R.I.P. Donald Watson (1910-2005)

donald-watson-vegan-society.jpgAs living beings, what we eat is of the utmost importance to ourselves, but as part of the great ecosystem that is the Earth, it is also very important to nature and it counts for a great portion of our ecological footprint. For these reasons and more, we want to pay a small tribute to the late Donald Watson. He founded The Vegan Society in 1944 (with Elsie Shrigley) and invented the word "vegan". Random thought read somewhere else online: "He outlived Robert Atkins." ::The Vegan Society, ::So You're an Environmentalist; Why Are You Still Eating Meat?, ::Veganism at Wikipedia, via ::Vegan Porn (no actual porno, don't worry - and don't be disappointed)
