Celebrate Earth Day on your plate with us this year with a vegan brunch-style potluck. We'll have a waffle bar set up, with coffee, tea and juice. Please bring a plant-based dish to share. Kids and guests are welcome.
*a vegan dish to share (brunch ideas include; tofu scrambles, roasted potatoes or veggies, spring salads, fresh fruit, muffins...)
*your own plate, eating utensils, and cup (to cut down on cost and waste)
Hope to see you!
Why Vegan is the new "GREEN":
"Studies indicate that a varied vegan diet requires about a third of the land needed for conventional Western diets. Quite simply, we do not have enough land to feed everyone on an animal-based diet." Read more
"Overgrazing is blamed for 35 per cent of soil degradation, deforestation for 30 per cent and agriculture for 27 per cent. These main causes are directly or indirectly related to the consumption of animal products." Read more
"The expansion of agricultural land accounts for more than 60 per cent of worldwide deforestation. Most of this land is used to graze beef cattle." Read more
"The wholesale destruction of forest environments to provide grazing land for cattle and to grow feed for livestock contributes direct to loss of biodiversity." Read more
"Although statistics vary, it is safe to say that it takes at least three times the amount of water to feed a meat eater compared with that used to feed a vegan." Read more
"By stopping eating fish – be it farmed or wild-caught – we can reverse the destruction of ocean environments." Read more
“The livestock sector is a major player, responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions measured in CO2 equivalent. This is a higher share than transport.” Read more
"The consumption of animal products contributes to global warming, pollution, water scarcity, land degradation, deforestation and loss of biodiversity – in other words, all the major environmental problems." Read more
