It’s back-to-school season, and when we shop, we have the power to reject speciesism by purchasing only products made of vegan and cruelty-free materials or ingredients. This allows us to respect other animals as individuals who have just as much interest in maintaining their freedom and staying alive as we do.
We’re brimming with excitement to share back-to-school offerings from PETA Business Friends! From educational materials to compassionate looks for the virtual classroom, vegan and cruelty-free choices are everywhere, for every lesson plan.
