Vegan 2021

Plant Based News (PBN) annual short film, VEGAN 2021, recaps the year and brings to light the astronomical growth of the vegan movement. 2021 started with a bang, with a dizzying nearly half a million people signing up for Veganuary.

Throughout the year, plant-based meat companies forged partnerships with the biggest names in the food industry, like McDonald's, Subway, and Dominos, to name a few. A host of high-profile names spoke out about animal exploitation, including Grammy Award-winner Billie Eilish and Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton, who are both vegan.

Corporations shelled out millions of dollars to place behind alternative protein start-ups, and communities around the globe rallied together to help protect the planet from the climate emergency. 

Klaus Mitchell, director of the PBN annual film series and founder of PBN, said the new short film arrived at just the right time. He explained: "More people than ever are paying attention to the vegan movement, and VEGAN 2021 highlights why.

"This short film sheds light on the growing awareness of plant-based living, and why picking up the lifestyle is easier, simpler, and more important than ever before."
