(US/dc) A vegan office: How one workplace has moved to get healthier together
- [featuring PCRM!]
Carrie Clyne�s last job was in an office that feasted on a steady supply of
junk food. Donuts in the mornings and cupcakes for staffers� birthdays were
the familiar routine.
But in January, when she took a position with nonprofit organization
Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, she was pleasantly surprised
by her new employer�s decidedly different attitude toward food.
PCRM has an office policy mandating that only vegan food may be eaten in
its office. The organization, which advocates for healthy eating,
preventive medicine and ethical clinical research, is so committed to the
rule that it notifies prospective employees of the policy when they receive
an offer letter for a job.
PCRM decided to go vegan for a simple reason.
�We want to practice what we preach,� said Susan Levin, the group�s
director of nutrition education.
