This is cool. In time for all your holiday mail, PETA has released postage stamps featuring famous vegetarians.
Featured on the stamps: Sarah Silverman, Bob Barker, Paul McCartney, Ricky Martin, Russell Simmons, Mayim Bialik, Edie Falco, Casey Affleck, Belinda Carlisle, Pamela Anderson, Alan Cumming, John Salley, Vivienne Westwood, Sara Gilbert, Morrissey, Joaquin Phoenix, Marco Antonio Regil, Sam Simon, Stella McCartney, and Joan Jett.
Over at Brooklyn Vegan they found some choice quotes from vegetarian celebrities:
I think animals look to humans for protection, and of course humans lead them into slaughterhouses, which to me is just like an image of leading children into a slaughterhouse. There’s no difference.
And some words of wisdom from Sir Paul McCartney:
If anyone wants to save the planet, all they have to do is just stop eating meat. That’s the single most important thing you could do. It’s staggering when you think about it. Vegetarianism takes care of so many things in one shot: ecology, famine, cruelty.
