Our food choices play a significant role, helping to solve some of our societies most urgent problems, like marine ecosystem collapse, climate change, poor human health and global violence.
Eating animal foods is the elephant in our living room that we all pretend not to see when discussing how we can change the world for the better.
On August 31st, 2012, a group of extreme SUP paddlers will circumnavigate 72 miles of Lake Tahoe in one day—paddling all day and all night—to promote the Vegan 1 Day Project. They hope to garner international attention from this challenge to encourage everyone to adopt a vegan diet for at least one day out of the year.
Will you join us by pledging to eat vegan for just one day, 31 August 2012? Can you help spread the word in your community?

John Merryfield lives in Lake Tahoe, Ca. and Los Barriles, Baja, Mexico with his wife Carol and works as a painting contractor.

He is an avid surfer, kite surfer, stand up paddler, paraglider pilot and a published haiku poet. (Author's note... I also have known John since our days in Ms. O'Brien's kindergarten class. No, he was not vegan or did he write haiku at that point in time!)
Have A Great Day
