Two very powerful and eco-friendly men are embarking on a new journey and taking their resources to an entirely new level. Former President Bill Clinton and Richard Branson have joined forces in helping the Haiti Forest Initiative.

Last Sunday, Clinton, Branson and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, announced their new social and environmental goal. The Haiti Forest Initiative’s mission is to solve social and environmental problems throughout Haiti. It aims to do just that by bringing sustainable, productive and socially responsible forests to the country.

“I am pleased that my Foundation is working with Yunus Social Business and Virgin Unite,” Clinton said. “Through this partnership, we hope to create a replicable model for programs that demonstrate long-term, positive social and environmental impact as well as economic benefits across Haiti.”

The project will not only bring forests to Haiti – the country lost most of its forests over the last half-century – it will provide affordable food, timber and most importantly employment for residents.

The initiative wishes to accomplish four main goals including the re-forestation of Haiti; providing sustainable livelihoods to farmers; helping mitigate Haiti’s dependency on food imports; and identifying alternative fuel sources to reduce usage of charcoal.

“This project will create much-needed economic opportunities for many and is wonderful way to do something good for our planet and the people of Haiti,” Branson said.

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
