Help us do more

To bring about a better future, changemakers need high quality research and analysis from credible sources as the foundation for meaningful, evidence-based progress.  

That's why we created Plant Based Data and made it a free resource for all. 

We have stepwise expansion plans to curate and present the most important data regarding the benefits of plant based foods and their global impact. 

This initiative has been seeded by a small group of dedicated volunteers, but to get to the next level, we need funding to better and broaden our work.

Please consider donating now as an investment in advancing our shared mission and methods. Thank you!
