Activist and author John Robbins is the founder of EarthSave International, "a non-profit organization that promotes nutrition and a healthy lifestyle including a vegan diet". Vegans take a vegetarian diet one step further, consuming only food that is dairy-free, egg-free and free of all animal-derived ingredients. Robbins' writings on diet, health, animal welfare, the environment, and corporate capitalism long put him at odds with his father, Irv Robbins, and uncle, Burt Baskin, co-founders of the Baskin-Robbins chain of ice cream parlors.
