Whether it's promoting #MaskUp campaigns or urging people to get vaccinated — there's no denying the power of a celebrity voice. Since we're constantly trying to emulate their trendsetting style or latest hairdo, it's fairly certain that when our favourite celebs advocate things like going vegan or being sustainable, we're bound to get inspired.
Veganism is a way of living that rejects all forms of exploitation and cruelty to animals, not just food but also clothing, beauty, or any other purpose. Studies suggest that plant-based proteins are a lot healthier than their meat counterparts — not just for you but for our planet too. Going vegan has a lot more benefits for the environment than you'd think. Livestock farming is commonly associated with a large carbon, and water footprint, not to mention the horrors animals go through to obtain their meat. A plant-based vegan diet could prevent habitat loss and phenomenally reduce the stress on water and carbon emissions.
Fortunately, these celebrities have realised just how life-changing the experience of converting to veganism can be, and now you can follow suit too!1. Ariana Grande
In case you didn't know, this Grammy award-winning starlet has officially bid 'Thank you, next' to an animal-derived diet in favour of a plant-based one ever since 2013. She made the announcement through a cheerful Tweet that said, "I've eaten organically since I was little and always kept meat minimal but today marks my first day as a 100% Vegan!!!! Joyous day," and she hasn't looked back ever since.2. Benedict Cumberbatch
Known for his memorable roles as Sherlock and Dr. Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch was crowned as PETA's Most Beautiful Vegan Celebrities of 2018. In a Marvel promotion tour the same year, Cumberbatch attributed his vegan diet to how he got in shape for the role.3. Serena Williams
Winner of more Grand Slam singles titles than any other man or woman, tennis legend Serena Williams adopted the vegan lifestyle back in 2012. Serena's love for the vegan lifestyle also extends to fashion, where she has launched a range of vegan leather pieces as a part of her S by Serena activewear line.4. Madelaine Petsch
Better known for her role as Cheryl Blossom on the hit Riverdale series, Madelaine Petsch has been raised on a vegan diet from a very young age. In an interview with Elle magazine, she claimed that she was "lucky to grow up with two incredibly environmentally-aware parents, who ingrained these thoughts in her."5. Joaquin Phoenix
A devout outfit repeater on the red carpet and sustainability advocate, Joaquin Phoenix is no stranger to our lineup of conscious celebrities that we look up to for inspiration. The Joker actor has been a vegan since he was three years of age and has constantly voiced his opinions against animal cruelty. He has also reportedly made it a point to wear vegan leather when shooting for a movie that required him to wear leather jackets.
