These “Arm the Animals” shirts are on sale at Loving Eco this week! I find these oddly cute. A bulldog with a switchblade! What’s cuter than that? I’m not into violence but I don’t think you’re supposed to take it literally, friends. But imagine if I wore this to Quaker school in ninth grade?! They would have been so mad. You weren’t even allowed to wear fatigues—and it was the ’90s!
Good to know about Arm the Animals: “Every month we donate a very generous portion of every sale we make to reputable shelters.” They want to raise awareness and raise funds! They have a Kickstarter page, check it out.

HELLO SEXY: Vegansaurus t-shirts have landed! »
HOLY CRAP, THEY’RE HERE! We’re (obviously) very excited to announce that we’re selling our first ever Vegansaurus shirts! I’ll copy and paste the info from our shirts! page below, but we’re selling a limited quantity and only through Friday, Oct. 14 (that’s only TWO WEEKS!) so you should probably get up on this as soon as you get paid. Arg! I cannot tell you how excited/proud we are that you’ll hopefully be sensually sporting these all over town.
Here’s how it’ll work:
1) You choose your favorite size and style of shirt(s). There’s either mens/unisex (s-xxxl) or fitted lady (s-xl).
2) You let us know your shirt style selection when you pay. There are two ways to do that! Either via the Amazon button on the shirts page. So easy, the future! Or, you can use PayPal—just send $25 to laura AT vegansaurus DOT com!
3) Once we shut down ordering, we’ll get to printing (silk-screened right here in San Francisco by vegan artists The Lords of Print)! Then we’ll get to shipping! So it’ll take about a month to get your shirt but then you will be so sexy!
From the shirts! page:
The official Vegansaurus t-shirt has landed from planet Great Stuff! It’s the pink dino (designed by Jonas Madden-Connor) in sexy silhouette. So sexy, so you. Limited time, limited quantity, fully awesome.
The shirt is printed on non-sweatshoppy shirts right here in San Francisco by vegan artists, The Lords of Print. It’s $25, which includes shipping (!!!) in the United States (email us if you live somewhere exotic and fresh and we’ll work it out), and 30 percent of the profits from each sale goes to the wonderful Harvest Home Sanctuary. The rest of the money will be reinvested into future Vegansaurus artistic endeavors (we’ve got big plans!). And maybe we’ll buy some cupcakes or illegal fireworks or something else really great.
About the actual shirts: They’re Alternative Apparel basic tee in asphalt grey in either mens/unisex (s-xxxl) or fitted lady (s-xl) so you know they’re 1) hella cute and 2) not sewn from children’s tears and/or Dov Charney’s penis’ ego.
Order before Friday, Oct. 14 and give pink dino shirts to everyone you know for the holidays. Hell, if your family is used to getting copies of Meet Your Meat, this gift is a step toward re-kindling relationships!
Finally, I like to pretend the above animated .gif is of the same person, first slouching and then, BAM: boobs a-popping. Fun!
[UPDATED] My grandpa used to say the best-looking t-shirts always feature a vegetable.* That’s probably why I’m so enamored with the organic cotton sexy vegan propaganda t-shirts on a site called Chiaralascura. They’re made by an Italian designer called Chiara who’s just the cleverest gal, because these are some of the first vegan propaganda shirts I’d be psyched to wear. Mostly because they’re kinda subtle and in foreign languages and stuff.
But here’s the best part: Vegan Cuts currently has a deal on said sexy t-shirts: $25 for $50 worth of shirt.
That includes UPDATE: They just changed the deal to include FREE SHIPPING, which is key because these babies are coming all the way from Europe, so shipping is hella expensive. Now you get $50 to spend all on shirts!
The deal STILL expires Saturday-ish, so get on it. Or just giggle at the shirts.
*That’s a total lie, my grandpa hated vegetables as far as I could tell and let me eat Cool Whip on my cereal.
