About

Founders

Suzy Amis Cameron

A noted environmental advocate, mother of five and former actor, Suzy Amis Cameron is committed to the principles of sustainability in all aspects of our lives, with a focus on reducing our ecological footprint through plant-based eating. In 2006, Suzy founded MUSE School CA, with her sister Rebecca Amis, to prepare young people to live consciously with themselves, one another and the planet. In 2015, MUSE became the first school in the country that is 100% solar powered, zero waste, and with a 100% organic, plant-based lunch program, leading to the designation of the “Greenest Restaurant in the World.”
 
Suzy is also the Executive Director and a Founder of Plant Power Task Force, focused on showing the impact of animal agriculture on climate change and the environment, founded with her husband James Cameron and Craig McCaw. In Fall 2018, Suzy will publish, OMD: Swap One Meal a Day to Get Healthy, Live Longer, and Save the Planet, with Simon & Schuster’s Atria Publishing Group. To support the mission of the book, she will launch theOMD campaign to promote plant-based food solutions to climate change—a multi-pronged effort to transform eating habits and the food system.
 
She is also a founder of Cameron Family Farms and Food Forest Organics, a plant-based café and market in New Zealand, and Red Carpet Green Dress, showcasing socially and environmentally responsible fashions at the Academy Awards. Suzy has produced documentaries and serves on several nonprofit boards. As an actor she was featured in more than 25 films, including The Usual Suspects and Titanic. Her website can be found here.
