Spring issue of Organic Style Magazine
Organic Style Ltd.
The spring issue of the Organic Style magazine highlights visionaries who have taken courageous, inspiring action in pursuit of humanitarianism and environmental justice. The cover story features Julia Butterfly Hill who lived - for 738 days - in an ancient redwood tree to save it from the lumber mill. Now, Ms. Hill's non-profit Engage Network works with groups across the nation on building community and undertaking social and environmental action, to help them, as Hill says, "at finding their own trees."
Earth Day Pioneer Denis Hayes, who helped launch the celebration, weighs in on today's environmental movement, from the phony to the practical to the world-changing. If there's a world record for hugging, surely it's held by Amma ("Mother"), the Indian-born spiritual teacher who once hugged 45,000 people in a 21-hour marathon and who is reported to have embraced more than 27 million people around the world. Best-selling co-author Rory Freeman (Skinny Bitch and the cookbook Skinny Bitch in the Kitch) owes a lot-vibrant health and a clearer conscience-to vegetarian living.
