Veg Wisdom

Cruelty to animals can become violence to humans. - Ali MacGraw

Veg Wisdom

In all the round world of Utopia there is no meat. There used to be, but now we cannot stand the thought of slaughterhouses. And it is impossible to find anyone who will hew a dead ox or pig. I can still remember as a boy the rejoicings over the closing of the last slaughterhouse. - H. G. Wells (1866-1946), A Modern Utopia

I grew up in cattle country---that's why I became a vegetarian. Meat stinks. For the animals, the environment, and your health. - k.d. lang

Eugene > EVEN Service Directory

EVEN Service Directory

Veg*ns like to patronize other veg*ns. When we pay for products or services, we feel better knowing our money will more likely buy a head of lettuce or a bunch of grapes than a t-bone steak or a lamb chop. Voting with our dollars is (apparently!) the best way we can get our votes to count. Please patronize these vegans, vegetarians and veg-owned businesses for the fine products, services and food they offer, and sleep better tonight knowing you made the world a little more peaceful.

This directory is a free service provided by EVEN to veg*ns, for veg*ns.

Buddhist meditation (Vipassana/Thich Nhat Hanh tradition), sustainable and simple living, earth-friendly technologies, vegan lifestyle. Classes, retreats, tours, workshops, personal consulting, and lectures.

I sell custom travel bikes for Bike Friday, whose owners (and most of the staff) are veg*. I have the resources there to work on any bike problem, including framework. I'll also be happy to sell you one of our beautiful bicycles, if you are so inclined.

I'm an ex-messenger and an everyday commuter, my daughter and I often ride to school, and I often enjoy a tandem ride with my wife. So if you have any questions about bicycling, I'd be more than happy to answer them.
Ride on!
