Happy Friday! Just a quickie from me today. I just received a compliment on the street for my Our Hen House tote bag, and I thought, you know what? I’m gonna share the love with the flock. #PRIVATE# So today, we’re giving away an Our Hen House tote bag to one lucky flock member. This bag is ethically-sourced, vegan made, and touts our tag line, “A place to find our way to change the world for animals,” along with our URL. They are part of a limited edition, designed by artist Razi Bhatt, and produced by Lion’s Share Industries. These gems are sourced from 100% recycled soda, water, and food containers in the USA, and printed using eco-friendly ink. They are more ethical than most people. (Heh.)
To enter to win, email Danielle at contest [at] ourhenhouse [dot] org. Be sure to include your mailing address, and mention that you want to be entered to win an Our Hen House tote bag! You have until midnight EST on Friday, March 15, 2013 to enter. We’ll randomly select a winner on Saturday, March 16, so good luck!
By the way, tomorrow’s podcast episode — #165 — features an interview with the CEO of Hampton Creek Foods, Josh Tetrick. This is a direct quote from an email I sent to Josh just yesterday:
It was an absolute pleasure to interview you last week for the Our Hen House podcast. Mariann and I pride ourselves on being “indefatigably positive” with Our Hen House, though I frequently find that the hope I am seeking inside myself is sometimes more a strategy than an organic inclination. But after talking to you, I feel like we can actually kick this animal exploitation thing. What you are doing with Beyond Eggs is beyond inspiring. I feel like this is the missing piece. Consider us your new biggest fans. To say thank you for what you do for animals (and what you are about to do) doesn’t seem nearly enough, but I’ll start there anyway: thank you!
In other words, flock, do yourself a favor and listen to our podcast tomorrow. Josh is changing the world for animals in new and invigorating ways.
Also make sure you take a look at today’s blog post that I wrote about subversive art prevailing over exploitation.
I hope that those of you on the East Coast are faring well in this storm. NYC didn’t get it very bad at all, but I know that parts of New England and DC were not so lucky. Tomorrow, Mariann, Rose and I are headed to NJ to celebrate my step-father’s birthday. We’re going to enjoy a lunch at Good Karma Cafe in Red Bank. (Their “Live Nachos” are otherworldly.)
