Asher Brown stopped eating meat when he was just 9 years old. He realized if could ask what the cow might want, it would not want to be eaten.
It wasn’t easy being the only vegetarian in his family; his mom worried he might never grow up big and strong without meat. But his parents supported him and at 20, he went from vegetarian to vegan.
However, like many of us, he was an apologetic vegan. He didn’t want to make others uncomfortable, didn’t want to be the odd one out or the “awkward” guy at the dinner table.
But when he got hired to make videos for Beyond Meat, all that changed—he found his voice.
He discovered Vegan Instagram, and that he was part of a group of millions of vegans around the world, standing up for the animals.
That sparked his move into activism.
Asher began speaking at conferences, connecting with other vegans, and working for vegan brands.
Asher Brown is the founder of Pollution TV, a content agency that works solely with ethical companies and conscious brands to spread vegan awareness and lead social change. He’s also recently launched a plant-based cooking show with a difference: High Cuisine, where two cannabis-infused chefs cook up vegan dishes, with some surprising results!

Going plant-powered isn’t about what you’re giving up, it’s about what you get. We can do so much good in the world, and it comes down to what we choose to put on our plates each day.
Eating vegan for one day saves one animal a day.
Choosing plants over meat makes a difference. Asher says, if you care about the world, your health, having enough food to feed the entire planet, social justice: eat more plants. Simple.
Your diet is your chance every day to reflect on yourself, your body, your surroundings. It’s more than just about your meal, it’s about the wider world.
