Here’s one for the soft-hearted folks: Moby’s Silver Lake vegan restaurant Little Pine plans on giving away all its profits to a slate of animal welfare programs.
Little Pine’s reps reached out about the news just yesterday, saying that the move to not re-pocket a cent of profit comes straight from the man himself. To quote:
Opening little pine was never meant to be a conventional entrepreneurial endeavor. I want it to represent veganism in a really positive light, and also to support the animal welfare organizations who do such remarkable work.
The move is certainly made easier by Moby's undoubted millions in the bank, though there is truly something charming about the whole idea.
It also fits in with Moby’s longstanding friendly and compassionate vibe. Remember, this is the man who showed up himself to discuss his forthcoming Rowena Avenue project in front of the community when the place faced a bit of potential backlash over their late hours and patio seating.
The organizations being donated to include: The Humane Society, Farm Sanctuary, Sea Shepard, PETA, Animal Legal Defense Fund, and more. So if you’re in for a little animal goodwill, you can now go eat like a beast yourself at Little Pine, and know that you’re doing a good thing.
