About Us



One Green Planet is a platform for the growing compassionate and eco-conscious generation.

Our goal is to help create a world where we eat delicious food and use amazing products that provide us with maximum benefit and have minimum impact on the planet.

With over 6 million monthly unique visitors, we are the largest independent publishing platform focused on sustainable food, animal welfare issues, environmental protection, and cruelty-free/green living. If that’s not enough, we also just happen to be biggest vegan/plant-based food and recipe site on the Internet.



Take control of the damage being caused by animal agriculture and show the world how the fork can be an incredibly effective tool in the fight against climate change.

So #CrushPlastic

Reducing everyday plastics from our lives is not about giving up anything or sacrificing convenience, but rather learning to reap the maximum benefit from the items you use every day while having the minimum impact.

Chief Happiness Officer

What I do for you:

Firstly, how dare you? But if I must, as a yogini, I find myself often pondering life and the cycle it follows for all of us. We’re all interconnected. For example, when I see a squirrel happily scampering up a tree, a chain reaction begins in me that causes me to lose my ever loving mind. But then, you throw me a ball, and I’m like OMG! You see? Connections. Bottom line, I hold degrees in cuddling and belly rubs from UC BARKley and HOWLvard respectively, which makes me an expert in being the happiest being ever. I run a tight ship here, you’ll hear me bark loud and proud when you see me the first time but I offer tons kisses and snuggles to those that help my fellow furry-bottomed soldiers out on the field. Namaste.

I am the Editorial Manager for the Animal, Earth, Life, and Buzz channels and coordinate petition content, One Green Planet’s newsletter, and manage social media. I also manage audio production and content support for the #EatForThePlanet with Nil Zacharias podcast –hey, helping you connect the dots and take action for the planet is my thing!.

What I do for you:

My name is pronounced “seven”, now if that’s not awesome enough, then I can also tell you that I can code in seven languages, have seven meals a day, my workstation has seven screens and “Seven” is my favorite movie. But enough about me, right?! I am the guy who fixes problems that you didn’t know we had, in a way you don’t understand. I eat glitches for breakfast, battle code for lunch and deal with evils of 404 errors & slow loading times for dinner. I make the engine behind this monster-of-a-platform run smooth. I still have about 50 characters to go so here you go…Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, quam morbi, sed nunc. Vestibulum dictumst.

What I do for you:

I spend my time managing tasks, schedules, deadlines and maintaining processes to ensure you receive your favorite food features every day! When I’m not at my desk in the office, I’m drinking copious amounts of coffee, reading cliche teen romance novels, watching Gossip Girl or ordering a shot of unfiltered apple cider vinegar at the bar. I’m just trying to figure out how to navigate life as a vegan who also loves fashion and a good pair of boots!

It’s a tough job, filled with late-night vegan donut cravings and yearnings for beet burgers. I’m here to ply you with amazing plant-based recipes that are kind to you, animals and the planet. So, what are you waiting for?! Eat up!

What I do for you:

I’m a writer and editor who loves blueberries, burritos, and my cat, Billie. I spend my day looking for the interesting, funny, thought-provoking, or weird stories of the day, as well as writing and doing reporting for longer pieces about health education and food justice. In my free time I’m really into making stir-fries, doing yoga, and watching baby animal videos on YouTube.

I do graphics and social media as well as provide all kinds of editorial support to the team. In my free time, I love to walk around the city looking for plants or books, going to thrift shops, drinking way too much Kombucha, and writing!

I adore everything that creeps, crawls, slithers, trots, swims or flies. For every uplifting or harrowing animal-related story out there – wherever there is a reason to celebrate, or a reason to get up and help – I want to make sure you hear about it. I’m your animal police, if there is a creature who happens to be under threat because of human foolishness, I want to shout about it and get you all to do something about it. I consider it an honor to use my voice to help those who have none … and if I can do that while sighing over yet another adorable kitten video (hey, there can never be too many adorable kitten videos in this world, right?), all the better!

Jonathan Engels, One Green PlanetJONATHON ENGELS


If you’ve ever wanted to be that person who grows stuff themselves, comes up with clever ways to reuse things 100 times overs or awes your friends by DIY-ing everything, I’m the guy to help you. I’m here to teach you about permaculture, upcycling and green gardening all while spitting out tips on hacks like Eminem spits lyrics. The best part is, you don’t even need to tell your roommate that you got that wicked cool idea for turning an old school CD rack into a lid holder for your pots and pans from me. Just say you came up with it on your own, I don’t need the credit. I’m a giver like that.

Michelle Neff, One Green PlanetMichelle Neff


My finger is always on the pulse of what’s happening in the world of animals. Whether it’s bringing you the latest animal rights news or the absolute greatest precious baby piglet video that is currently breaking the internet, I am on it! Frankly, the world needs to shape up when it comes to caring for the feathered, furry, and scaly creatures that we share this magnificent planet with and I will not hold back until that happens! My goal is to inspire others to create a kinder world and empower them to take actions in big and small ways!

Arianna Pittman, One Green PlanetArianna Pittman


I’m here to bring you all of the most inspiring animal stories the world has to offer. I love nothing more than channeling my not-so-mild obsession with dogs into my stories. If there’s an awesome dog story out there that will make you smile and shed happy tears, I’m all over it. I want the world to know about all of the awesome heroes out there working to save animals and inspire others to do the same, whether it’s helping put an end to puppy mills, boycotting animal attractions or fighting to save marine life from plastic pollution. We can’t fix a problem unless we know it exists — and it helps if we also know how to fix it. Through writing, I hope to share information that will not only educate people, but give them the tools they need to take action!

Lauren Kearney, One Green PlanetLauren Kearney


If there is a problem in the world of animals or the environment, I am the first to jump right on it and write pieces that pull your heart-strings and make you want to stand up for change. I give a voice to the voiceless animals of the world and get people near and far to WAKE UP and take responsibility for all the wrongs we’ve wrought on innocent creatures. If I can help make the world a cleaner, kinder place – then I would consider my mission complete.
