EARTHSAVE CANADA is a Vancouver-based registered charity since 1992 (founded in 1989). We advocate the move towards a more whole food, plant-based diet for environmental sustainability, better health, and compassion toward animals. We also believe communities are stronger when they set a table that people from all cultures and beliefs can enjoy. Plant-based is the most equitable menu there is! Almost as important as the word 'plant' is the word 'based'. We feel that the base of our diet should come from plants, but do not require people to be strict in their diet to make a difference - making 'plant-based' a label we can all get behind.
This year, thanks to the support and involvement of our members and incredible volunteers; Earthsave has been able to carry out our mission to educate and advocate more than ever before. With most Canadians getting their nutritional information from industry-influenced media, our mission has never been more important.

Earthsave Canada is a registered Canadian non-profit, educational organization promoting awareness of the environmental, ethical and health consequences of our food choices. We advocate the move towards a more whole foods, plant-based diet for environmental sustainability, better health, and compassion toward all animals.
We all want to make a difference. For many it can be overwhelming to consider all the options available, and the many streams of information coming at us every day. Here at Earthsave Canada we feel that moving towards a plant-based diet is the single most effective thing that you, as an individual, can do to make the world a healthier, greener, and kinder place. With one simple change to our lifestyle we can have an incredible impact on the world around us. Many begin on the plant-based path inspired by a single reason, only to find themselves committed to a lifelong change by considering all the many reasons. We want to support people, young and old, in their efforts to make the transition to a better way of life
We are making changes and growing every year. We hope you will want to be part of it and help us make a difference. We invite you to browse through our site to learn more about what we do, and consider becoming a member today. JOIN US.
The EarthSave Foundation was started in the United States in 1987 by John Robbins as a result of overwhelming response to his book, "Diet for a New America." Earthsave Canada began in Vancouver BC in 1989, and was legally incorporated as a non-profit society in British Columbia on March 1, 1992. Since then we have grown along with our members, but remain an independent and economically sound volunteer-run organization.
