Educational Outreach

BVS does educational outreach at community Earth Day events around Boston and at the State House, at culinary expos, at children’s expos, at environmental festivals, at area college and university events, and participates in a variety of heath and green fairs, walk-a-thons, and other events.

Social Media

BVS has a Facebook page with items of interest to the local veg community, such as veg restaurant openings, organic farmers’ markets, and breaking news about health, the environment, and animals.

Ads Promoting Vegetarianism

Ad: Do it for someone you love. Tonight, make it vegetarian.
BVS runs ads promoting vegetarianism in the metro region mass transit. We do interior ads on MBTA subway cars and buses, big station platform ads, and six foot wide exterior ads on bus tails. These draw people to the How To Go Veg and other resource pages on our website.

Media Coverage of Vegetarian Issues

BVS actively seeks media coverage of vegetarian issues, and frequently serves as a resource for local, regional, and national television, radio, and print media. For example, BVS was interviewed for these two Boston Globe articles:
