Let’s take a minute to talk about Leonardo DiCaprio.
Seriously can this man get any more awesome?
Not only is he involved in tons of conservation and sustainability projects (check out his foundation here), he also donated millions to environmental protection groups and ocean conservation programs and in all his awesomeness, he still has the time to save animals and support organisations who help defend endangered species.
In 2014 he also held an amazing speech about climate change to the United Nation at their climate summit. He made clear that climate change is real and that the world’s leaders should finally take action.
In addition he narrated the short film Carbon for Green World Rising, where they suggest to put a tax on carbon emissions (sing with me ‘if you like it then you should put a tax on it…’) by industries in order to slow down or even stop the devastating effects of green house gases.
Can documentaries get any sexier?
But now he took things to a whole new level as he’s taking on the animal AG industry. As executive producer of the new cut of the documentary Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret and with the new global release on Netflix in November 2015, he helped to make the movie even more popular. Thank god he finally got his long time due Oscar this year!
This is not the first time he is involved in a documentary with Netflix: In 2014 he was a partner of Netflix’s production Virunga, which is about the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the rangers’ work to keep their animals safe.
In Cowspiracy you’ll find out how animal agriculture is destroying our planet (and our health) and how no one wants to see the problem. Take a controversial look at the animal agriculture industry’s practices and collisions with environmental organizations like Greenpeace and learn how to cut your carbon foot print by adopting a plant based diet. No other industry in this world is primarily responsible for so many bad changes in environment and we are literally eating ourself into extinction. Help win the war against climate change by adopting simple food choices. A shift in diet would have an immediate impact on the planet an its ecosystems.
Climate change is real and it is driven by human causes. Remember: A person who follows a vegan diet produces the equivalent of 50% less carbon dioxide, uses 1/11th oil, 1/13th water and 1/18th land compared to a meat-lover for their food. Real change is possible.
