Evan Help Us: The Greening of Evan Almighty

Evan Almighty hits theaters today, and hopes to spread a green message all around. From production of the film, to the premiere, to the actual messaging inside the film, Mother Nature is Queen.

“We wanted to live the themes of the movie,” said Tom Shadyac, director of the film. “Instead of destroying [the planet] to talk about not destroying it, we wanted to walk the walk.” Or ride the ride, you could say…seeing that Tom bought bikes for the entire cast & crew.

They’re planting an Almighty Forest of trees to offset carbon emissions and donated all of their usable goods to Habitat for Humanity. Sounds like Shadyak is even working on a “green movie” certification process, so that we can easily tell which movies “Leave No Trace”.

The premiere was a huge green party that sent everyone home with everything from a reusable grocery bag to CFL light bulbs.

I love Morgan Freeman‘s quote, “There is a planet and then there’s us. We are the new dinosaurs. And if we aren’t careful, we’re going to wind up just like the old ones did.”

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
