I wrote this song to support the Plant Based Treaty movement, which encourages individuals, businesses, celebrities, politicians, everyone! to endorse the treaty and commit to a plant-based lifestyle as a reasonable, doable and effective response to climate change.

The Plant Based Treaty Song

 

VERSE 1

How do we address and mitigate

The core causes of climate change

How do we build a fairer, healthier

Greener world for all

 

We could start by changing our food systems

From problem to solution

Restoring damage and generating

Health and security

 

CHORUS

We got a plant based treaty

Won’t you sign on the dotted line

We’re gonna eat plants, we’re gonna plant trees

It is time to realign

We need diet change not climate change

It’s time to rearrange our priorities and endorse

The plant based treaty

 

BRIDGE

Demand #1: RELINQUISH

Stop the problem from happening.

No new land use change, ecosystem degradation or deforestation for animal agriculture.

 

Demand #2: REDIRECT

Eliminate the driving forces behind the problem.

Actively promote and transition to plant-based food and food systems.

 

Demand #3: RESTORE

Rewild and reforest the earth.

Regenerate key ecosystems to heal the problem while mitigating climate change and building resilience.

CHORUS

We got a plant based treaty

Won’t you sign on the dotted line

We’re gonna eat plants, we’re gonna plant trees

It is time to realign

We need diet change not climate change

It’s time to rearrange our priorities and endorse

The plant based treaty

 

VERSE 3

We have the solutions in our grasp

Available and ready

We just need to make it happen

And that’s where you come in

 

Let’s make a promise, a pledge, a vow

An agreement, an alliance

We’ll cooperate and collaborate

We’ll commit right here right now

 

CHORUS

We got a plant based treaty

Won’t you sign on the dotted line

We’re gonna eat plants, we’re gonna plant trees

It is time to realign

We need diet change not climate change

It’s time to rearrange our priorities

 

We got a plant based treaty

Won’t you sign on the dotted line

We’re gonna eat plants, we’re gonna plant trees

It is time to realign

We need diet change not climate change

It’s time to rearrange our priorities and endorse

The plant based treaty
