Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret

Release Year: 2014

Directed by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret dives into the environmental issues caused by factory farming and the animal agriculture industry. Basically, the film presents the fact that the animal agriculture industry is not sustainable based on the amount of water and other resources go into prepping the animals to be slaughtered.

The information presented in the film is mostly through experts in the field of animal agriculture and various environmental agencies.

Cowspiracy was funded by thousands of donations on IndieGoGo.

If you watch one documentary on Earth Day, Cowspiracy would be the one I would go with… if you care about the environment at all, that is.
