I moved to a state where, legally, only a back license plate need be on the car. That means the spot for my front plate is open, ready and willing to take on whatever I'd like to hang.



So... I thought I'd customize my own "veg" or "eco-friendly" plate. I want something nice... not militant... The site I'm going to use has lots of choices for graphics: animals, paw prints, etc.



Any ideas for a catchphrase that works? Would prefer to stay away from the basic "Go Veg" or "Veggie" if possible. Something creative but not crazy...



Thoughts?

Have you seen the Chik-Fil-A ads where the cows say "Eat more chikin"



You could do one with cute animals that says "Eat more veggies!"

"VEG-HEAD"

"FRUIT FIEND"

"BROCCOLI"

"I (HEART)______" fill in the blank

"ARTICHOKE"

"GUACAMOLE"



I know these aren't very exciting. maybe they'll spark an idea for you or someone else.

"if it grows from the ground - chow it down." with maybe some veggies, if you've got space.

I just saw a license plate here in Syracuse, NY that said 'Go Vegan'. It made me question the use of the word vegan for a good 15 minutes. 'Go' as in the hardcore bands version of funks 'hit it'? 'Go' as in 'you'd best do as I say'? 'Go' as in move forward? 'Go' because it's a vehicle (both meanings) of veganism? 'Go' as in a 'you go girl' type of comment?



Either way, seeing 'Go Vegan' spray painted on roadsides, buildings, and elsewhere makes me a little hesitant to use that phrase. People don't like being told what to do, so the only ones that would appreciate that phrase would be those who are sympathetic already.



If you want to be an influence, I'd suggest visuals over words. Maybe just a cartoon cow head with a smile and a flower in her mouth?



Oh, and the 'Go Vegan' vehicle was a SUV... so much for environmental concerns! Thought it funny...

I would just use "Go Vegan". It states exactly what you want. IT's not militant, it's not offensive or rude, it's just a friendly statement.

Hmm, when we had a minivan I wanted to get plates that said, "VEGIVAN" but we never did.

"Call me VEG"

"Let's VEG"

How about a play on "Milk does the body good"? Maybe "Vegetarianism does the planet good".
