Beyond Meat Launches Free Educational Program On Sustainability
Vegan food brand Beyond Meat has teamed up with education technology company EVERFI to create a science-based course on sustainability.
Announcing the partnership today, Beyond Meat has shared that the course will be available for free to teachers, students, and parents, across the US.
The sustainability course — which is targeted at those aged between ten and 14 years old — will touch on topics such as biodiversity, climate change, and global resource constraints.
“Core To Our Mission”
“Health and sustainability are core to our mission at Beyond Meat, so we’re thrilled to partner with EVERFI to bring this digital course to students,” said Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat Founder & CEO, in an email to Raise Vegan.
“We see food as a vehicle for change; this course being an important part of that commitment, helping students to learn more about the role of diet in health and sustainability.”

Beyond Meat Sustainability
Through the new online educational program, the plant-based company is working to “show the next generation first-hand how their choices, each and every day, can make a big impact on themselves, their communities and the planet.”
“Helping children understand the importance of sustainability is critically important,” said Tom Davidson, Founder and CEO of EVERFI, in an email to Raise Vegan.
“Inspired To Make Changes”
“Beyond Meat is both a leader and innovator so it makes perfect sense that they would make a similar commitment to children by helping them understand the key factors related to sustainability.”
“With this education, children will gain more clarity around the impact of their choices and may be inspired to make changes to some of their daily routines.”
