COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret
COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret, is a groundbreaking feature length environmental documentary, following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

We have been working tirelessly on this film for more than a year, and we are almost done!* We have met major challenges virtually every step of the way because of how controversial this subject is and the secrecy surrounding it, yet we have overcome each hurdle.
We have created this film all on our own, with no support from grants, sponsors, funders, or financial backers. We've put in countless hours researching, investigating, planning, filming, and editing to get to where we are, and spent tens of thousands of dollars of our own money to produce it, but without your help we can only go so far.
Now we need your help in getting the film and its message to the world.
Join us in this campaign and you will be supporting the absolute most important part of this film: getting it seen by the world.
We need you to help us tell the truth about the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet. No other industry compares to the destruction caused by industrialized animal agriculture, yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.
We as a community of conscientious people cannot allow the Earth's ecosystems to be ravaged by this industry’s insatiable appetite for resources. We must take a stand against this massive environmental destruction, even if the large environmental organizations are too afraid to do so themselves.
Together we aren't just creating a movie, we are creating a movement!
What We Need & What You Get
In order to have this film seen by as many people as possible, we need to raise $54,000 to cover the costs of promoting and distributing it. We can create an amazing film (which we have) but unless we can get people to see it, it does us and the planet little good.
Your contribution to this campaign pays for:
-Multi-city theatrical release
-Mastering a Digital Cinema Package (needed for theater screenings)
-An aggressive PR strategy
-Online target marketing
-Events to raise awareness
The more we can raise, the further we can promote this important film and ultimately influence change on a mass scale.
The benefits of supporting this film go beyond the downloads, DVDs, shirts, names in the film, elite producer status, or any of the other unique perks we offer. You will be part of a global movement towards true sustainability and conscious awakening. By supporting this campaign, you are taking a stand against corporate corruption, environmental degradation, food and water pollution, deforestation, and species extinction – and supporting the vital importance of freedom of speech and freedom of the press. You are lending your voice and speaking up for all those trampled by this maddening industry.
COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret is not just a movie, it truly is a movement. The information in this film will undoubtedly shock you as much as it did us when we first uncovered it. This film has the potential to greatly shift how we care for the world and all its inhabitants, but it can only happen with your support.
