Please Donate to IDA’s Climate Campaign,
"Green Your Plate, Green the Planet"

In Defense of Animals is collaborating with the Veg Climate Alliance, Farm Animal Rights Movement, A Well Fed World and AnimaNaturalis, an animal rights group in Mexico, to mount a major campaign encouraging a global shift toward a plant-based diet to avoid an unprecedented catastrophe from global warming and other environmental threats. Our focus will be on the United Nations Climate Conference in Cancun, Mexico in early December 2010, and we need your help to get the word out.

With irreversible climate disruption becoming more of a reality every day, the need to push for a world-wide shift to a plant-based diet is not only beneficial for the animals, but essential for all life on Earth. We are receiving so many wake-up calls in terms of massive floods, severe droughts, major heat waves, widespread wildfires and much more. According to a 2009 study written by two prominent World Bank environmental advisers, animal agriculture accounts for 51% of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. For our imperiled planet, it is urgent that we immediately shift to a sustainable path and a global shift to vegetarianism must be a major component of that effort.

Some objectives of the campaign are:

•      To engage vegetarian, animal rights, environmental, health and other organizations to support the campaign by informing their members of the issues, joining in supporting resolutions, and actively spreading the message of dietary/climate change connections in as many other ways as possible.

•      To empower individuals, and especially young people, to be the change the world needs by adopting vegan diets and actively promoting them.

•      To circulate a declaration to the UN Climate Conference in Cancun, Mexico in December 2010 promoting plant-based diets as an essential part of efforts to reduce climate change. The declaration will be translated into numerous languages and is already in Chinese, posted by the International Vegetarian Club of Beijing.

IDA will support activities and activists in Cancun during the UN climate conference, including demonstrations, presentations, publications, posters, artistic performances and advertisements in the local newspapers, on radio as well as in official conference publications. Please support our efforts with a generous donation. This is the most important investment you can make for the future of our children, grandchildren and all future generations.

If you are interested in helping with this important campaign, please contact IDA’s Grassroots Campaigns Director, Hope hope@idausa.org.
