animal agriculture


51@EarthHourWe are proposing a world-wide event to coincide with Earth Hour 2015 to raise awareness about the fact that, taking auxiliary sources such as refrigeration and deforestation into account, animal agriculture is the largest human-induced contributor (51%, according to World Bank environmental advisers) to global greenhouse gas emissions. We are seeking partnership with other organizations and individuals to help make this event as successful as it could be. Our goal is to get many people around the world to gather in local areas where Earth Hour is being observed, and using flashlights, candles, lanterns, etc. spell out “51.” Time and resources permitting, plant-based food picnics, food tasting and other festive activities may also be planned to coincide with this event.

Welcome to the community (video)

With all the bad news that that we see and hear about around the world it is easy to become discouraged about a healthy, sustainable and compassionate future for our own generation and generations yet to come. But the "if it bleeds, it leads" mentality of media hides the many good things that are happening everyday all around the world. 

At People Powered Peace, we believe that people have the power to change the world for the better without waiting for external forces (like government and industry) to do the right thing. One of the simplest and biggest ways for people to make a better world for current and future generations is to move towards a organic plant-based (vegan) diet.

We have created a short video for people who have recently made or are making the choice to moving to a more healthy, compassionate, sustainable and just lifestyle.
