Green Festival Speakers

Rod Rotondi


Rotondi is owner of Leaf Organics, an organic, vegan and raw food restaurant. His food receives rave reviews from celebrities including Woody Harrelson, Andre 3000, Ali Larter, Alicia Silverstone and Phil Jackson. Changing the world one bite at a time has become Rotondi's approach to social activism and environmental entrepreneurism. Choosing organic, vegan and raw foods is not only supporting our individual bodies with optimally nutritious foods, but supporting the growth of the whole organic and vegan industry, which is supporting our individual health and the health of our planet. After years of working in the Third World as a Development Economist, Rotondi returned to the US to meld his business acumen, culinary gifts and his passion for optimally healthy foods. His dream was to create an inclusive eatery, one so affordable and delicious that people would eat there daily and make a positive change to their lives.
