If you’re a lean, mean greenie machine, then you’ve likely seen the acronym ‘LOHAS’ (an industry segment that stands for Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) floating around the ecosphere, but perhaps you haven’t quite yet gotten around to investigating what it’s all about.

Well, you’ll have a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the LOHAS folks when their 2010 Forum sets up shop in Boulder, Colorado this upcoming June 23 – June 25, 2010.

Anyone interested in pursuing a sustainable, healthy, planet-friendly lifestyle or exploring the opportunities that this $209 billion market sector has to offer won’t want to miss this cool green event which is bigger and better than ever before.

Ecorazzi is a proud media partner of LOHAS because they mirror our personal mission statement to spread the good green word to everyone as they tread along the journey of life.

Including categories such as personal health, natural lifestyles, green building, alternative transportation, eco-tourism and alternative energy, the mission of the LOHAS Forum is to become an educational resource for consumers and business owners who want to be on the pulse of services and products that respect the needs of Mother Nature.

Now more than ever, it is imperative that as responsible planetary citizens, we consider how to tread as lightly as possible in the pursuit of business success, keeping social and environmental awareness as much a part of our consciousness as profit.

No matter what shade of green you may be, the LOHAS Forum offers something for everyone, including attendance by the top green vendors in the industry such as Ode and Mother Jones magazines, 1% for the Planet, and Chico Bags.

Beyond the more than 500 vendors attending, the event is also showcasing some really fantastic presentations by the likes of Paula Dupre Pesmen (Executive Director/Producer of the Oscar winning documentary The Cove), Mick Bremans (the CEO of the trailblazing phosphate-free cleaning product line Ecover), Stephanie Owens (an Environmental Protection Agency representative) and Joel Makower (prolific author and 20 year veteran of sustainable business endeavors such as GreenBiz and Climate Counts board member).

Be sure to check out the LOHAS Forum, whether via Twitter, Facebook or in person at the event, and don’t forget to say hi!

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.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
