11 ways Billie Eilish is paving the way for a vegan future


Singer and songwriter Billie Eilish’s massive platform has given her the opportunity to do more vegan advocacy than we could even hope to accomplish in our lifetime. The international celebrity turns 20 on December 18, and we’re celebrating with a whirlwind of Yoga-urt’s Chocolate Bliss and Peanut Butter Prana vegan fro-yo (Eilish’s favorite combo) and a long list of all the reasons we love her. love his soulful music for more than just. From launching a vegan chocolate bar to convincing an iconic fashion designer to ditch fur for good, here are 11 ways Billie Eilish is an absolute vegan gem.

1 She became a vegan at 12

No doubt influenced by her mother, Maggie Baird, an activist and celebrity in her own right, Eilish said vogue that she became a vegan at the age of 12. After learning of the atrocities of the meat and dairy industries, she could not erase this sad reality from her mind. It takes a special 12-year-old girl to make that connection, and we’re so glad she did.

2 She recruits new vegans

Eilish said she doesn’t want to tell others what to do, but she’s also not shy about speaking up about her veganism and will speak up when appropriate. In response to the horrors revealed by the Fair Oaks Farms undercover investigation, the then-teenager took to social media and did not water down her opinion. To her 26 million Instagram followers at the time (she’s at 104 million now), she captioned, “I keep my mouth shut most of the time about this because I believe everyone should eat and say what he wants.. and i don’t feel the need to push what i believe in, in anyone’s face, but man.. if you can watch the videos i just posted and not care about the fact that you are the one contributing by literally eating the creatures that are completely tortured just for your enjoyment, I feel sorry for you. I get that meat tastes good… and I know you think you’re just one person and it won’t matter if you quit but that’s ignorant and stupid. If you have half a brain, you should know that “one person” adds up. Be smarter.

3 She makes fantastic vegan cookies

We know, because we’ve tried them. With just seven pantry ingredients, the star somehow conjured vegan magic and created surprisingly good vegan peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies that just happen to be gluten-free. Don’t believe us? Try the recipe for yourself. There’s no excuse not to, because you probably have the ingredients on hand.

She’s been on SNL twice

First as a musical guest in 2019 and most recently as a host and musical guest on Dec. 11, 2021, Eilish has graced the Saturday Night Live stage more in her 20s than many artists twice her age. . Although she admitted in several outlets that she was extremely nervous about hosting, we really enjoyed the episode and loved how she didn’t take herself too seriously, even when she let escape a few involuntary chuckles.

5 She took to Capitol Hill to support a federal vegan school lunch program

The Grammy winner is no stranger to using her platform for good, so it was no surprise she took a detour on her world tour to support the Healthy Future Students and Earth Act, a bill that would make plant-based school meals more accessible. to students across the country. “I’m proud to champion this legislation that will help fight climate change, tackle food insecurity and promote health equity,” Eilish said.

She convinced Oscar de la Renta to give up fur

This feat alone could equal the entire working life of a vegan nonprofit. How did the young influencer succeed? She issued an ultimatum to Alex Bolden, the managing director of Oscar de la Renta. She would wear their designer dress to the star-studded 2021 Met Gala provided the brand ditched fur altogether. Bolden agreed, and Eilish stunned the gala by wearing a gorgeous all-vegan nude tulle dress with a 15-foot train.

seven She turned London’s O2 arena vegan

If anyone can turn an entire arena into a vegan-only haven, it’s Eilish. In honour of Overheated, the singer’s six-day climate action event, the O2 arena has removed all animal products. Attendees were anything but disappointed as Impossible Foods exceeded expectations with plant-based entrees such as the Impossble Sausage Kofta and the Impossible Chicken Parmigiana.

8 She’s teamed up with Nike to create vegan kicks

A fan of Nike’s Air Jordans from a young age, Eilish worked with the brand to create a vegan take on the classic style. Made with 20% recycled materials, Eilish’s signature Jordans come in two colors, which may not coincidentally match her hair colors. One, Ghost Green, represents Eilish’s old neon green hue; the other, a nude taupe, matches her recent platinum look.

Its vegan scent smells good

Are you looking for a gift? Eilish’s sweet-but-spicy vegan flavor just might be. Launched in the fall of 2021, celebrity has been involved in everything from fragrance notes to bottle design. We had a whiff and think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by its complexity – it’s definitely not the sweet, cloying flavor you’d expect from a 19 year old.

She has her own vegan chocolate bar

Given the chance, who wouldn’t want their own line of vegan chocolate? As a limited-time promotion for his latest work Happier than ever, Eilish gave the name of the album to a vegan and organic milk chocolate bar with 35% cocoa. The sweet confection quickly sold out, but it’s back in stock to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

11She’s a donor

We have to assume that Eilish inherited her giving spirit from her mother. Whether it’s supporting the now national vegan hunger initiative, Support + Feed, or dropping off flowers and plant-based donuts to essential workers on Mother’s Day, Eilish seems to grasp every opportunity she can to give back and spread some vegan joy. Her fame continues to grow, but it’s good to know that she stays anchored not only by donating money, but precious time, to those in need.
