All Things Vegan ~ Show Notes ~ May 8, 2012

Ruby Roth on “Vegan is Love” haters; Banish bad moods with “The Antidote for Ego” vegan aromatherapy sprays

In today’s show, we talk with author and artist Ruby Roth, about the controversy surrounding the publication of her children’s book, “Vegan is Love.” Later in the show, find out how to combat your bad moods with vegan aromatherapy sprays from The Antidote for Ego founder Heidi Rettig. Then join us as we analyze the latest News from the Vegan Frontier, including checking in on the damage that the government’s inappropriately named “Wildlife Services” is continuing to inflict on our nation’s wildlife, companion animals, and the environment.

And, as always, we’ll let you know about vegan related happenings in and around Central Oregon, and more!
