Even if you’re not really into her music, it’s hard to ignore everything that Billie Eilish has done so far (she’s only 19, mind you) for the vegan cause, so we just wanted to take a moment and appreciate her! Billie Eilish, vegan since the age of 12, doesn’t think twice before using her fame and status to promote veganism and a more conscious life-style.
The super successful singer-songwriter has not only been speaking her mind freely about being vegan in any chance she’s had, giving a huge platform to some less mainstream ideas (which is already a lot), she’s also been making some actual changes in the world: only last month she made history when she agreed to wear an Oscar de la Renta dress to the Met Gala only if the famous fashion house would stop selling fur, a condition to which they amazingly agreed. She also worked in collaboration with Nike last month to create the first-ever vegan Air Jordans.
She worked with Woody Harrelson to create a video that urges their fans to take action during the climate crisis and avoid animal products, launched a sustainable vegan collection with H&M, and worked to feed vulnerable communities with vegan food during the rough early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a famous cover interview with Vogue earlier this year she said: "Once you know that kind of thing and you see it, it's really hard to go back, and now, even though I have lots of friends that eat dairy and meat and I don't ever want to tell anybody what to do, I just can't go on in my life knowing what's going on in the animal world and like, not doing anything about it". To us, what she’s done so far for veganism is absolutely priceless!
Thank you Billie, we love and appreciate you!
