Million Dollar Vegan

Killing animals is killing us, too. Take pandemics of the menu.

Killing animals is killing us, too. Take pandemics of the menu.

Fight Climate Change
With Diet Change

Headquarters:
London, England, UK

We are proud to support the Million Dollar Vegan campaign, and its efforts to encourage Pope Francis to try adopting a vegan diet for Lent.

This campaign supports our own aim of educating people and organizations about the impacts of animal farming, and empowering them to make kinder and more conscious food choices. It also supports our goal of bringing together activists from around the world to create positive and lasting systemic change toward an animal-free global food system.

The Million Dollar Vegan campaign shares our values in that it promotes plant-based eating as a means of tackling the global problems of world hunger, lifestyle diseases, climate change and the fair treatment of animals. We hope Pope Francis will commit to going vegan for Lent, and help to raise awareness of the problems caused by animal agriculture. We urgently need more world leaders like him, to embrace positive dietary change to better protect people, animals and our planet into the future.

As part of our support, we are offering $1 million to a charity (or charities) of the Pope’s choice, should he agree to go vegan for Lent—and encourage others to do the same. Following the period of Lent and at the Pope’s request, we will be delighted to honour our charitable gift.

Why

Million Dollar Vegan is a campaign seeking to raise awareness of some of the world’s most pressing issues, and to tackle them by engaging with world leaders, institutions and individuals, and inspiring positive dietary change. We aim to inspire people to make more conscious, sustainable and benevolent choices, to turn their attention to the abundance of plant-based foods available to them, and to adopt a plant-based diet.

Profile

Million Dollar Vegan was launched in February 2019, with the first campaign designed to encourage the Pope – and others – to try vegan for Lent. Climate change, species loss, antibiotic resistance, deforestation, animal suffering and human diseases connected to dietary choices are devastating global issues that require immediate action. For the sake of the planet, people and animals, Million Dollar Vegan is working to effect change on a global level. To that end, it has staff in 15 countries: USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Australia, India, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and the UK.

Eating Our Way to Extinction

Eating Our Way to Extinction. When Food Costs the Earth, We All Pay the Price.

Eating Our Way to Extinction. When Food Costs the Earth, We All Pay the Price.

Eating Our Way to Extinction
A film that hungers to change the world

Headquarters:
London, UK

Why

Raising public awareness. While changing the food and agriculture industry at its source and investing in innovative new food ventures is crucial, educating future consumers about what’s at stake for the survival on our planet is pivotal. It is of vital importance that all of us understand the true consequences of our food choices.

Profile

Eating Our Way to Extinction is a feature-length documentary film that describes the necessary movement towards a plant-based lifestyle from a big-picture perspective, while taking into account the complex situation we find ourselves in. Even though there are many films that tackle individual aspects of the movement, the brothers and co-directors Ludo and Otto Brockway seek to present all aspects of the plant-based lifestyle movement, including interviews with celebrities and scientists, as well as ordinary people. The documentary shows the strength of the movement globally and the power of people to change; it exposes the economic inefficiencies in the global meat market; it presents groundbreaking research into the profound intellectual capabilities of animals as well as the myriad benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.
