Vegan and Ethical Documentaries

Be inspired to go vegan – and stay there!

Arm yourself with knowledge, facts and reasoning. Start with these fascinating documentaries.

Cowspiracy – this is a great place to start. The ground-breaking documentary discusses the most destructive industry our planet is tolerating, whilst calling out environmental agencies for supporting it. The truths really hit hard here.

What the Health – from the makers of Cowspiracy. This documentary focuses on veganism for optimum health, and researches the damage that eating meat is doing to our bodies.

Earthlings – shows the entire reality of what happens in animal-related industries. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix too! Be warned: contains graphic and disturbing footage of violence against animals, so perhaps not one for the squeamish.

Earthling Ed’s Youtube channel is just pure gold activism – go and subscribe now! Start with this 30 minute video Ed gave to a UK university. Ed shares facts about veganism, has calm debates with farmers and meat-eaters, and visits sanctuaries and slaughterhouses.

Forks over Knives – examines the claim that most (if not all) of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.

Dominion – shows us modern animal agriculture through drones, hidden & handheld cameras. It explores the morality and validity of our dominion over the animal kingdom.

Blackfish – this story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature, and reveals how little humans have learned from our fellow mammals.
