People everywhere celebrated Earth Day and in NYC many of us took in the New York Green Festival.
Earth Balance sponsored a panel discussion with a diverse group of experts on plant-based living. Coming from a vast array of areas of expertise, the talk was inspiring and rich with facts, stats, and information. The structured Q & A format, hosted by Jeff Golfman of TheCoolVegetarian.com, made for a well-organized presentation.
From left to right, the panel of experts are:
Marisa Miller Wolfson — Filmmaker, Vegucated
Alex Jamieson — Author and founder of Delicious Vitality
Victoria Moran — Author, Main Street Vegan
Jeffrey Smith – Author and Anti-GMO Activist, Institute for Responsible Technology
Bart Polenza — Co-founder of Candle 79, one of the top organic vegan restaurants in the country
Tara Stiles — Author, Yoga and Nutrition Expert
They started out talking about trends in plant-based diet and lifestyle and why it’s catching on for more and more people. Here’s the first in the series of videos, soon to follow.
I’ll have more posts on this and interviews to share with you over the next few days.
How was your Earth Day? What did you do to celebrate? Any Earth Day resolutions?
