Detailed Information:
The EarthSave Foundation was started in the United States in 1987 by John Robbins as a result of overwhelming response to his book, "Diet for a New America."

EarthSave Canada grew out of the excitement generated by a presentation by John in Vancouver in the fall of 1989. At about the same time, EarthSave organizations were being established across Canada, particularly in Ontario and Quebec. EarthSave was legally incorporated as a nonprofit society in British Columbia on March 1, 1990. With yet another visit by John that month, the resulting media coverage gave EarthSave Canada a tremendous boost and membership began to grow.

After six years of steady growth, affiliation with EarthSave International became official at the Annual General Membership meeting in May of 1996. We now boast a membership base of over 500, an office and resource library, 2 part-time office employees, and are poised for continued growth into the future.
