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


Singer and songwriter Billie Eilish’s massive platform has provided her with 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 swirl of Bliss Chocolate and Prana Peanut Butter from Yoga-urt (Eilish’s favorite combo) and a long list of all the reasons we have loved her for more than just her soul music. From the launch of a vegan chocolate bar to an iconic fashion designer’s belief to ditch fur for good, here are nine ways Billie Eilish is an absolute vegan gem.

1 She became vegan at the age of 12

Undoubtedly influenced by her mother, activist and celebrity in her own right, Maggie Baird, said Eilish Vogue that she became vegan at the age of 12. After learning of the atrocities of the meat and dairy industries, she was unable to erase this grim 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 is recruiting new vegans

Eilish said she doesn’t want to tell others what to do, but she hasn’t hesitated about being vegan either, and she will speak up where appropriate. In response to the horrors leaked by the Fair Oaks Farms secret investigation, the then teenager took to social media and did not soften her opinion. To her 26 million Instagram followers then (she has up to 97.8 million now), she captioned, “I keep quiet about this most of the time because I think everyone should eat and say what he wants… and I don’t feel the need to push what I believe in, in anybody’s face, but man… if you can watch the videos I just posted and don’t fuck that it is you who are contributing by literally eating the creatures that are completely tortured just for your pleasure, I am sorry for you. I understand that the meat tastes good … and I know that you think you are one nobody and it won’t make a difference if you quit but it’s ignorant and stupid. If you have half a brain you have to know that “one person” adds up. Be smarter.

3 She makes fantastic vegan cookies

We know because we have tried them. With just seven pantry ingredients, the star kind of conjured up vegan magic and created some surprisingly good peanut butter chocolate chip cookies that just happen to be gluten-free. Don’t believe us? Try the recipe for yourself. There is no excuse not to do this, as you probably have the ingredients on hand. It’s cookie season, anyway.

She’s been on SNL twice

First as a musical guest in 2019 and more recently as a host and musical guest on December 11, 2021, Eilish has graced the Saturday Night Live stage more in her 20 years than many artists have twice as many. aged. While she admitted in multiple media outlets that she was extremely nervous to host, we really enjoyed the episode and loved that she didn’t take herself too seriously, even when she did. let out a few involuntary snickers.

She convinced Oscar de la Renta to give up fur

This feat alone could represent the life of a lifetime working vegan nonprofit. How did the young influencer fare? She issued an ultimatum to Alex Bolden, Oscar de la Renta’s managing director. She would wear her designer dress at the 2021 Met Gala, on the condition that the brand ditch the fur altogether. Bolden obliged, and Eilish stunned the gala by wearing a gorgeous nude tulle all-vegan dress with a 15ft train.

6 She teamed up with Nike to create vegan shoes

A fan of Nike’s Air Jordans since he was a child, Eilish worked with the brand to create a vegan take on this classic style. Made with 20% recycled material, Eilish brand Jordans come in two colors, which may not match her hair color. 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

Searching for a gift ? Eilish’s sweet and spicy vegan scent just might be. Launched in fall 2021, the celebrity has played a role in everything from scent notes to the design of the bottle. We’ve had a puff and think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at its complexity – it’s definitely not the sweet, cloying scent you’d expect from a 19-year-old.

She has her own vegan chocolate bar

If given the chance, who wouldn’t want their own line of vegan chocolate? As a limited-time promotion for his latest job Happier than ever, Eilish lent the name of the album to a bar of vegan and organic 35% cocoa milk chocolate. If you’re reading this on her birthday, you haven’t missed it. Pre-order on the star’s website; the expedition begins on December 28.

9 She is a donor

We have to assume that Eilish inherited his generous spirit from his mother. From supporting the now nationwide vegan hunger relief initiative, Support + Feed, to delivering plant-based flowers and donuts to essential workers on Mother’s Day, Eilish seems to be seizing every possible opportunity to give back and spread some vegan joy. Her fame continues to grow, but it is good to know that she keeps her feet on the ground not only by donating money, but also precious time, to those in need.
