BVS does educational outreach at community events around Boston and beyond. We do information tables at events at the State House, at culinary expos, at children’s expos, at environmental festivals, at college and university events, and at Earth Day festivals. BVS participates in a variety of heath and green fairs, walk-a-thons, fund-raiser fairs for animal charities, and other events.
BVS has a Facebook page with items of interest to the local veg community, such as veg restaurant openings, and relevant breaking local and national news about health, the environment, and animals.
Ads Promoting Vegetarianism
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 Boston Globe articles:
- It’s the ‘Year of the Vegan’ so here are the basics
- This vegan ‘meat’ is impossibly popular
- With more menus going meatless, could the future of dining be on course for change?
- Peter Singer, a foremost philosopher on animal rights, is featured speaker at annual Boston Veg Food Fest
- NYC-based vegan pizzeria Double Zero to open on Newbury Street
