The Game Changers (Netflix and online)
1 hour 25 mins

Great documentary showing the amazing feats made possible by a plant-based diet. Backed by some big names – Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Lewis Hamilton, James Cameron – entertaining, informative and busts quite a few myths.

A short video by Erin Janus which explains the reasons to ditch dairy in 5 minutes.

A must watch, hugely powerful documentary showing all the ways animals are used by humans. Broken into chapters from puppy farms, fashion, entertainment, food, and animal testing. Although content can be challenging, you deserve to know the truth as it’s been hidden too long.

Earthlings is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix (2005).

“Life changing” “Very powerful” “Made me see the world differently”

Cowspiracy (Netflix)
1 hour 30 mins

Check the website here: cowspiracy.com
