Documentaries to Watch

There are many powerful, educational documentaries on the consequences of eating and exploiting animals. These films have been instrumental in kickstarting the vegan revolution.


If you are still consuming meat and dairy, we challenge you to educate yourself by committing to watching at least 5 or 6 of the films on this list. 

Animals have had  their entire lives stolen for the benefit of humans, please commit a few hours of your time to learn the full story so that you can make an informed decision at your next meal. 


If there's truly nothing wrong with the industry, you won't mind watching and learning how it all works. However, you will also learn how much healthier you and the planet will be if you move to a vegan diet.
