New York, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2013
The Woodstock Fruit Festival is proud to extend an invitation to Woody Harrelson to attend the Festival this August. Harrelson will star in the new thriller movie, Now You See Me, which will be released in theaters this spring. In addition to acting, Harrelson is an ethical vegan and environmental activist. Michael Arnstein, founder of the event, shares: "PETA advocate and raw foodist Woody Harrelson is someone we greatly admire."
Harrelson has a deep interest in health and the planet. He believes that eating a vegan diet predominantly consisting of fruits and vegetables is beneficial for people and the environment. He makes an effort to educate people about how the choices that they make have an effect on the places where they live. The Woodstock Fruit Festival also promotes this message through its classes, demonstrations and lectures. It also focuses on sourcing food locally by building partnerships with co-ops and other businesses in upstate New York, where the Festival will be held. Arnstein believes that "he’s someone that belongs at the forefront of the next incarnation of health in diet, which is Fruitarianism. We have invited him to our event as a VIP to honor his work in promoting a moral, ethical and healthy diet."
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!"
