Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret

Author: Keegan Kuhn & Kip Andersen · Subject: Environment & Nature


Discover the biggest issue in conservation today. This companion to the documentary Cowspiracy explores the impacts of the most environmentally destructive industry on the planet: animal agriculture. 

The award-winning documentary Cowspiracy presents alarming truths about the effects of animal agriculture on the planet. One of the leading causes of deforestation, greenhouse gas production, water use, species extinction, ocean dead-zones, and a host of other ills, animal agriculture is a significant threat to the future of all species, and one of the environmental industry’s best-kept secrets.

The Sustainability Secret expands upon Cowspiracy in every way. Journey with authors Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn as they discover one shocking statistic after another and interview leading businesses, environmental organizations, and political groups about the subject of animal agriculture and its disastrous effects. Extended transcripts, updated statistics, tips on becoming vegan, and comprehensive reading lists provide an in-depth overview of this planetary crisis and demonstrate effective ways to offset the damage through personal dietary choices.

Firmly rooted in science and supporting research, The Sustainability Secret reveals the devastating environmental impact of the meat and dairy industry and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.

“Keegan Kuhn has a very important message for the world. This book comes after his wonderful film ‘Cowspiracy’. Everyone needs to see this film to learn why what they eat is so important for the environment. If everyone made a change to their diet, that would be the easiest and fastest way to reduce global warming and climate change. The planet is being destroyed because of unsustainable food practices. Thanks Keegan Kuhn for writing this book and making your film so that everyone can be aware of what is happening.” – Janet Miller, Amazon

“…I never wanted this book to end and not just because it was so fascinating, unnerving, frustrating and insightful. More importantly, I knew from page one there would have to be major changes in my personal life. While I quit meat six months ago it was really only the beginning to sustainability.” – Pearly Baker, Amazon

“…”The Sustainability Secret”, and the corresponding movie “Cowspiracy” have absolutely transformed my life. Like most Americans I considered myself a carnivore, in fact, I took pride in being a “meat-eating man” because I felt that it somehow made me more masculine. How ignorant I was. I never thought about the environmental impact of eating meat and animal products because nobody talks about it. We have become focused on the war on fossil fuels without ever questioning the severe impact of our own diet. This book provides astounding information and statistics on the unsustainable American Diet mostly based on animal products.” – Cameron Mennis, Amazon
