No Meat March Webinar
Join us for a special LIVE WEBINAR on Thursday, March 6, 2014 hosted by Executive Director of The Girls Gone Green and No Meat March organizer, Julie Watkins.
Don't miss your chance to hear how you can get the most out of your No Meat March journey! All you need in order to attend this session is a computer or tablet and a quiet spot. The presentation is absolutely FREE, but space is limited so sign up quickly.
Julie will cover 4 main ways to have a successful No Meat March which will be broken into these topics:
Hang Up The Foam:
The Girls Gone Green is currently reaching out to the restaurant industry in hopes of working together to eliminate EPS foam (Styrofoam) due to its high probability of leaking known carcinogens into the food and harmful toxins into the environment.
Hang Up the Foam’s mission is to encourage the use of eco-friendly alternative to EPS in the food industry, starting with Jacksonville Beaches. Our goal is to reduce human health risks, protect our wildlife, clean our beaches, and ultimately eliminate the use of foam in the boxing, preparing, and serving of food.
Eco-Shirts for Good:
We currently have shirts on sale to help raise funds for The Girls Gone Green. They are made from organic and recycled materials with eco-friendly inks by a company using 100% wind power! As a bonus, you'll receive a FREE vegan decal hand-picked by one of The Girls Gone Green. Help out our cause by purchasing one or two of our super-soft shirts.
Delicacies of Despair:
Delicacies of Despair is a campaign to target two of the cruelest foods ever dreamt up by man - Veal and Foie Gras. The Girls Gone Green would like to see an end to both of these dishes in Northeast Florida. Our position is to not promote any restaurant on VegJax.com that continues to serve such cruel options. We hope this will encourage restaurants to find alternatives to these foods, i.e. FAUX GRAS. Your help is vital to its success, so please get involved!
Jacksonville's Veg-Friendly Dining Guide:
We know it can be hard to eat out when you’re trying to be good to your body, the environment and of course animals, but since The Girls Gone Green love to eat - we compiled an extensive list of veg-friendly meals in a not-so-veg-friendly town (not one dedicated veg-friendly restaurant...yet). The guide is broken down by area so no matter where you are, you'll be able to find a delicious, veg-friendly meal on-the-go.
No Meat March 2014:
We invite you to take the No Meat March pledge and try going meat-free for 31 days. It's a great way to get community support on something you have been probably wanting to do on your own. All month long we offer events, resources and a daily email with tips and recipes. Test yourself, experiment with your diet, discover how you feel and open yourself up to a new way of looking at food and its impacts on your body. What do you have to lose?
GGG Recipe Collection:
Check out our wide assortment of vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free and delicious recipes! Hopefully our collection will keep you inspired and full. Here we cover all of your needs for quick and easy recipes that don't skimp on flavor and satisfaction. We have recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks, soups, brunch and even baby to dog food (why not, they deserve healthy choices, too). Check back often, we know at least one of these recipes will speak to you to want to prepare and share!
