There are many events in the San Francisco Bay Area that take place in honor of Earth Day, but none that focus specifically on the positive effects of veganism on the environment. So come celebrate Vegan Earth Day with us on Friday April 22nd at 7pm on the UC Berkeley Campus (exact location TBA).
Vegan Earth Day presents a new tradition that celebrates the link between veganism and a healthy environment. Adopting a vegan lifestyle is the soundest way to make a positive impact on animals and the environment, but this event will explore reasons and ways to take that commitment even further.
During the event, we will be screening award-winning feature documentary, "Call of Life, Facing the Mass Extinction" by Species Alliances. The film investigates the growing threat to Earth's life support systems as a result of dwindling biodiversity. To find out more about this provocative documentary, and to see the trailer, visit: http://www.calloflife.org.
Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring experts in vegan lifestyle and nutrition, and environmentalism. The admission also includes a delicious, vegan, catered reception sponsored by Verite Catering, which specializes in plant-based cuisine, following the panel.
Vegan Earth Day 2011 is organized by Karine Brighten Events, a full service event-planning firm specializing in eco-friendly events and is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Organization for Animal Advocacy (BOAA). For more information, email Karine [at] kbrightenevents.com.
