny farm (wild rabbits all over the place, they live and die naturally and undisturbed, I'm just keeping them away from the redneck fur hunters of that particular spot in Texas) when it's signed to me.
That, and I'm straight edge (no drugs/alcohol, no casual sex) and... my mom and stepdad sell beer for a living. :-\
Right now I'm in California with family friends, so I've been with and around many others of the same diet, which is a relief from Mamaroneck, where there's about... what... 2 vegetarians and some don't even know what the word MEANS?
I'm on line fairly often, so if you want to talk about... um... whatever, my screenames are as followed:
AIM= loyalxev (you're most likely to catch me here, but who knows)
In good health,
