Thomas Edison Animal Rights tea towel

Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) was a prolific American inventor and businessman. Among his inventions were the phonograph (early record player), the motion picture camera and long-lasting electric light bulbs. He was a vegetarian (verging on vegan) for chiefly moral reasons. Edison hoped that his inventions would help humanity move onto a higher moral plane. "The machine has been human being's most effective escape from bondage," he wrote. He refused to be engaged on offensive development during World War I. As he said, "I am proud of the fact that I never invented weapons to kill". Show that your kitchen is moving in the right direction with this bold tea towel...
