EarthStream, A New Streaming Platform Supports Animal Welfare & Environmental Nonprofits By Presenting Powerful TV Shows & Films
As the planet faces unprecedented challenges, EarthStream provides an essential new digital streaming world that includes powerful and impactful narratives that can change how people view animals and the environment. The new platform features hundreds of shows, with new content streaming every month.
With a unique “giving back” business plan, EarthStream allows subscribers to attribute a portion of their monthly fee to an animal or environmental protection nonprofit. Available to English-speaking territories via a $5.99 USD monthly or $59.99 USD annual subscription, the platform donates 25-30% of subscription revenue to select nonprofits. Some content will be available to watch for free without a subscription.
EarthStream provides a collaborative space for like-minded filmmakers, nonprofits, and changemakers, while allowing viewers to connect the dots between them as they all work together to create positive change for our planet.
“Our incredible compassion-driven team feels so empowered by our model of giving to nonprofits, giving has been at the heart of EarthStream since our inception. For those visiting our homepage EarthStream.app to subscribe, visitors must pause and choose what organization they want their subscription to support. For those that learn about us through a non-profit, they feel good knowing that they are supporting the critical work that they do. This is a win-win all around,” EarthStream Co-Founder, Craig Swanson, told WAN. “As we continue to grow, so will the impact that we are able to make in this world.”
EarthStream’s diverse library of shows includes a wide range of eclectic and award-winning films, including: Dr. Paula Kahumbu’s Wildlife Warriors, Naomi Call’s Called to Rescue, Philippa Wilkson’s The Elephant in the Room, Erin Parks’ Finding Shelter, Tom Reissmann’s The Grizzly Truth, and Beasts and Witches, a series featuring drawings by John Howe, (Artistic Director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit). India-based wildlife filmmaker and writer, Gunjan Menon’s, The Firefox Guardians, is also available on the streaming platform.
“We are excited about EarthStream because it has significant power, not just to educate, but to make real change for animals, people, and the planet,” said Fleur Dawes of In Defense of Animals. “Thanks to EarthStream, it is now possible to enjoy beautiful, informative content, and at the same time, feel good that you are personally making a difference.”
The platform also partnered with Kenyan-based non-profit Wildlife Direct, headed by Dr. Paula Kahumbu. EarthStream will be working alongside Kahumbu to provide a platform for original content from filmmakers from across Africa. Kahumbu is widely recognized as one of Africa’s best-known wildlife conservationists. She is also a trustee of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Maun Science Park Botswana.
EarthStream’s collaboration with Switch4Good, founded by Olympic medalist, Dotsie Bausch, will help support them in their work as they create a plant-based playbook for the International Olympic Committee. The playbook will be distributed to 206 committees, 30,000 dietitians, 164,800 coaches, and 10 million athletes worldwide.
EarthStream is built on world-class technology with an experienced team behind it that has created global solutions for the entertainment industry and non-profit world. The streaming platform will be available via its website, Apple TV, iOS, Android TV, Android, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.
EarthStream has ongoing plans to expand with original short and long-form content and reality-based programs to entertain, educate, and inspire the world.
