Love cats, dogs and sloths? Duh. But are you also a Green Monster interested in making a difference for animals and the planet? Do you spend all day on Reddit, Twitter, and Tumblr? If we sent you a photo of Beyoncé on an elephant would you know what to do with it? Awesome. We’re looking for buzz-obsessed and self-motivated writers/editors interested in everything from cute photos and videos to thought-provoking animal issues, and everything in between to join One Green Planet’s Buzz Monster  and Animal Monster categories.

We’re a platform for the growing compassionate and eco-conscious generation. We are the fastest growing (and 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 the biggest vegan/plant-based food and recipe site on the Internet with the largest vegan food app.
