Veganism is no longer a way of life reserved just for a select few who want an alternative lifestyle. Over the last few years, it has definitely become more mainstream, with consumers choosing to stay clear of animal products for both health and lifestyle reasons.
So popular is veganism that many celebrities have embraced it. Here are just a few:
One of the original Hollywood vegans, 55-year-old Woody Harrelson has lived without meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, and other products made from animals for many years.
He turned to veganism in an attempt to try “to live harmoniously” and can be credited with influencing heartthrob actor Liam Hemsworth, nearly 30 years his junior, to this way of living.
Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most popular personalities in the US, so her ditching animal products has done a lot to boost awareness of this lifestyle, as well as animal cruelty campaigns.
Another long-standing vegan, Alicia Silverstone is a strong animal rights activist and speaks out regularly in Hollywood about her free-from life.
She has previously said: “Nothing’s changed my life more. I feel better about myself as a person, being conscious and responsible for my actions.”
Proving that veganism is a popular choice among young people too, 29-year-old Ellen Page has embraced the lifestyle wholeheartedly.
She often uses Facebook and Twitter to showcase her opinions against factory farming and was awarded the title of sexiest vegan/vegetarian celebrity of the year by PETA in 2014.
