Sir Paul McCartney

If anyone wants to save the planet, all they have to do is just stop eating meat. That’s the single most important thing you could do. It’s staggering when you think about it. Vegetarianism takes care of so many things in one shot: ecology, famine, cruelty.

~Sir Paul McCartney, singer-songwriter, composer (b. 1942)
Mayim Bialik

To me, being vegan is a way of making the world better, one meal at a time.

~Mayim Bialik, actress, author, neuroscientist (b. 1975)
