Finally getting around to posting about our final day at EPIC. I think for the next event, unless I have a lot to tell, I’ll just wait and do one post per event.
Next weekend is EAT! Vancouver which will hopefully be uneventful. I say hopefully because there are a lot of “organizations” there who may be bothered that we are there. We’ll see. The plan is be low-key and focused mostly on the environment and respect for animals.
Anyway, the final day of EPIC was good. I got some more delicious free coffee from Salt Spring Coffee. Yum.
One of the best things about being at this show was that so many people were friendly and either already veg or moving in that direction. Many people stopped by and said they were reducing the amount of meat in their diet. Lots of people expressed real concern for animals.
We gave out hundreds of leaflets (including over 125 copies of Peta’s Vegetarian Starter Kit and almost 100 of Farm Sanctuary’s Guide to Veg Living). 138 people walked away with our new environment leaflet. I was actually worried that we might run out of information to give out!
