James Cameron & His Wife To Make Their School All-Vegan
James Cameron's vision of the future is not a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by avatars, no — we're just eating a lot more plants and a lot less meat.
The 60-year-old, Oscar-winning director and his wife Suzy Amis Cameron announced that the private school they founded in Calabasas, California, would be going completely vegan.
"In the fall of 2015, MUSE will be the only school we are aware of that is completely plant-based," Suzy Amis Cameron told the crowd at a party on February 19 for Amis' Red Carpet Green Dress campaign, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Then her husband jumped in to explain: "The average person would say vegan, but we say whole food, plant-based. It's about raising kids who don't think it's strange or exotic or worthy of a pat on the back to be doing the right thing for the living biosphere."
Suzy and her sister Rebecca, a child development expert, opened the MUSE School in 2006.
From preschool to high school, the students learn how to plant and harvest organic produce as part of their curriculum.
Their goal is to instill in children the importance of taking care of the environment right from the very beginning.
We hope schools nationwide will take a page out of the Camerons' book, as their menu is a lot healthier and much more eco-friendly than what we've seen at other schools across the country — plus, it isn't any more expensive.
What do you think of this (rather drastic) move?
