Whether you’re just starting out or have made a longer commitment to diet change, it’s always good to keep learning.

Join us for our screening of this film on April 22.

If you and/or your friends are interested in environmental issues we strongly recommend that you join us for our screening of Eating Our Way to Extinction on April 22 at the Trylon Cinema at 3pm. It’s a beautifully made, powerful film. And we’ll follow it with a discussion of how factory farming is impacting Minnesota’s environment.

Getting more details on animal/vegan issues may help in answering questions from friends and family. Facts are important—and they are on our side.

Luckily, there are lots of books and films out there that can provide the information you seek, and the learning can always continue. A quick internet search will bring you to lots of them. We also have other recommendations in the Resources section of our website. Below are some suggested by our community.

Make sure you are on our email list so you get notified when we have another film screening or book discussion coming up. You can sign up on our website. Following our social media on Facebook and Instagram @exploreveg will also keep you updated!

Recommended films on animal/vegan issues:

  • Peaceable Kingdom, Earthlings, Cowspiracy, The Game Changers. Gunda was amazing and is beyond description (and if you want to watch a powerful animal rights film that doesn’t show violence to animals, this is it). The film 73 Cows is on my need-to-watch list.
