TreeHugger.com Founder Graham Hill On Benefits Of Weekday Veg Diet

Graham Hill, the hippie-raised founder of TreeHugger.com, isn’t vegetarian — well, not really.  At this year’s TED conference, Hill spoke about his controversial dietary dilemma.

“About a year ago I asked myself a question: Knowing what I know, why am I not a vegetarian?,” Hill asked. “After all, I’m one of the green guys. I grew up with hippie parents in a log cabin; I started a site called Tree Hugger. I care about this stuff. I knew that eating a mere hamburger a day could increase my risk of dying by a third. Cruelty: I knew that the 10 billion animals we raise each year for meat are raised in factory farm conditions that we, hypocritically, wouldn’t even consider for our own cats, dogs and other pets. Environmentally: meat amazingly causes more emissions that all the transportation combined…all of it. And beef production uses a hundred times the water that most vegetables do.”

And yet still, still, Graham couldn’t put down the burger. So he created his own system: Weekday Veg. The idea is that one eats “nothing with a face Monday through Friday. And then, “on the weekend, your choice.”

The outcome: Graham says he feels healthier, better about his choices and he’s even saving some moola. Not a bad combo!

This week in the veganverse IV

Wonder why everyone is so concerned with vegan underwear, hot dogs, and how we’ll celebrate Easter? Me too! It’s this week in the veganverse, round four.

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
