  1. The new channel Planet Green launched last night (channel 172 on Cablevision; not sure where it is for you other folks), and I caught a few minutes of it here and there. In partnership with Treehugger, the channel is an exciting development in green biz: the “first and only 24-hour eco-lifestyle television network.” But as optimistic as I was about PG, I found myself wondering where it would fall on the issue of veg*nism and the environment.

    Of course, the channel’s programming includes the usual suspects—lifestyles of the rich and environmental (Hollywood Green With Maria Menounos), makeover shows (Renovation Nation, WA$TED!)—and will expand to include “reality” challenges (Battleground Earth: Ludacris Vs. Tommy Lee). But as always, the real answers lie within the cooking/dining and “information” shows. And what I saw there disappointed me. Continue Reading…

  3. You may be familiar with Boston-based Bexx as the creator of the awesome online restaurant guide, VeganBoston, but did you know she also makes books?

    In addition to an assortment of adorable journals, sketchbooks, and albums, Bexx has created two outstanding miniature books, How I Get My Protein and How I Get My Calcium. Each illustrated, handsewn book contains a short list of vegan nutrient sources, the amount of nutrient per serving, and percentage of daily value. Also included is information on how much protein or calcium the average person needs each day and a list of resources on vegan nutrition. Bexx recommends: “The next time someone asks you ‘How do you get your protein?’, suppress the urge to strangle them by handing them this cute little book!”

    Books By Bexx are sold on Etsy, Little Paper Planes, and Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe. Books by Bexx is also a member of Vegan Etsy, an etsy team made up of vegans that maintain completely vegan shops.

    Through the magic of Myspace, I sent Bexx a few questions about her bookmaking business. She was kind enough to respond. Continue Reading…

  4. Hillary Rettig

    Hillary Rettig

    This week, New Yorkers will have two chances to catch up with Hillary Rettig, author of The Lifelong Activist and The Little Guide To Beating Procrastination, Perfectionism and Blocks, a free E-book. The Boston based life coach and activist will lead workshops at NYU and The Fourth Universalist Society headquarters.

    Titled “Living a Joyful and Productive Progressive Life,” Rettig’s seminar teaches activists how to avoid burnout. It will center on what she describes as the building blocks of a happy and productive life: mission management (to figure out your authentic goals and path); time management (so you can develop a schedule that helps you focus on your goals); and fear management (so you can get past procrastination, perfectionism and blocks to success).

    Tuesday, February 19, 6:30-8pm. NYU, 60 Washington Square South, Room 405. A,B,C,D,E,F,V to West 4th Street. Hosted by NYU animal rights group SEAL and Farm Sanctuary. Free, but RSVP:

    Wednesday, February 20, 7-9pm. The Fourth Universalist Society, 160 Central Park West at 76th Street. B,C to 72nd Street. $10 suggested donation.

  5. Here’s an unconfirmed rumor we received via text message from an inside source:

    Student chefs are cooking up a three or four course gourmet (mostly vegan) brunch today at Counter. The normally pricey restaurant is charging a measly $7 for the meal. The special mid-week brunch begins at 11:30AM and should go on for a couple of hours.

    God, I hope it’s true!
