Adopting veganism in 2014, Stevie Wonder now swears by a plant-based lifestyle. His change in diet even helps him in promoting environmental issues and being kind to the environment.

As a seven-year-long dedicated vegan, Billie Eilish transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle after educating herself about the meat and dairy industries.

Natalie, a UCLA senior studying English and Film, moved to LA from Ontario, Canada, and now considers herself a full-fledged Southern Californian, loading up on tacos and guac, tanning at the beach, and blasting YG’s discography any opportunity she gets.
