About Cowspiracy: Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organisations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet.

As a filmmaker, he helps organizations reach an ever-greater community of supporters with the highest possible quality films and videos.

About Meat Free Mondays South Africa: is a non-profit environmental campaign, trying to spread awareness in South Africa about the devastating impact factory farming has on the planet, animal welfare and humanity. In the past two years, the organisation has spoken to nearly 15’000 South Africans about how important diet is in terms of sustainability. Brett Thompson, National Program Manager, has this to say about Cowspiracy: “When looking at sustainability, diet needs to be addressed first. Cowspiracy accurately unravels how important diet is in mitigating all of the leading causes of global depletion while showing what is stopping environmental organisations from being more vocal on the matter.”cowspiracy, cowspiracy south africa, environment
