On August 8, 2018, a live virtual event was held with the PlantPure Communities team, Nelson Campbell, PPC Founder and Board Chair, and Peter Lehner, Senior Strategic Advisor at Earthjustice. There was a moderated discussion about the impacts of our food choices on climate, where these two leaders set the stage for future conversations between environmental and nutrition advocates.

Our animal-based western diet has a larger impact on climate change than all transportation impacts combined!
With the vision of leading a grassroots movement to promote the health benefits of plant-based nutrition, Nelson Campbell founded PlantPure Communities, and was the founding Executive Director and a founding board member, until he stepped down from those positions in early September 2016 and joined the Board of Advisors.
