Finally, If you need something a little lighter, Vegucated is for you.  Billed as “Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy,” this movie follows real people as they dive into veganism for the first time. Tag along as they advance their own education and explore aspects of animal farming they hadn’t considered, becoming superheroes in their own right.  You can get this documentary on Amazon Prime or YouTube.

Furthermore, whether you’re in the mood to learn something new, be validated in your choices, or bring some levity to the situation, these vegan documentaries will fuel your plant passion.

In time, people will definitely understand how we treat animals for our own temporary gains. Not to mention, that a lot of plant-based consumptions products are being on demand because of the recent COVID-19

Also, share them with a friend or family member for a topic of conversation at the dinner table. The films will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, so grab your popcorn and a tissue, sit back,  and enjoy.
