More than 23,000 children in New Zealand are affected by having a parent in prison, with these children nine times more likely than their peers to end up in prison as adults — Pillars are working to break the cycle of crime by fostering connections between the children of prisoners and positive role models. Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were joined by Prime Minister @JacindaArdern as they presented Pillars Awards to young people involved in their programmes, to help assist them in achieving their goals. #RoyalVisitNZ #NewZealand #Auckland
A vegetarian since secondary school, the Singaporean actress and former singer is an advocate for green, eco-living and going meat-free. She says focusing her diet on mainly greens has helped live a healthier lifestyle.
The Duchess of Sussex is a self-confessed “part-time vegan”. She says she tries to eat vegan during the week so that she can have a little more flexibility with what she digs into on weekends. No word on whether she’s keeping up with her regimen during her pregnancy though.
“When I’m eating, I’m not hurting the planet, I’m not hurting other people on the planet, I’m not hurting other animals,” she told PETA about her vegan diet.
This Oscar-winning actress is a fierce animal rights advocate and has even made a documentary about the perils of eating meat. She had this to say when asked about being vegan: “There’s a reason that food, and food restrictions, are such a big part of every religion.”
Renowned Hong Kong singer and longtime Animals Asia supporter, Karen Mok has been a crusader for eating green for a long time now. The award-winning actress is also an ambassador for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The flame-haired actress started eating vegan in 2017 after noticing she had really low energy and some cholesterol problems. “In two weeks, I just had more energy than I’ve ever had in my life,” she reveals.
Russel Brand & Alec Baldwin
English comedian, Russel Brand, went vegan in 2011 after he watched a documentary which explored how plant-based foods help cleanse your system and protect it from disease.
30 Rock alum, Alec Baldwin, is also a vegan. He was diagnosed with pre-diabetes more than 5 years ago and decided to turn his life around by adopting a new diet.
Canto-pop star, Kay Tse, is a longtime vegetarian and has been extremely vocal about her love for a plant-based lifestyle. She encourages her fans to also eat more greens and is married to another vegan (her husband is singer Louis Cheng).
The pop star chose to go completely vegan in 2013. “I love animals more than I love most people, not kidding,” she says but she does admit that eating out can be hard.
Not only is Sandra a vegan but she is also an activist. A few years ago, she took the entire cast of Grey’s Anatomy out for a plant based lunch in attempt to convert them to veganism!
