Animals, the planet, and your health—there are compelling reasons to go vegan in 2022. Here are 22 celebrity quotes that explain why vegan is the best choice you’ll ever make:
I’ve been vegan for over a decade, and for me, there’s nothing better for feeling your best and knowing you’re helping the planet and animals.
Even as a child, I felt very guilty about eating animals and never knew that there was something to do about it. And as I got older, it became clearer that there are things that I can do and choices I can make.
As a new vegan, I’m enjoying exploring flavors from plants & plant-based proteins! Every journey is personal & deserves to be celebrated.
We love to see @lizzo eating #vegan on her IG and TikTok!

I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-around happier person.
I don’t want to torture anything. I guess it’s about trying to live a life where I’m not contributing to the cruelty in the world. … While I am on this planet, I want everyone I meet to know that I am grateful they are here.
“The Meat and Dairy industry is the 3rd leading cause of climate change”
I’ve been a happy vegan for 14 years. I love the way it makes me feel! Thank you #JoaquinPheonix for speaking out on this. https://t.co/ZSgIJ0YyDH

It took me 10 days to drop my cholesterol. I lost 8lb, my blood pressure came down. In 10 days my skin cleared up and my breathing was right.
For many years I would go to sleep and wake up tired. That’s because my body was processing God knows what type of crazy, wicked sh*t .… [T]here’s a force, a dark force, out there that is doing a very good job of keeping us all sick.
I realised what goes on in the egg industry, and the dairy industry, so then I was like, “That’s it! Going vegan!”
My mom always said to treat others like you like to be treated. … [E]veryone wants to be … respected and treated in a loving way.
[It’s] the right thing for yourself and for the planet and animals.
I think whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re talking about the fight against injustice. We’re talking about the fight against the belief that one nation, one people, one race, one gender, or one species has the right to dominate, control, and use and exploit another with impunity. I think that we’ve become very disconnected from the natural world. And many of us, what we’re guilty of, is an egocentric worldview, the belief that we’re the center of the universe. We go into the natural world and we plunder it for its resources. We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow, and when she gives birth, we steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal, and I think we fear the idea of personal change, because we think that we have to sacrifice something, to give something up. But human beings, at our best, are so inventive and creative and ingenious, and I think that when we use love and compassion as our guiding principles, we can create, develop, and implement systems of change that are beneficial to all sentient beings and to the environment.
We are all animals of this planet. We are all creatures. And non-human animals experience pain sensations just like we do. They too are strong, intelligent, industrious, mobile, and evolutional.
I don’t need a dead animal or dead piece of flesh to go into my live body. There’s … nothing on this planet that doesn’t want to live.
I just can’t go on in my life knowing what’s going on in the animal world and not doing anything about it.
People make it seem like it’s so difficult …. I want to teach people how positive and easy it is to be vegan—I don’t want to make it seem like it’s this big feat.
I just try to figure out ways to just be a better version of myself. So when I did it, I went cold turkey. It was not a hard transition. [T]hat was actually the best decision that I made in my life. Because it allowed me to be at my most optimal health. Like I have the most clarity that I’ve ever had in my life. My level of frequency is just on a thousand. My vibration is always high and I see the difference.

[T]his pandemic seemed to come from people eating animals and it’s becoming more well known that eating animals is not the greatest thing for our health. … But to go vegan was just a decision, and I haven’t been preachy about it, but now, we’ve seen more of the effects of how eating animals has brought us to our knees as a species, I think it’s time to re-examine our world in a way that doesn’t abuse other species.

I think getting the information, watching the documentaries, really understanding the whole propaganda behind the meat industry and the animal industry in general—there’s so much corruption in it … gives you this mental clarity.
Every bit of meat, chicken, or fish you eat, every bit of leather or fur you wear, has come from an animal that has been tortured, pulled away from their families and brutally killed.

Eating a vegan diet—it’s just so much healthier and you could avoid a lot of toxins that could age your skin and your body.
Dexter Scott King
If you’re violent to yourself by putting things into your body that violate its spirit, it will be difficult not to perpetuate that [violence] onto someone else.
Son of Coretta Scott King and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dexter Scott King’s legacy as an activist and author stands on its own. Many may not know that King has been vegan since the 1980s. #BlackVegansWhoInspire #BlackHistoryMonth pic.twitter.com/R8SSsxhxQ3

Three times a day, I remind myself that I value life and do not want to cause pain to or kill other living beings. That is why I eat the way I do.
