Yoga + the Animals

Join us for an afternoon with rescued farm friends at Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary in Ellicott City, Maryland (a short one-hour drive from DC) on Saturday, June 8 from 10-2.

The day’s adventure begins at 10am with tea and treats followed by a private tour of the sanctuary. Around noon we’ll roll out our yoga mats on the grass to enjoy an all-level yoga class taught by moi.

To round out the experience, you’ll be treated to a tasty homemade vegan brunch complete with cupcakes by “chef” Tim.

Your $75 ticket includes yoga, brunch, tour, and donation to benefit Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary and Pigs & Pugs Project’s micro-grant program to pig sanctuaries and pug rescues in need.

Because this is a working sanctuary, please leave your four-legged friends at home. All attendees must have their own ticket. This event is suitable for ages 14+.

Happy Earth Day {+ Discount Code}

Of course, you know EVERY day is Earth Day and that it’s those little things that make a difference. In honor of Earth Day, I’ve outlined a few of my favorites below:

  • Say “food only” when ordering takeout to avoid those soy sauce packages and plastic utensils.
  • Compost. We keep our scraps in a coffee tin and when it fills, we add them to our larger compost bin outside. Don’t have an outside? Many cities have compost drop-off spots. We only throw out trash once a week since so much ends up in the compost.
  • Tote a metal fork, metal straw, and reusable water bottle everywhere. This lets you sip your latte or nosh on your takeout without adding more plastic to the landfill.
  • Love Starbucks? Grab their reusable hot and cold cups to refill.
  • Shop sustainable fashion. See our coupon below.
  • Plant trees and a garden. Yes, windowsills count!
  • Hit the farmers’ markets with your reusable bag.
  • Eat less meat. Consider taking this week’s 7-day VegPledge.
  • Tune in to my podcast with Ashlee Piper filled with more ideas.
  • Switch to online statements, bills, and invoices.
  • Surround yourself with plants.

7-Day VegPledge

Join me (and thousands of others) by taking the 7-day VegPledge April 22-29. I love watching others reap the healthy benefits of eating more plants, saving animals, and helping the environment!

Pigs & Pugs Project is delighted to be a sponsor and to have our upcoming Pigs, Pugs, & Pinot as a featured event of VegWeek.

To help you get started, I have a few resources below. Remember, it’s practice, not perfection. Do what you can and see how it goes. You got this!

Thanks for considering the 7-day VegPledge and here’s to tasty, healthy meat-free meals! Bisous. x
