Educating yourself about animal rights, food choices, health, and veganism really is as simple as sitting down and watching a movie. Oo, I like the way that sounds! It’s also a great way to collectively get your friends and family in on the action. Whip up a batch of popcorn, grab some Red Vines, and get ready for some awesome animal-friendly feature presentations.

If you’re rockin’ Netflix, be sure to queue these babies up!


8 Animal-Friendly Netflix Suggestions

  1. I Am Animal – Explores the world of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA.
  2. Earthlings – Delves into the food, entertainment and medical industries’ use of animals and links each to the world economy (narrated by Joaquin Phoenix).
  3. The Cove* – Follows daring animal activists at a cove in Taijii, Japan, capturing footage of a secretive and heavily guarded operation run by the world’s largest supplier of dolphins.
  4. Bold Native – This fictional feature film tells the story of a young animal rights activist.
  5. Food Inc.* – Exposes the sources of the food we eat and its environmental impacts.
  6. Food Matters* – Focuses on using nutritionally-rich, plant-based foods for optimal health.
  7. Crazy Sexy Cancer – Follows the journey of a young woman looking for a natural cure for her cancer.
  8. The Beautiful Truth – Promotes a plant-based, vegan diet as cancer and disease prevention.

* = Streamable on Netflix, too!

    It’s awesome they’re promoting The Beautiful Truth. That’s a really good movie. I found it particularly interesting as a vegan with brain cancer. I haven’t really seen the other movies up there, but I’ll have to check them out (:

    Earthlings is really powerful. It covers such a wide variety of issues that I love showing it to my student group during events. The Cove is AMAZING! I would definately reccommend Bold Native – such a great story! I feel like Food, Inc. talks about the animal aspects, but also talks about the industry a lot. I prefer Earthlings over Food, Inc. but it’s still a great movie.

    Never seen the other ones, but looking forward to watching them.

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
