These bars are specially requested and made for Lana at EOM, Ethical Omnivore Movement. Lana is a spunky, fun gal ~ check out her site for great information and some laughs along the way!
The mission of EOM: “Our mission is that the world joins us in our very important, highly essential quest to be ethical earthlings… There need be no shame in the use of animal based products…. just in the cruel, wasteful, careless, irreverent attainment of them. That we submit, extends to all relationships in our lives… especially the one with our gracious Mother Earth.”
