World Vegan Day Ethical Film Festival

Eco Veggie Fayre - Croydon Festival of Sustainability and Health

We would like to also run an Environmental Film Festival (If we can find a sponsor)

We only have time for 2 films - please vote for the film you or your friends would most like to see on World Vegan Day in Croydon.

Watch the trailers and vote for your favourite film.

A Delicate Balance A Delicate Balance documents the latest discoveries of some of the most prominent experts on nutrition in the world. With a focus on health and theramifications on the environment over 50 years of research is skilfully woven into what feels like a detective unravelling the mysteries behind the disease epidemic which has struck affluent countries with a vengeance - disease has been escalating over the last 50 years resulting in 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women being diagnosed with cancer.

Food Matters Food Matters discusses the importance of Nutrition & Natural Therapies for preventing and reversing chronic illness. The film shows which foods and therapies are ideal for optimal health and have been proven to help with Heart Disease, Diabetes, Depression, Cancer and many more Chronic Illnesses and everyday conditions.

End of The Line The world’s first major documentary about the devastating effect of overfishing premiered at Sundance Film Festival. Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act.

The Age of Stupid - "We could have saved ourselves, but we didn’t. It’s amazing. What state of mind were we in, to face extinction and simply shrug it off?” Climate change and present apathy viewed from the future. - A tight squeeze on your reproductive organs to widen your eyes to the plight of the planet.

 Meat The Truth The documentary Meat the Truth is the first major project undertaken by the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation, presented by Marianne Thieme (leader of the Party for the Animals)Meat the Truth has drawn attention to the role of Meat in climate change by demonstrating that livestock farming generates more greenhouse gas emissions worldwide than all cars, lorries, trains, boats and planes added together.

Earthlings - EARTHLINGS is an award-winning documentary film about the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment and medical research. Considered the most persuasive documentary ever made, it reminds people that animals are earthlings too and our many crimes against them are unforgiveable.

You decide which of these films you would like to watch on a big screen for just £3

World Vegetarian And Vegan News: World Vegan Day Poll Revelations

world vegan day
World Vegan Day Poll Revelations

World Vegan Day 2009

This year's World Vegan day is rather special for Vegans - It's 65 years since Donald Watson first inspired people to formally recognise his philosophy as vegan and help him form the world's first Vegan Society. World Vegan Day has been celebrated every year since the 50th / Golden Anniversary in 1994 but there's a determination that this year it will be one of the most special of all.

Never before has there been so much self reflection and looking forward with renewed pragmatic resolve.

Why is that after 65 years veganism still fails to flourish in the way it logically should? We have the evidence, it's better for the environment, it's more sustainable, it's better for health, it's better for people, it's more ethical - civilised society should embrace it wholeheartedly! What's holding the thinking majority back?

A World Vegan Day Poll asked vegan visitors "What would make your friends try veganism?" Unsurprisingly from a movement largely driven by a commitment to Animal Welfare the no1 result was

'Being taken around a slaughterhouse' with 31% of the Vote

Interesting though The World Vegan Day Poll reveals a more practical potential important focus area for vegan campaigns.

Better Vegan choices and dishes in Restaurants comes in a close 2nd with 28% of the vote

Previously Fresh Fast Food caterers such as Pret a' manger had started to address this issue with a range of inspired salads, vegetable sushi and the ubiquitous Hummous and roasted vegetable wrap - hell they even had Green & Blacks chocolate.

Then it's seems Julian Metcalf took his eye off the ball again and bits of creme fraiche (AARRGGGH!) or feta seemed to have unnecessarily crept back in to all the plant based dishes (like they all needed a little extra saturated animal fat?????)

Still other restaurants that do take vegan plant based choices seriously are filling the gap. Restaurants such as Tibbits in Piccadilly, Itsu and the celebrated Leon chain have their eyes and hearts firmly fixed on Pret's lunchtime trade and the pre-theatre crowd too.

They are not alone though.

Following Sir Paul McCartney and Celebrity friends Meat Out Monday relaunch, and McCartney family arch rival Heather Mills' determination to take over the world with her globally franchisable V-Bites more and more caterers are beginning to see the light.

Having equal value for money choices of equal quality on the nations menus, thus making it more convenient and more enjoyable to choose vegan can only result in one thing - more people choosing vegan - it's the only logical choice.

If we manage to remove that final excuse - "oh it's too difficult" then there is nothing stopping people apart from pure selfish greed and a masochistic suicidal obsession with destruction and torture.

Clearly it's not that difficult as growing numbers of people are vegan at least on a part time basis.

World Vegan Day will be celebrated in London's second City - Croydon at an ECO-VEG Fayre and healthy family fun day at Croydon's legendary Fairfield Halls on Sunday November 1st. There will be a big emphasis on encouraging restaurants and cafes to include 100% plant based options on their menus at this event and during Croydon's Food Festival
