The pro-plant-based film, narrated by acclaimed actor Kate Winslet, sheds light on how animal agriculture is the most destructive industry in the world.


Award-winning climate change documentary Eating Our Way to Extinction is now available to watch for free on YouTube. 

Narrated by acclaimed actor Kate Winslet, the film sheds light on how animal agriculture is the most destructive industry in the world, making audiences “question their everyday choices”.

‘Ecological collapse’

“Eating our Way to Extinction is a documentary which takes audiences on a cinematic journey around the world,” the film’s description reads.

“From the depths of the Amazon rainforest to the Taiwanese Mountains, the Mongolian desert, the US Dust Bowl, the Norwegian Fjords and the Scottish coastlines; telling the story of our planet through testimonials from indigenous people most affected by our ever-changing planet and globally renowned figures”.

World-renowned experts such as Dr Sylvia Earle (Former Chief Scientist of NOAA and explorer) and Prof. Olivier de Schutter (Former United Nations Special Rapporteur) also feature in the doc.

Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop, a former Principal Scientist who appears in the film, said: “Scientists have predicted that in just over two decades, species loss will be so great that we won’t recover, the Earth will suffer ecological collapse and the most impactful thing you and I can do to stop this, is to change our diets.”

Eating Our Way to Extinction

After launching on paid-platforms in 2021, Eating Our Way to Extinction has attracted a slew of praise online.

Vegan charity PETA, who attended the documentary’s premiere, said: “Eating Our Way to Extinction hits the ground running, presenting viewers with several clear and undeniable facts about the devastating effects of the global animal agriculture industry on the environment.

“Throughout the film, the use of powerful imagery and easy-to-digest graphics demonstrates the negative impact that the production of meat, fish, and dairy has on animals, our planet, human health, and indigenous communities living off the land…

“Time and time again, Eating Our Way to Extinction presents going vegan as the only choice that humans can make to help reverse the ecological damage already done to our planet by the animal agriculture industry”.
