Oprah and Veganist author Kathy FrestonOprah And 378 Of Her Staff Go Vegan For A Week

Oprah recently challenged her staff to join her and voluntarily go vegan for one week. 378 Harpo Production employees agreed to the challenge and Oprah dedicated an episode of her show to the results, so we had an Oprah watching party!

About 75 delighted IDA and PETA employees, supporters, and other vegans packed into Harvey’s Bar in San Francisco to watch Oprah on big screen TVs. Oprah said that she is now “veganish” and will continue to lean in this direction. She is implementing Meat-Free Mondays in the cafeterias at Harpo Productions as well as ensuring that a vegan option is always available. IDA thanks Oprah for bringing veganism to the mainstream, exposing the graphic cruelty of the slaughterhouse, and showing people that there is a healthy and compassionate way to live and eat.

The animals were so thrilled with the water available to them that it seemed like a wonderful Stray dogs enjoying water thanks to IDA India Water Bowl Projectidea to continue.
