Watching the first 10 minutes from this documentary I quickly recognised myself in Kin Anderson’s words when he describes himself as being an “environmentally conscious person”. According to him, he always watches his water usage (having extremely quick showers), makes his own compost, recycles his waste, cycles everywhere, and many other things he believes would help to save the planet.
However, he wasn’t convinced that he was doing enough and, digging up for alternatives, he discovered that animal agriculture is the number one cause of environmental destruction at the moment. So a better solution would be going vegan, following a 100% plant based diet.
Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a very informative documentary and makes you rethink your meat consumption. I’m not vegan, not even vegetarian, but I do think about the environment and how I can do my best to help save it – you know, being a good boy/girl scout: “leave the planet better than you found it“. I’m not sure yet if I would change my diet right way to such a restrict model, but I reduced my meat consumption for at least some time now. Having it only for a maximum of one meal a day, and also avoiding dairy products (because, after all, milk comes from cows :P).
I know is not that much, but we need to start somewhere, right?
I’ll leave you now with their official trailer (the full documentary is available on Netflix).
