Your cause is well represented by the new documentary Cowspiracy, which I was fortunate to see last night in Berkeley. It shares the most compelling reasons why we all need to stop in our tracks, in eating any animal, again. I have heard many reasons to go vegan, but this documentary puts it all together, especially with our water shortage issue, and the humane reasons as well.
I am a convert, and look forward to being affiliated with your folks! And hats off to the co-directors of this remarkable film too.
And – I just learned at my local Whole Foods store in San Ramon, a company called Hampton Creek produces Just Mayo that uses plant-based eggs (referred to in the film), and will be out soon with Just Scrambled. I look forward to the experience!
And – the timing couldn’t be better to include a FULLER reason for my community to go vegan, as my campaign launches a local contest in all 3 cities in our school district, to deal with water, energy issues and food, to counter climate change. It is called BeTheExample Contest, coordinated with local HS student clubs.
