Filmmaker James Cameron Goes Meat- and Dairy-Free

The Avatar creator decides to cut animal products from his diet for the animals and environment.

In 2009, acclaimed filmmaker James Cameron showed his interest in environmental action in his blockbuster hit Avatar by demonstrating how people’s actions can negatively impact the planet. More recently, the filmmaker has taken to changing his diet and lifestyle to encourage more sustainable living by switching to a plant-based diet and motivating his family members to do the same. In an interview with the Calgary Herald, Cameron discussed his recent switch to animal-free foods. “It’s not a requirement to eat animals, we just choose to do it, so it becomes a moral choice and one that is having a huge impact on the planet, using up resources and destroying the biosphere,” says Cameron.
