After the late, record-breaking snow this week in Colorado, spring is finally here! We are loving all of the outdoor events and hope you all have been enjoying the warm weather as well.
We have a few things to talk about, such as our new mission statement and logo, but first...
let's talk about our latest rescue.
As some of you know, we had recently rescued a guinea pig named Elliott. We knew Elliott would need a companion, so when we heard about another guinea pig, Chester, needing rescue, we jumped into action. Here is Chester waiting for his snack. Just look at that face.
Did you know...
that Switzerland passed a law making it illegal to keep just one guinea pig? Due to their social nature, Switzerland considers it an act of cruelty to keep one all alone. The country not only passed this law for guinea pigs but also for goldfish. Go, Switzerland!
We Want You To Think Dirty
No, not that kind of dirty! Rather, think about downloading the Think Dirty app. This app allows you to scan products in the store in order to check their chemical footprint. It is also a good way to avoid chemicals and artificial scents that most likely are tested on animals. It's available in both the iTunes and Google app stores.
LWH Keeping Earth Clean
Living with Harmony recently did their part for the planet at the Vegan Dairy Fair in Boulder by volunteering to handle the trash, recycle, and compost management. This was no easy task, but we were more than happy to spread the message about proper disposal methods and were thrilled that everyone seemed to appreciate the information and assistance.

This year, Living With Harmony has so far sponsored two free showings of the documentary Racing Extinction in Colorado. Each was followed by a lecture by either John Pierre (in Denver) or Miriam (in Boulder), and a Q&A.
Racing Extinctionis an important documentary that we encourage everyone to watch. It explores the ways in which humans have accelerated the extinction of wildlife and how individuals and activists can make a difference.
Follow us on Facebook for announcements of other free film showings we will host in coming months!
LWH Sharing Knowledge for the Planet
Co-Founder John Pierrerecently attended VegFest LA and gave a presentation entitled, "How To Thrive on a Vegan Diet." This annual vegan event brings in around 150 vendors and promotes various issues which resonate with the Living With Harmony mission. It is always an inspirational event for both vegans and non-vegans.
Gene Baur, known as the “conscience of the food movement,” is pictured below with John Pierre after the two managed to sneak in a quick workout during the event 😊
