- Vegan Entrepreneurs MeetingVegan Entrepreneurs Meeting
Time: 1:00 pm
Connie and AmyLeo, long-time animal advocates and ARC members are looking to build a Vegan Services Collective and Directory. Connie is an independent realtor and AmyLeo is a vegan chef, instructor, and coach. What better way to start than to join them on Saturday, August 2 from 1:00-3:00pm at the ARC office/Ethique Nouveau, 317 W 48th St. in Minneapolis. If you are a vegan and have a business or service that you would like to promote this is for you. We will take a moment to introduce ourselves and our businesses and then discuss how we can best support our fellow vegans by purchasing their goods and services. The long-term goal is to create a directory (e-directory and possibly a paper directory). This will be a joint venture and so we are (also) seeking individuals who are interested in and have the appropriate skills to move this project forward. Feel free to bring a vegan snack to share with others. RSVP at Minneapolis Vegan Meetup: http://www.meetup.com/vegan-415/ at 1:00 pm

Everyday People Goes Fur-free!
Customers coming in to one of their stores with fur items to sell are encouraged to donate the items to ARC’s Cuddle Coats program. The fur provides a nurturing and comforting environment for injured and orphaned wild animals while they are rehabilitated and prepared for release back into the wild. “Knowing that we have a place that will find a use for the items helps”, says Kitty. She adds that for the most part, customers have been very understanding about the policy and have been willing to donate their items to Cuddle Coats once they learn about the good their fur items can do.
ARC applauds Everyday People’s commitment to helping animals by taking a stand against fur. Disappointingly, other vintage and second-hand stores in town still buy and sell fur, so we hope they will follow Everyday People’s example of putting ethics ahead of profits.
Everyday People Clothing Exchange has stores in Dinkytown, Uptown and St. Paul near Selby and Snelling. They feature a range of vintage fashions and accessories as well as newer clothing styles for men and women. Stop in for some great bargains and thank them for going fur-free!
