Watch: Vegan Stereotypes VS Actual Vegans
By Winona Wee, 27 Aug 2015
More people have been switching to plant-based diets like veganism for various reasons. Just last year, Beyonce and Jay Z tried out a 22-day vegan diet.
Additionally, the number of vegans in the US has doubled since 2009, and continues to grow exponentially. However, the impression that vegans are tree-hugging lovers who scorn meat-eaters is still a widely held belief.
In an effort to debunk vegan stereotypes, BuzzFeed has created a video to illustrate the differences between vegan stereotypes and actual vegans.
For those who are not familiar with the term, a vegan diet is a diet that does not include meat or any animal products. This also extends to not using products made from animals such as fur and leather.
