New products

Image of the Tofu Monster Bag.During the last month we had a whole bunch of new stuff filling the shelves of our shop. We now have caps with a neatly printed vegan flower on them, our tofu monster is now frightening tofu makers around the world on a dark purple bag and as an ecological, healthy and money-saving alternative to sanitary pads and tampons we now offer the MeLuna, a menstrual cup available in different sizes and colors. Furthermore we got plenty new stickers, for example this social network-style action sticker to be spread – not only in your room! Also, gone for a long time and now back in stock, mugs! They really make the soy milk taste delicious 😉

New as well – crimethinc’s latest book Work analyzes our relationship to work, why it seems that we work more than ever and why we still end up poorer and our bosses richer. The book joins the rest of our crimethinc literature family, such as Recipes for Disaster, Evasion, Expect Resistance, Days of War, Nights of Love, Off the map and the rolling thunder magazine.

Stalls and Shirts

Hello hello.

We just came back from our 4 day trip to Fluff Fest in Czech Republic. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and had a little chat with us. We also had an open-air screening of EDGE with about 350 people on Sunday night which was really amazing.

The weekend before we went to the Veggie Street Day in Stuttgart, Germany. Besides bands, food, and information stalls there was a fashion show with roots of compassion apparel et al. The whole event was a huge success since a lot of passers-by seemed to be really interested in vegan food and animal rights. In two weeks, on August 14th, we’ll be at the Veggie Street Day in Dortmund with a stall.

It was your decision: The “We heart the ALF” Shirt came off as the odds-on winner of the vote we started 2 weeks ago!

And finally, we have the Tofu-Monster Shirt in all sizes back in stock. The new shirt is a bit shorter and has a slightly different shade of color than the old one.

Sincerely yours and rock on
