The Woodstock Fruit Festival is proud to extend an invitation to Alicia Silverstone to attend the Festival this August. Silverstone may best be known for her role in the movie ‘Clueless’, but she is also known for being a vegan who is committed to creating awareness around animal and environmental issues. Michael Arnstein, founder of the Festival, shares ‘Alicia Silverstone is synonymous in Hollywood for beauty, intelligence and grace. She is a leader in much more than big movie roles. We believe that she is a leader in setting the example for better health through diet and compassion for other creatures we share the world with.’ Arnstein believes that Silverstone and the Woodstock Fruit Festival promote the same message of helping to educate people about making healthy food choices and being more conscious of the impact that they have on Earth.
Silverstone became a vegan after educating herself from factory farming documentaries, and her interest in educating people about how their daily food choices affect other creatures continued from there. She started a website called The Kind Life that helps inform the public about animal rights and environmental issues, provides recipes for meals and tips for reducing one’s impact on the planet. Silverstone has realized the benefits of following a vegan lifestyle and wants to help others become healthier. The Festival also has the same goal by educating the public through classes, lectures and discussions. Arnstein states ‘she would be an incredibly welcomed attendee at the Festival and we hope that she will accept our invitation.’
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 who is an 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!’
