Earth Day 2009

For Earth Day 2009, we collaborated with the Environmental Law Society and had a table in the Donor Lobby to promote environmentally friendly and humane eating. There were vegan treats for all, including baked goods and snacks donated by Trader Joe's and the Berkeley Bowl. Nearly 80 people signed the "Pledge to Go Meatless for Earth Day" and were entered in a draw for restaurant gift certificates. 

In the evening we also had a successful screening of "Sharkwater," a great film about sharks and the threats to their survival (i.e. people.)

Thank you to everyone who helped out!
