New York, NY (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
The Woodstock Fruit Festival is proud to extend an invitation to John Mackey to attend the Festival this August. Michael Arnstein, founder of the event, recalls 'I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Mackey at a recent book signing for his new book Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business.' Arnstein's vision of promoting a healthy lifestyle through a raw food diet can be supported by Whole Food's mission to provide quality fruits and vegetables in their stores.
Mackey, who is known for following a plant-based diet, brought the natural foods movement into mainstream America. In doing so, he created awareness around the importance of having quality produce available to consumers. Arnstein is in alignment with Mackey's endeavor to educate people about living consciously and healthfully: 'In support of his efforts to promote veganism, we would like to invite Mr. Mackey to attend our week-long event celebrating the original whole-foods: fruits and vegetables.'
Mackey's drive for social innovation and environmental sustainabilty paved the way for positive change, just as the Woodstock Fruit Festival is doing each year. People benefit from this change and are able to make smarter choices about their food and other products. These types of efforts will benefit communities for years to come.
The Woodstock Fruit Festival strives to address the many health advantages of eating fruit-based; as well as environmental benefits. The festival strongly believes that one of the best things you can do for your own health and the health of the Planet is to eat more fruit!
Some of the speakers for the 2013 festival include well known raw vegan athletes, and health pioneers. Best-selling health author Dr. Douglas N. Graham; champion trail runner Tim Van Orden; founders of one of the popular raw food websites 30BananasADay.com; YouTube favorite Dan ‘The Man’ McDonald, Tony Wright; author in the evolutionary scientific community; internationally-published fruitarian author Anne Osborne; and expert on children’s diet and nutrition Karen Ranzi.
Festival speaker and 30+ year veteran fruitarian gymnast Robert Lockhart, says
"We live in a world where the human form is taking on ever-increasing dimensions; and obesity, heart disease and cancer rates are growing at alarming rates, the need for a healthy, ethical, and sustainable diet has never been higher. If you want to die young, but as late as possible, embrace the Fruitarian Lifestyle!”
