“Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret”
a film by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn
A resource list put together by the Rochester Area Vegan Society:
What if the single most powerful thing you could do to address global warming and protect the environment were something you could decide to do overnight, without any upfront investment, special knowledge, or reliance on other people’s help, cooperation or permission?
What if this decision, at the same time that it helped to save the planet, resulted in incalculable benefits to your own health and the well-being of the creatures we share the planet with?
