Join rabble.ca in taking the Vegan Challenge during Earth Week from April 17-23.
rabble.ca staff, contributors and users are encouraged to go vegan for a week to help protect the environment, show compassion for animals and enjoy some wholesome nutritious and yummy food!
Going vegan is one of the strongest ways most of us can contribute to Earth Week and make every day Earth Day! Making your "hoofprint" smaller will reduce your ecological footstep by cutting down on your carbon footprint, diminishing pollution of air, water and land, and helping stymie the destruction of ecosystems being swallowed up to produce feed for farm animals.
This is the brainchild of
rabble intern (and vegan), Noreen Mae rabbletv curator Anita Krajnc. The link above has all sorts of tips for newbie vegans to stay healthy and on course. I will be participating in this event along with most other members of rabble's staff (including Rebecca, I think?), and probably talking about my experiences here. One challenge I foresee is that I will be travelling in the middle of the week, which may complicate things a little.
Anyway, anybody else want to give it a shot?
