30 celebrities you didn’t know were vegan – first version
Veganuary is now over, and many will be welcoming meat and dairy back into their diets.
However, some people – famous and normal – are vegan all year round. Why? Well, one individual can save 100 animals per year just by adopting a vegan diet and drastically lower their carbon footprint.
If you’re struggling to decide whether to go vegan for good, we’ve done some research and collated a bunch of celebs that have sworn off animal products.
Whether they’re ‘vanity vegans’, doing it for the environment, or animal lovers, vegans are everywhere – from vegans in the LGBT community (Simon Amstell, Ellen Page, Laverne Cox and Sara Gilbert), to movie stars like Michelle Pfeiffer and Woody Harrelson, and musicians including Bryan Adams and Stevie Wonder.
1. Courtney Act
Celebrity Big Brother contestant Courtney Act is, in her own words, “a Prius driving, vegan, pansexual, polyamorous, genderfluid, Burner hippy child who is passionate about human rights, the environment and Justin Bieber whom she one day hopes to marry”.
Back in 2015, she wrote on Twitter: “I am vegan because it’s better for me, better for the environment and better for the animals!”
