#DoGoodBeGreen Conference Round-Up

It was a beautiful Saturday morning for LOVE GOODLY’s Do Good. Be Green. conference. We had a great turnout — from bloggers to brands, a few guests even flew in from as far away as Canada! A community gathered to celebrate and get educated about a cruelty-free and eco-lifestyle.

Here are a few of the moments captured by Alvin Manuel Photography and his team. You can view more photos on our Facebook page here.

Tuesdaynights LOVE

I’m already a mom, but I don’t know that I’ve ever been prouder than a few weeks ago, when we beta-launched LOVE GOODLY at an event benefitting Farm Sanctuary and hosted by Tuesdaynights, the women’s networking group that I co-founded. It was like watching my two favorite children play together in the sandbox!

I started Tuesdaynights, with my longtime friend Melinda Moore, because women still—still!—make just 73 cents to every dollar a man earns. According to Smashd, there are more CEOs named John than there are female CEOs in the top 1,500 American companies. (Where do people get these statistics?!?) It just made sense to create a place where female entrepreneurs and executives can network and learn from each other, so we can change that statistic. Stat.

Hosted by the amazing Liz Heller, with Kym Gold, cofounder of True Religion Jeans and author of The Gold Standard, as our inspiring speaker, we were thrilled to beta test the LOVE GOODLY site with this group of smart and savvy Tuesdaynights women—and to feature it as the first in our Cause + Event series!

And we were honored to involve Farm Sanctuary, one of LOVE GOODLY’s amazing non-profit partners and an organization that’s close to our hearts. Farm Sanctuary’s mission is to “protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and promote compassionate vegan living.” Founded in 1986, today Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization, caring for animals at sanctuaries in New York, Northern and Southern California.

Farm Sanctuary is just one of the reasons that Katie and I decided to choose only vegan products for LOVE GOODLY. If you’re in Southern California, join us at this year’s Celebration for the Turkeys on November 15th! http://www.farmsanctuary.org/events/
