Three point one million dollars was raised at Wednesday night’s Natural Resources Defense Council gala. Many green celebs were in attendance, helping to roast honoree and Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter.

Vanity Fair, is in fact, planning their second green issue for May. (Wow, they have a lot of special issues going on. In July, Bono will serve as the Guest Editor of the Africa issue). Leonardo DiCaprio, Glenn Close, Bette Midler, Kevin Bacon, and John Mellencamp (among many others) were all on hand to praise Carter’s greenness.

From the article,

Robert Kennedy Jr. said some eco-warriors might doubt the seriousness of the oh-so-social Carter.

Kennedy insisted, “He does love green stuff – especially money.” But, seriously, Kennedy hailed Carter for recasting Vanity Fair as “one of the most important information forums in our country.”

Carter finished it all up with a stab at Bush and a commitment to protect the earth from “polluters and, sadly, our own federal government.”

Sounds like a fun filled evening…and $3.1 million – not too shabby.

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
