“Saving The Earth, One Bite At A Time”

Jeff Hampton – This presentation can run from 30 to 60 minutes.

 Jeff Hampton is a graduate mechanical engineer with a minor in environmental sciences from Michigan State University. He developed his love for the environment at a young age, growing up on the shores of Lake Michigan and became involved in Dune Preservation and Restoration projects.

Long before it was fashionable to be “green”, Jeff designed and built his solar heated … and cooled .. house. Snug and warm in the middle of February, cool is August!!!

Fifteen years ago, Jeff adopted the Vegan, plant based, lifestyle for health reasons. As he studied the benefits of this lifestyle, he discovered the enormous, detrimental impact of the Standard American Diet …SAD … on the environment.  Animal agriculture is a curse on our planet. That is the bad news. The good news is that making the shift to a vegan, plant based lifestyle can have an enormous and immediate counter balance, making spaceship earth a far more hospitable place to live.

Jeff is an award winning presenter and competitor in the Toastmasters, International Speech Contest. Jeff’s presentation is entertaining, lively and engaging. Yes, it is possible to combine these elements into a presentation about food choices and the environment. Detailing the impact of factory farming on various eco systems .. land, water and air.

Change your life .. save the planet … one bite at a time.
