Joining Forces on Earth Day 2011: Pumping (Waffle) Iron & Pumping Up Vegan Books

All right, so I’m not as “ripped” as serious vegan bodybuilders. I accept that. However, I still keep myself in decent shape by running and pumping iron regularly. Oh, and there’s that plant-based diet thing.

The Global Vegan Waffle Party recognizes the links between kindness, health, and ecological sustainability, all of which vegan practices help to address. As we’ve emphasized through prior years’ themes, certain aspects of our consumption practices, such as our use of other animals, are often understated in the environmental equation.

For these reasons, I was especially excited to hear that Robert Cheeke had been planning to focus some marketing endeavors for his Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness around Earth Day 2011, April 22. The last I heard, he was  asking others to buy his book that weekend, helping to boost it to the top of the Amazon charts. This, in turn, will help others to discover his work. That’s triply cool, because it really links kindness, health, and sustainability.

We would like to join Robert (and any other authors who may be doing something similar) in efforts to pump up veganism on Earth Day. What better way to do this than with a giveaway!

Here’s how this one will work: If you buy a copy of any vegan-related book from April 22-24, 2011, from any website or bookstore, simply comment with the title(s) below this post for a chance to win one of two copies of The Global Vegan Waffle Cookbook. (You can choose between paperback or ebook format.) Important catch: At least 20 different people must respond for the giveaway to occur, so spread the word!

Should you end up with two copies of the GVWC, you’ll have one to give away to a friend or relative!

Comments must be posted by noon Eastern (GMT -4) on April 25, and the winner will be announced here by the following day.

    Although we didn’t get the number of responses for the giveaway as advertised (Earth Day weekend had an impressive amt. of internet activity), I decided to flip a coin and give one of you an ebook of the Global Vegan Waffle Cookbook. Congrats to Danielle; I’ll be in touch shortly!