Check out this shirt from new vegan t-shirt company Vegan to a Tee. I’m not in love with it—I prefer this one (it’s sexy!)—but I’m fishing for angry omnivore tumblr comments! It’s the only kind of fishing I recommend.
YOU GUYS: here is a personal confession: I LOVE CORGIS SO MUCH. My first dog was a corgi, he was THE BEST DOG IN THE WORLD, and having to put him to sleep because of his degenerative hip/lower back problems was my first and (thank goodness, to date) cruelest heartbreak. Do you ever love a thing like you loved it as a child? Oh, my corgi.
If ever given the chance I’d love to have a corgi in my home again, though I would never, ever buy a dog. Thank goodness for organizations like CorgiAid, which is a
not-for-profit corporation dedicated to supporting independent rescue of Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh corgis and corgi mixes of either breed worldwide. We provide funds for extraordinary expenses involved in rescue. These expenses could be such things as major medical expenses to provide quality of life for rescued animals, transportation expenses to move a rescued corgi long distances to a new home, and other similar expenses.
Don’t you want to help the corgis and the people who help them? OF COURSE YOU DO. You also want a shirt with Red Lobster Corgi on it! DUH. So come on and support them! Everyone loves a ridiculous shirt, and if you don’t love a corgi, well, perhaps you’re beyond help entirely.
Details from one of my favorite dog-blogs, Corgi Addict, below. If you report your recruit’s name as “Hoover,” I will bake you cookies, I promise, just send me the proof. LONG LIVE THE CORGI! Long live dog rescue organizations! Hurrah CorgiAid!
This t-shirt is approved by the OFFICIAL Almighty Lobster Corgi (Kiki!).
For just $20 you get a limited edition PAWESOME* Red(it) Lobster corgi t-shirt—this includes shipping! TO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! All proceeds from the t-shirt sales ($5 to $6 per shirt) go to CorgiAid, to benefit corgis in need of biscuits everywhere!!
Do it for the corgis!
PS - T-shirt sales end THIS TUESDAY AT NOON OCLOCK EASTERN!

Buy a Sparrow Project shirt for Farm Sanctuary! »
It’s called style and substance, you should cultivate both. The Sparrow Project can help, by kitting you out in one of their adorable shirts! They’ve got something like seven different designs, and the proceeds benefit organizations like Clean Ocean Action and Farm Sanctuary. Specifically, sales of the “Vegan” design go to Farm Sanctuary. Cute, right? It’s printed on American Apparel cotton, and costs $25.
They’re selling a vegan-themed tote bag to benefit Farm Sanctuary as well. It costs $18, is made of cotton canvas, and encourages people to ask you why you’re vegan. Perhaps a better approach than a Sharpied t-shirt and a massive fanny pack, but who are we to judge? No one, is the answer, especially when your Vegansaurus’ favorite tote is black canvas with this design on white.
Sparrow Media keep a lively blog focused on social justice issues, if you’re interested in that sort of thing—which, really, freedom is freedom whether it’s for humans or animals. One of their members will be in the Bay Area later in October, should anyone with retail connections like their merchandise. We are certainly looking forward to hearing more from them!
LAURA M IS THE WINNER! Girlfriend, email me and I’ll get you your shirt!
It’s a Vegansaurus giveaway, y’all!!!!
It’s a saucy red t-shirt in a women’s large (but this is American Apparel large so think, about a size 00). I got this as a gift but it doesn’t fit and I’m not planning on losing a full person anytime soon so MY REFUSING TO LOSE IS YOUR GAIN. If you’re a big fat fatty too (or a dude) (or a big fat fatty dude), you could totally cut this up and wear it as bra top or patch on your jeans or as an loincloth. Whatever, you’re gonna love it.
For a chance to win, put your age in the comment field. If you don’t know it, just put a number. ANY NUMBER. Winner will be chosen sometime next week and it’ll be totally random unless my bestie enters and then she’s totally winning. AT LEAST I DON’T LIE TO YOU!!
p.s. the shirt doesn’t smell like smoke or dog. TOO MUCH. I kid, it’s clean. ish.
