Rebel Hearts with Kristie Reeves


Aug 1, 2018

This week on “Rebel Hearts”: Kristie speaks with Nil Zacharias, co-founder of One Green Planet, the largest digital media platform focused on food and sustainability. He is also the host of the popular weekly podcast "#EatForThePlanet with Nil Zacharias” and co-author of the book "Eat For The Planet". Nil started his career as a media and technology lawyer and worked for over a decade in the digital media and online advertising space in various business and operational roles prior to founding One Green Planet.

In this interview we address the question that Nil asks on his weekly podcast: how can we eat in a way that nourishes us without starving the planet?

Nil shares how he discovered the environmental impact our food choices have and how that discovery led him to going plant based. Nil educates us on how the way we currently eat on is not sustainable. We discuss how eating animal products contributes to climate change, deforestation and talk about the immense amount of water usage that occurs during meat and cheese production.
 
Each and every single one of us has the power to create environmental change. It starts with looking at our own food choices, empowering others to eat a plant based diet and sharing that knowledge.
 
To Quote Nil: "The real battle for the future of the planet - and the future of the human race- is being fought on your plates, multiple times a day, with every food choice you make.”
