Whitney Lauritsen is many things: journalist, filmmaker, photographer, social media guru…but most of all she is an eco-conscious vegan. She dedicates her time and energies to spreading awareness about how to make healthy eating choices and develop a planet-friendly lifestyle. Whitney graduated from Emerson College in 2004 with a degree in film production. After several years of working in the industry she discovered a passion for journalism and launched the Eco-Vegan Gal website in 2008. Her experience and passions came together to produce video content on wellness and sustainability, which has become a wildly successful channel on YouTube. Whitney has also been tagged in Social Media circles as a rising star: Mashable named her one of the top 75 Environmentalists to Follow on Twitter, and she was included in Twitter’s list of Top 10 Eco Hotties.
Visitors at Berkeley Vegan Earth Day will be treated to an engaging talk as Whitney shares her vast experience with all things vegan.
