Countdown to Year Zero Reviews

Animal agriculture is causing unprecedented damage to our environment, with cataclysmic impacts being felt around the globe. From climate change to land destruction, and habitat loss to ocean dead zones, “Countdown to Year Zero” shows the clear links between the meat and dairy industries and our race toward irreversible, ecological disaster.


But it’s not too late—yet. “Countdown to Year Zero” explains that as we move away from our dependency on animal products and towards a sustainable, plant-based diet, our personal choices can have an impact on the future of our planet. Featuring interviews with leaders in environmentalism, social media activists, and powerful footage from demonstrations around the world, the film makes the point that we all have a responsibility for the world our children will inherit.


Veganism is rooted in ethics and not exploiting animals, but it’s also one of the most significant changes we can make for our health and the health of the planet. Learn how others are embracing the move towards a plant-based lifestyle and how you also have the power to make a difference.


Critically, “Countdown to Year Zero” is very approachable. It’s intent is not to make people feel bad for eating animal products, but to inspire all of us to try a new way of life, and to take part in building new, healthier ways of eating that create a sustainable future for everyone.

This shocking documentary shows us what ‘year zero’ looks like, why we should all be terrified of it, and how each of us can work as individuals and groups to prevent it. With unprecedented changes in climate, the sixth great mass extinction in the history of Earth on the horizon, and escalated weather events around the world, Countdown to Year Zero sounds the trumpet as a call to combat. From scientists to celebrities to everyday people, new social media influencers to longtime activists to transformed campaigners, this documentary has the power to shake off apathy and awaken the most resistant peaceful warrior’s soul.

Powerful!  This is a must-see film for everyone, from long-time vegans to omnivores.   Countdown To Year Zero is as much of an inspiration as it is a call to action.  This film shows the devastating impact that animal agriculture is having on animals being used for food, wild animals, human health, and our one and only home, Planet Earth; and how we can change course, by creating a Vegan World.  With a Vegan World, we can prevent Year Zero and reverse climate change.  With our hearts and minds, moving from a system of normalized violence, to a system of normal non-violence, we can heal the planet, save the animals and ultimately, save humankind.
