How You Can Save Wildlife brings us a simple and sweet film about the link between consumerism, meat-eating and environmental catastrophe. The film uses a vibrant animation style to make its message accessible to all.
The link that the film makes is a simple one. The rampant consumerism of an industrial society bent on meat consumption necessarily takes a toll on the earth. In order to grow the food needed for meat production, and the land to raise these animals on, deforestation techniques abound.
The solution? Veganism. The film squarely places the solution of this process on a change in consumption. Of course, this could gloss over the rampant consumption that fuels other forms of ecological disaster, but as a first step the change to eating a vegan diet would drastically change the balance of ecosystems and prevent further damage. If one of the only necessary consumptions, food, can be made ethical then why not change, especially when it can beat environmental disaster and capitalism at its own game?
