ModCloth, The North Face in the Running for peta2 Award Companies Are Making the Smart Decision to Meet Young People's Fast-Growing Demand for Stylish and Cruelty-Free Vegan Apparel Contact: Sophia Charchuk 202-483-7382 Los Angeles – Businesses everywhere are responding to consumer demand—driven largely by young people—to drop fur, leather, down, and other products that cause animal suffering. That’s why peta2, PETA’s youth division, has nominated 16 companies for the ninth-annual Libby Awards in four apparel-related categories. “Libby” is for “liberation”—as in animal liberation. Visitors to peta2.com can cast their votes to help peta2 decide whom it should choose as the Libby Award winners and enter for a chance to win a giant Libby prize pack filled with goodies from last year’s winners, including a cookbook, personal-care products, and vegan treats.
This year’s nominees include cold-weather apparel leaders The North Face, nominated for a Best Vegan Makeover award for its revolutionary, down-free ThermoBall™ line, which is essential for people who refuse to let the cold cruelty of down permeate their hearts. The company will get a run for its money from ModCloth’s From Head to Moto Shorts, which offer fashionistas the bad-girl look of leather without the bloody violence of the leather industry.
“Today’s young people want their favorite brands to reflect their values as well as their sense of style,” says PETA Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns Marta Holmberg. “All of peta2’s nominees are winners because they’re inspiring young people across the country to get active for animals every chance they get.”
Other Libby Award categories include Best Use of Internet Stardom for Animals, Best Vegan Makeover, and Best New Vegan Food Item. Voting ends on December 12 at 12 p.m. EST. Winners will be chosen by peta2—whose motto reads, “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way”—based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced on December 16. See the full contest details here.

When the state failed to correctly establish educational and training places, people from industries and commerce came forward and occupy the place and now we have got better schools, colleges and training institutions. Now the people having faith in religions are facing some difficulties and therefore, time has come when people from industry and commerce come forward and occupy religious places so that these institutions too must run properly. When religious places too shall run by these institutions, we shall be having complete accounts, issue of receipts, auditing work and the people for services shall be recruited on merits and there shall be no family rule over these institutions. The learned people shall be telling us things which are acceptable by the modern society and a sense of unity shall come into being. The present system when people with low education are occupying these institutions, the people are learning fundamentalism, terrorism and rioting from these institutions and so many new sects are being established and our society shall be facing more divisions.
