Cowspiracy Documentary

I was vegan for several months before I even knew that I was doing something that benefited the environment. Many people do not realize the detrimental effects that eating meat, dairy and eggs have on our environment, and Cowspiracy is the perfect documentary to shed some light on that. In the film, Kip Anderson, an avid environmentalist, attempts to figure out why leading environmental organizations, such as Greenpeace or Sierra Club, refuse to mention animal agriculture as one of the leading causes of environmental devastation. The documentary reveals a lot of surprising facts; animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, rainforest destruction, species extinction, and greenhouse gases, to name a few. I would absolutely recommend this documentary to anyone who considers themselves to be an environmentalist or even environmentally-friendly. Cowspiracy may have been the best documentary I have ever watched; it is shocking, but also allows you to understand what is really going on. (Did you know that it requires 2,500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef? That is equivalent to showering for about 2 months!) If you want to be informed, definitely watch Cowspiracy.
