15-year-old Elisa Escalante of Mexico has been vegetarian since birth, and is active in environmental causes.
Cowspiracy motivated her to transition to veganism but left her feeling discouraged at the lack of conversation from environmental groups surrounding animal agriculture and it's effects on the environment.
Like many of you, she reached out to Greenpeace [Mexico] repeatedly to see if she could get answers. She expressed her concern for the lack of information that was being provided to it's supporters and refused to accept their form responses. Finally, to her surprise she received an honest answer from an employee.
He stated that while many of their employees and volunteers are vegan, it's a hard issue to talk about given that many of their members would not appreciate such campaigns. He assured her they would try and educate more on the valid issue and the correspondence finally came to an end.
A few weeks later, Elisa received an email from the Greenpeace Mexico employee letting her know that they took her concerns to heart and are beginning to educate more on the topic through social media like the examples below and on their website
