Kat Von D is very famous amongst vegans and vegetarians. Not only is she known for her popular beauty brand, Kat Von D Beauty, but she is also known for her cruelty-free lifestyle as well.
Kat Von D has committed herself to a vegan lifestyle, and she is always involved in the animal rights movement. Earlier this year, she announced that she would be reformulating her entire beauty brand to become 100% vegan, and she has even been awarded for her efforts during Farm Sanctuary‘s 2016 Gala, where she received the Compassion in Action Award.
Recently, this tattoo artist, model, entrepreneur and activist was interviewed by Mercy For Animals, who asked her how she got inspired to follow such a lifestyle. She responded:
“After being vegetarian for years, I stumbled upon the documentary Forks Over Knives. The straightforward information on food and its direct connection to the current state of the world’s bad health just hit home with me. After watching it, I never looked back.”
Kat Von D even admitted her “foolishness” towards thinking that veganism was just a diet. She realized that, in fact, veganism isn’t just about what you eat, but who you are as well.
“It may sound silly, but when I first made the transition to eating plant-based, I foolishly thought veganism was just about diet,” she said. “But the more I learned, the more it was obviously so much more than that.”
However, Kat Von D didn’t just describe her inspiration, but she also spoke words of wisdom.
“Veganism changed me. It taught me to look past myself – to consider how my choices affect others – the animals, the people around me, and the planet we live on. To me, veganism is consciousness.”
Kat Von D has joined several others who follow the vegan lifestyle, working hard to promote the rights of animals.
You can make a choice too. After all, by knowing about the food industry’s impact on the world, you are making a conscious effort to make the right decision regarding what you want to put into or on your body. At the end of the day, veganism isn’t just a diet, it’s a lifestyle.
