Notes from Vegan Outreach

Boca Campaign Update

You have really stepped up for layer hens and veganism! After last week's call to action, Boca has been flooded with feedback from consumers, and your concerns are being heard! From the ongoing negotiations with the company, headed by COK's Erica Meier:

"BOCA is committed to meeting the needs of our vegan consumers. We are actively working on this matter. While this process takes time, we will be able to share an update by March 20, 2009."

This is truly encouraging news -- and another reason to look forward to the first day of spring! For this reason, there is a temporary moratorium on the campaign. Be sure to also check out for more campaign information.

Vote for Ari!

Ari Nessel -- a longtime friend and vitally important member of Vegan Outreach -- is up for Sexiest Vegetarian Next Door. He's in the very first bracket -- be sure to vote for him today!


Product of the Week

Michael Greger, M.D., cruciferous king, offers this great news!

Every year I review the world’s scientific nutrition literature for the most groundbreaking developments and compile the most important findings into my annual "Latest in Nutrition" talk. My schedule is so tight these days, though, that I'm only able to squeeze in a few dozen talks each year, so I'm excited to announce I've started making my annual nutrition updates into DVDs!

So far I've recorded the two most recent years -- 2007 and 2008 -- of my "Latest in Nutrition" talk, and the 90-minute DVDs are now available at:

You can also order Dr. Greger's famous Maximum Nutrition DVD here.

Notes from Our Members

It was a fun day at the University of Texas, El Paso with Greg (President of El Paso Veg Society). We handed the leaflets out in front of the Student Center. Close to 100% of students who passed us took the leaflets. A faculty member returned a few minutes later asking for more booklets, stating that her students were discussing the Even If You Like Meat booklets they received and wanted to write papers on why people shouldn't eat animals.

Loren Hart leaflets one of the 2,700+ East Carolina University students he and Jon Camp reached on Feb. 19.

The pictures in your booklet made my stomach turn. I never knew anything about these matters before. After trying out an almost all-vegan lifestyle, I have more energy. My husband will never change, but I've been using vegan ground beef and chicken substitutes without him even noticing!
-ST, 2/16/09

I was so glad to be able to leaflet Miami Dade College today -- really good conversations. One vegan math professor wants to share info and leaflets in her class. Another gentleman was a meat eater but stayed talking for a while and said that he really wanted to change his diet because all the information made so much sense.
-Linda Bower, 2/23/09

We have already handed out 22,000 copies of Miksi kasvissyöjäksi [Finnish Why Vegan]. We are now preparing the third printing!
-Timo Kiviniemi, 2/23/09

The Barkus Parade (part of Carnival here in New Orleans) was doggie paradise -- the perfect day for Angus to wear the backpack with Why Vegans and Compassionate Choices. We distributed several boxes worth, and met many vegans, vegetarians, and other receptive people!

The Community College of Baltimore County, Catonsville was super valuable. Four people said they would try vegetarianism and one guy said he'd try veganism. Tons of people were asking questions and everyone was talking about animal rights.
