Spread the word about vegetarianism


We have lots of ideas of ways you can make a positive difference.

Use the media: Media producers are more and more focused on user feedback so make your voice heard, whether you want to correct an error or put vegetarianism on the agenda.
Get on TV, radio and in magazines: We often get media requests looking for veggies and vegans. Take a look at our current requests.
Be an active consumer: Make sure that the people who make the food you buy know that you expect the best.

Other ways to spread the word
