Go Plant-Strong!
The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

Family Friday: Congrats to Lori’s Son!

This made our day! E2-er Lori, has a 16 year old son who is plant-strong. He won “Most Outstanding Jr.Firefighter of 2011/2012″!

“This is what Lori said: I have shared with you previously that my 16 year old son has used you as his role-model. He has been plant-based for just over a year now. He was enrolled in a Jr. Firefighting program this past year at his Highschool, and tonight was awarded the Most Outstanding Jr. Firefighter of 2011/12 by our Mayor. I am one proud momma! Thank you for inspiring others!”

We are the ones who need to say thanks to teens like this who inspire US! Congrats! We are proud of you

    Congratulations! Lori, you must be a very proud mother. Your fine son (no name was given) has a great headstart in superior health. Don’t we all wish we had the information he’s applying when we were his age. He has obviously worked very hard to deserve such an honor. Give him our best wishes for a great future. Linda
