Lewis Hamilton Urges Fans To Go Vegan “To Save Our Planet”

by | October 16, 2019

Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton told his 13.1 million Instagram followers that he believes the “only way to save our planet” is by adopting a vegan diet.

Hamilton, who has increasingly used his voice to advocate for veganism, referred to the world as a “messed up place” in a recent Instagram story. He stated that he wants his life “to mean something” and that “being a part of the issue is not meaningful. Being part of the solution is and I’m striving to do better.”

Telling of how the meat and dairy industries are a leading cause of a range of environmental issues, such as animal cruelty and deforestation, Hamilton urges his fans to “do some research” and “find the compassion I know you have within you.”

He continued to explain that “We were taught that eating animal products was good for us but we’ve been lied to for hundreds of years.”

Lewis Hamilton’s Vegan Diet

Since embracing veganism in 2017, Hamilton has publicly educated himself on animal welfare issues as well as the environmental impact of animal agriculture.

Striving to make a difference and encourage others to go plant-based, Hamilton has undertaken several animal-friendly ventures. Including partnering with Beyond Meat to open a vegan burger chain and collaborating with Tommy Hilfiger on a clothing line that features vegan leather footwear.
