Are you lively, energetic, full of vim and vigor, performing at your optimum level of health or would you like to learn more about this? How to be more optimistic, sympathetic

Yes, I am the epitome of "lively, energetic, full of vim and vigor ...."

How enthusiastic are you? Do you think about exciting events that you can plan and make happen, creating a new reality and better equality, kindness to animals?

Absolutely - a way of life for me!

When was the last time you stopped to think about how happy you were and could you improve your mood? More compassionate?

I ponder this and more regularly.

Why would you imagine that not all vegan products could be considered Kosher or organic cruelty free, non GMO non-irradiated, and would you like to see the Kosher Vegan symbol/label?

Kosher requires inspection of sources, facilities, etc. It is quite intensive. Of course, a Kosher Vegan symbol/label would be great, but it would likely be cost prohibitive. There are, though, various levels of kosher certification, but some are relatively meaningless. To truly be kosher certified, a restaurant, for instance, can not be open on Shabbat as the certifying rabbi needs to be able to inspect the facility during any hours of operation.

Which ethical and ecological practices have recently been adopted into law in what parts of the world, and what more rules would you like to see enacted in more places?

No answer yet

Introduction

Looking forward to meeting more similarly conscious friends - vegan for over 30 years, Trustee of American Vegan Society for over 25 years - run Vegan Foodies Meetup, VegKids.org for kids on weekends, VeganCamp.org during vacations, and much more!
