Miles has been an artist since he was about 14 years old and began with visual arts and poetry. He also teaches living a sustainable lifestyle that incorporates veganism and avoiding over-consumption of waste products. Miles has partnered with the 5 Gyres Organization, and he teaches kids at their schools about sustainability while advocating for plant-based diets. 5 Gyres also studies how plastic is affecting our oceans. Miles explains that paper can be one of the most sustainable and renewable sources. Opt for paper instead of plastic when you can, and save our environment from plastic waste. If you do have plastic materials try to reuse them as much as possible. Miles reuses all of his plastic bags at the store!
Miles shows us this complex contraption called an almond cow milk maker. He himself loves the milk produced from sunflower seeds. He shows us how to make milk with sunflower and dates. He also prefers cooking quinoa instead of rice because it has more protein and it even cooks faster. Miles uses Beyond Meat vegan sausage, asparagus, and sliced apples to make a delicious meal. Adam Leo and Paige agree that this bowl is not only healthy but great tasting. Try making your own sustainable feast in a bowl at home with Miles’s recipe below!
The Paper Earth Fair is TODAY April 7th from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.!
