The sooner we shift to plant-based eating, the sooner we’ll create a much, much better world.

Plant-based eating has become increasingly popular in recent years, and it’s easy to understand why. Faced with an obesity epidemic, a climate crisis, and even a global pandemic, many people are looking for ways to make meaningful change to support the future of our planet. 


Plant-based eating is a uniquely powerful individual choice that has tremendous positive effects for personal health, environmental sustainability, and reducing the number of animals subjected to horrific suffering and death. 

From the recent Canada Food Guide to the EAT-Lancet report to the Drawdown Review, experts around the world recognize the importance of shifting to plant-based diets.

The benefits of plant-based eating

By eating plant-based, you’ll be helping to address climate change, air and water pollution, deforestation, and global hunger. You’ll also be adding years to your life and life to your years! Studies have shown that the risks of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, ischemic stroke, and some types of cancer are all substantially lower in people eating largely plant-based diets.

You’ll also be shifting your support from industries that inherently cause animal abuse and suffering on an unfathomable scale to those that produce the foods keeping us healthiest: fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds.

Far from being restrictive, moving toward plant-based eating today is easier than ever, and it can open up a world of culinary possibilities and reignite a love for food that nourishes your body. Start making your shift today!
