Mission Statement

Help Earthsave Canada bring educational tools into schools and workplaces. We are a Vancouver-based registered charity since 1990. We advocate the move towards a more whole food, plant-based diet for environmental sustainability, better health, and compassion toward animals. We also believe communities are stronger when they set a table that people from all cultures and beliefs can enjoy. Some of our initiatives include MeatlessMonday.ca, The Vancouver Veg Directory, Taste of Health Vegetarian Food Fair, and our educational brochures on Protein and Calcium. Become a member or supporter today – YOU are Earthsave.

WHAT IS A PLANT-BASED DIET? ‘Plant-based’ is a flexible diet where the bulk of calories and nutrition come from plant sources. Plants such as vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains, nuts and seeds, are the base of the diet. This way of eating is not as strict as going vegan, and is more focused on whole foods and healthy options, not just foods free from animal products. This diet results in significant benefits to our health, the environment and the lives of animals. WHY PLANT-BASED? Organic animal products are a luxury few can afford while most can agree that factory farming is far from appetizing. Many cultures and beliefs do not eat certain meats, or cannot tolerate dairy, but everyone can enjoy a plant-based meal and all are welcome at the table. Reducing our consumption of animal products may very well be the greatest contribution to sustainability we can make as individuals, and is certainly the most highly recommended way of preventing chronic diseases.

YOU can help us balance the nutritional information out there with some well researched data from the experts. Help create a Canadian-made veg starter kit booklet and colourful plant-based food guide, with corresponding power point presentation as part of our HEALTHY PEOPLE HAPPY PLANET FOOD GUIDE. http://earthsave.ca/healthypeoplehappyplanet

Description

These days most Canadians receive the bulk of their nutritional information from advertisers. Industry is driving Canada's food guide recommendations and the planet, our health, and the animals are suffering for it. We need to take the focus away from processed animal products to whole food, plant-based options.
Education is the key to a healthy and sustainable future.
