speaking of veganism.........

 ............. (here's a post i did on my other blog about bill clinton becoming vegan (cool!)

here's another issue i'd like to talk about. people getting feather hair extensions. perhaps they don't know animals get TORTURED for this. there is ABSOLUTELY NO NEED for it either. if you want feather extensions, you can get a VERY COOL VEGAN version.

here are a few places you can shop:

the bead giant on etsy


montabahn on etsy (by the way, i ordered from this shop) pic from montabahn etsy shop linked above - these are THE faux feathers i ordered by the way

here's some information you just might want to read BEFORE buying REAL FEATHER hair extensions:

Vegan Uncensored: Out With The Feather Hair Extensions!

We’ve all seen them: the brightly colored hair feathers dawning heads of sorority girls, Ke$has and Steven Tylers everywhere. It’s unclear how these ridiculous hair accessories became so popular, but it IS clear that they come at the price of lives. According, “at least one farm in Western Colorado is now killing up to 1,500 roosters per week just for their backside “saddle” feathers.” There are many accessory- and clothing-related items that are less than – um – compassionate, but when new ones emerge it’s a good opportunity for us to look, as a society, at how we use and abuse animal for the sake of something as frivolous as fashion.
The attention that has been paid to the recent use of feather hair extensions has brought focus to another use for rooster feathers, which is equally lame: fishing lures. That’s right, look at the big picture: thousands of roosters are killed weekly for their use in fishing lures and hair accessories! ..............
