Molloy staff in Sustainability film

By BWW News Desk
The Sustainability Institute's communications director Demosthenes Maratos, is featured in this film.According to the filmmakers Andersen and Kuhn, COWSPIRACY: THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today - and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

The film features the The Sustainability Institute's communications director Demosthenes Maratos, who was asked to appear in the film after meeting filmmaker Kuhn at a vegan & plant based ideology conference in NYC in 2013. "We discussed his plans for the film and my work incorporating concepts of sustainability into the curriculum and culture at Molloy College," said Maratos. "He was interested in the fact that I am vegan, and what I had to say about working in the field of environmental advocacy for decades."

"The film is fast-paced, fascinating documentary that reveals the massive environmental destruction caused by raising animals for food," said Maratos. "I'm honored to have been interviewed for this film, and contributed to its message. It is a must-watch film for everyone. An empowering and inspiring journey of discovery about how and why environmental groups and government agencies ignore animal agriculture's catastrophic impact on our climate, as well as on our oceans, rainforests, wildlife, water supplies, and air quality."

The mission of The Sustainability Institute at Molloy College is to serve as a core resource on environmental excellence, and to promote positive solutions that advance the three dimensions of sustainability, economy, environment and social equity, for both the students & faculty of Molloy College and for the larger Long Island community of which Molloy is a part.
