Educated Choices Make a Difference
The Educated Choices Program provides academic presentations to students on campuses across the US and Canada, educating students and communities about food choices and the resulting effects on human health as well as the sustainability of our planet and all its inhabitants. Connecting with over 1.3 million students to date, data analysis confirms that over 52% of students and teachers who participate in the presentations reduce their consumption of animal products and become more inclined to incorporate plant-based foods into their diet. The momentum toward plant-based eating is gaining traction, and ECP plays a timely role in helping others understand that a crucial step toward a healthier planet begins right on their plates!
