There Are as Many Body Types as There Are Trees in the Forest

In this time, more than ever, inclusion matters. Recovery Day, June 26, 2020, kicked off a body diversity creative arts campaign called Love Your Tree that will last through the end of the year. This fun and powerful campaign helps people of all backgrounds develop positive body image, improved self-esteem and enhanced media literacy skills, all of which can serve as protective factors against the development of eating disorders. 

Do you see that tree? Now, look at that tree. Do you like that tree? Do you hate that tree ’cause it doesn’t look like that tree? We’re all trees. You’ve got to love your tree.

Excerpt from The Good Body, 2004 by Eve Ensler
