As it may empower the viewers to improve their life choices. “There are so many people out there that care, that have a lot of love for this world.” states Otto Brockway – director of Eating Our Way To Extinction in the interview with LiveKindly, “They have a lot of common sense and they understand that the planet is in crisis. But perhaps, because of the lack of information, they haven’t quite realized yet just how bad our eating habits are.”
