Vegan women celebrities are a growing group in Hollywood, and that’s great news for animals, the planet, and the women who’ve opted to ditch meat.
In fact, interest in veganism on the whole is on the rise, and that’s likely at least partially due to the fact that famous women like Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry are experimenting with vegan diets.
The Google Search team recently confirmed to LIVEKINDLY that search interest in veganism reached an all-time high in the U.S. in November 2019, shortly after Kardashian first announced she was enjoying a plant-based diet. Even though search data fluctuates from year-to-year and even month-to-month, it’s clear that people are interested in veganism.
