The PlantPure Communities (PPC) Pod Network emerged out of the 2015 film PlantPure Nation with the goal of creating and supporting a grassroots movement by empowering a network of independent local groups (Pods) and people to promote the benefits of a whole food, plant-based lifestyle. Pods can use the PlantPure Nation film, community-building online tools and events, and other resources in their outreach efforts. In November 2016, the Pod Network was transferred from PlantPure, Inc. and is now under the umbrella of the nonprofit, PlantPure Communities.
People join Pods to support one another and work together to spread the message of plant-based nutrition in their communities, as well as have fun and build friendships. Pod members may choose to educate others in their community on the connections of a plant-based lifestyle to our health, the environment, farming, animal welfare, and food and health inequities.
A cornerstone of the Pod Network is inclusiveness. People from all walks of life and at different stages in their wellness or plant-based journey have an open invitation to become a participant in the Pod Network at any time. To date, over 60,000 people are participating in close to 500 groups across the globe that are connected to the Pod Network. Participation is free, and offers support and networking opportunities to everyone interested in learning, incorporating, advocating and practicing a whole food, plant-based lifestyle.
Anyone can utilize the Pod website by registering on the site. As part of the registration, a personal account is automatically created. Each Pod has its own page on the Pod website, that the Group Leader administers. (Please note that not all Pods choose to use the Pod website to interact. For some, the site is simply a doorway which guides people to their Facebook or Meetup group page.) We encourage you to get involved with PlantPure Communities and the Pod Network!
We invite you to join a Pod in your neighborhood, create a new Pod, or register your existing group in the Pod Network. Gain support and support others by engaging with PlantPure Communities and the Pod website – and let’s support each other in our journey to improved health for ourselves, our family and friends, and our communities. WELCOME!!
