Alicia Silverstone – American actress (Clueless):
My whole world has changed. And I feel happier and I feel really grateful and inspired.
Rory Freedman – New York Times bestselling author:
Because I love them, and I care about them.
John Salley – 4-time US National Basketball Association champion:
Changed my life; one, I’m healthier.
Persia White – American actress (Girlfriends):
It actually benefits the entire planet.
Neal Barnard – Founder and President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine:
And we now know that animal agriculture is the biggest contributor to climate change.
Peggy McCay –Emmy Award-winning US actress (Days of Our Lives):
They feel as we feel. And it’s not good for the human soul and for the world, for us to mistreat them.
Jane Velez-Mitchell – Emmy Award-winning television journalist (CNN):
It's up to all of us to speak up for the animals. They have no voice and there are terribly, horrifically cruel things being done to them on a daily basis that are absolutely unnecessary. And they are also very bad for human health. I think we are on the cusp of a huge revolution in eating, and people are really starting to wake up to the cruelty in factory farming.
Eliza Roberts – Actress, casting director & author:
We are vegan, as you would be if you went and saw what happens to animals when they are prepared for food. It is absolutely, should be against the law. It's just the most heartbreaking thing in the world. So no one should be eating animals. Everyone should be saving and rescuing animals instead. And vegan food is delicious on top of that.
Eric Roberts – Oscar nominated actor:
I am vegan because it's the healthiest way to eat. So I’m vegan, and you should be too.
I just think it's really important to eat the healthiest you can, if you know what's healthiest for you. It's obviously a non-animal diet.
If you love animals, the first thing you should do is to stop eating them, not the last thing.
You know the old paradigm “we are what we eat”
I stopped eating meat seven years ago, felt really good and you should try exploring more vegetarian options too.
The biggest impact that we can have on our planet is through our food choices and what we haveon our plate.
There’s no question that the number one contributor to climate change is livestock production. The quickest way to make an effect is to immediately start on a vegan diet. It also happens to be delicious and good for your health so it’s a win-win.
One of the reasons I became vegan is the golden rule, the idea of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you. The best way to increase my happiness and also hopefully increase the happiness of others is actually be concerned for the wellbeing of other people and other animals, so that’s a big part of my veganism as well.
Kenneth G. Willams
My name is Kenneth G. Williams. I’m the world’s first vegan body builder champion and national spokesperson.
The 21 century athlete... if he wants to move further in his and her development, they're going to have to come to grips with eating properly.
We have the power to really imagine the future and to affect it, if we want to.
I believe we need to treat all life with incredible respect.
Every decision that we can make every day, it’s going to make a difference to the planet.
A vegan diet, everybody wins, really. All the Earthlings win on that one.
Rajendra K. Pachauri
If we have to follow what Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” then we have to start with ourselves. And one way that we can make a major difference is to reduce our meat consumption.
It’s a win, win, win situation. It’s good for the environment, it’s good for people, it’s good for animals.
Ten billion farm animals are killed every single year in America and that's one million animals per hour. That's astounding. One million animals per hour are slaughtered for food and that really disturbs me.
So considering all these aspects, it’s better to switch to vegetarianism; it will bring back nature’s harmony and has purifying effects.
To me, we don't have a right to be cruel to anything or anyone; the environment,
the animals, each other, our families.
Debra Wilson Skelton
Animals give nothing but pure love, pure joy.
We're both vegan. We practice compassion in ways that inform who we are, in our lives.
Wait a minute! I’m getting mild momentary amusement out of the flavors and feels of these products, and other animals are being tortured and losing their lives over it.
Does that weigh out? - torture and loss of life over a few seconds of amusement.
I mean it just doesn’t weigh. And I just thought “You know, I’m not gonna do it.”
I stopped; I just stopped.
Neal D. Barnard
Plant-based diets used to be thought of, as something that only philosophers would have.
Well, now we know that they're good for everybody and especially good for kids because
it keeps them slim and healthy.
There are so many different reasons to go vegetarian. There’s the health angle,
the nutrition angle, the cruelty that the animal faces. We have the environmental issue where it’s a huge impact on the environment. and the number one way
you can go green is become a vegan.
The process opens your mind; it opens your heart. It connects you to the planet through these animals, through what you eat. The vegetarian consciousness is a higher consciousness.
