Appeal to CEO of Travel Channel - healthy, vegan, vegetarian

This petition had 67 supporters

Almost 100% of the shows shown on the Travel Channel are meat and unhealthy food focused. In the past year of watching this channel, I have not seen any reference to the healthy food options available, in restaurants and street food.


First of all, I must say that I am a teen who has just completed her sophomore year in high school. I find your channel very fascinating, and I enjoy programs like Hotel Impossible, Mysteries at the Museum, Expedition Unknown, and Great Hidden Gem places to visit.

Also, I often watch the food shows on this channel. Although these shows are fascinating and have very charming hosts, I do not like how every single food shown and suggested is full of meat and grease. I am writing to you because many vegetarians like myself love your channel but get disturbed by programs that ignore showing vegetarian food or healthier food. The majority of foods shown in this program are meat filled and so greasy that it negatively impacts the health of anyone who eats it. We all, including your channel, has some social responsibility.

I am in pain to see so much of obesity, diabetics and health issues that are caused by unknowingly eating these foods. I understand the importance of showing what will attract the most customers to earn as much money possible, but, I feel that it is our social responsibility to educate people on the healthy options of food.

I enjoy sharing information like this through my blog and other ways to reach out to teens in various other ways. I request you to start with at least 10% of your airtime on healthy foods and vegetarian/vegan options. With your media power, we will be able to create a foundation for healthy life and enjoy the bizarre foods (your program name), meat or greasy food a little more in life because we will live longer by eating healthy.
