    Remember when Vegan Porn was shut down to make way for Taste Better? Well Taste Better itself has since gone dormant, but impersario Jason “Herman Thrust” Doucette just launched Barnivore, a site dedicated to tracking vegan alcoholic beverages, “with over 400 companies listed, as checked and double checked by people just like you.” Pretty awesome!! (But of course as sponsors of Vegan Drinks, we would say that!)

    We’ve added Barnivore to the Alcoholic Beverages section of our link directory.

    (PS: If you’re drinking in Portland, Oregon (like I have been lately) don’t miss the awesomeness at Bye and Bye and the Someday Lounge. I sure wish New York had vegan bar food like these places!)

    (PPS: Speaking of Portland, drinking, and things ending in “-ivore”, check out the new blog from Herbivore’s Joshivore, Vegan Metal Bike Dad Punk Blog!)

  2. Elle's Third Annual Green Issue

    Elle’s Third Annual Green Issue

    Now that “green” is mainstream, every May many publications roll out their Green Issues. It almost seems as if green is the new black, which has its pros and cons. Overall, Elle‘s third annual Green Issue was a hit with me. Additionally, thanks to Aveeno Active Naturals, the entire issue was printed on 10% post-consumer recycled paper. Corporate America, can we see that more often, please?

    What I loved:
    Guest editor Laurie David‘s poignant message about making “global warming the reason you pull the lever at the polls in November.” Their “Green Stars” article (pg. 210), featuring the best natural beauty products out now. Many are organic and vegan. Too many to list here, but if you’re a product junkie, watch out! “Big Gulp” (pg. 232) covers the growing interest in cleansing with juice fasting (aka juice feasting). Their 2008 Green Awards (pg. 252), noting the philanthropic and eco-conscious projects of Brad, Stella (and Sir Paul McCartney for making her), Cate Blanchett, Fiji water, those Google guys and NYC’s local meteorologist Sam Champion. The Madonna cover story (pg. 279), and her work with the HIV-afflicted in Malawi.

    What I loathed:
    “Beauty And The Beast” (pg. 245) was a major let-down for any “green” issue. The article covers “Beast,” a popular restaurant in Portland, Oregon, where allegedly the chef “has found an elegant, dare we say feminine, solution to the ethical eater’s dilemma: how to eat pig without being one.” Umm… excuse me darlings, but ethical eaters and anyone claiming to be an environmentalist doesn’t do animals. Period.

    The June issue of Elle is already on newsstands. The subject of being green is not in the press as much now that Earth Day has passed and we’re halfway through May. I still continue hoping this green thing continues gaining steam so that we don’t have to wait until May for the media to note more ways to save the day.

  3. Nothing screams cross country road trip like an animal rights conference organized by the kick-ass vegan businesses and non-profits Food Fight Grocery, Herbivore, No Compromise, and Vegans for Animal Advocacy. So I’m ready to hop on the Greyhound bus ride of my life to make it out to the Let Live Northwest Animal Rights Conference, which is taking place June 27th to June 29th on the Portland State University campus.

    Billed as a grassroots conference, Let Live aims to create an “open, respectful, and friendly environment that will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn skills and strategies to become better advocates for the animals, no matter ones experience level in activism.” The cost of attendance is a suggested donation of $10 (or more, if you can swing it).

    Visit (and RSS) the website for information on registering or becoming a sponsor, and to watch the speaker schedule grow. Oh yeah, book your train, plane, or bus tickets early too!
