Local Organizations: Earthsave
Category : Uncategorized
Another local organization worth knowing about is Earthsave Canada:
Earthsave Canada is a non-profit, educational organization promoting awareness of the environmental, ethical and health consequences of our food choices. We advocate the move towards a plant-based diet for environmental sustainability, better health, and compassion toward non-human animals.
Earthsave is an organization originally founded in the United States by John Robbins after the publication of his groundbreaking bestseller Diet for a New America.
Earthsave hosts potlucks and dine-outs, as well as holding the annual “Taste of Health” vegetarian food fair.
Their email newsletter almost always contains links to useful articles and information, and their print newsletter (sent out to members) has some really well-written articles by a number of smart people.
They also produce a vegetarian directory for the Vancouver area, which is also available online.
If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of a vegetarian or vegan diet, or a looking for support in your transition to a plant-based diet, Earthsave might be just the group you are looking for.
