Chalking is a great way to get people’s attention and plant seeds. 

The last photo is of my first ‘chalking’ and, even tho I was scared, it was so fun to do. Shoppers were great – very open and supportive. And then a Whole Foods manager came out to tell me it was inappropriate and had two guys scrub and wash it away, lickety split.

I asked her, “What’s worse, being publicly ‘inappropriate’ for asking people in colored chalk on a sidewalk to reflect on their food choices and choose compassion, or turning a blind eye to the systematic imprisonment, torture, and violent killing of billions of animals?” She did not appreciate the inquiry, to say the least. 

I can think of so many things that are more inappropriate. Sad that they were more concerned with demolishing the message than with allowing for the conversation to be broached. 

Be daring. Go vegan.
