Olympic Medalists Team Up With Vegan Brand Silk To Promote Plant-Based Diet
Olympic athletes Aly Raisman and Michael Phelps have teamed up with vegan dairy alternative brand Silk to promote plant-based eating.
The duo will feature on Silk’s Soymilk cartons, and will also be sharing vegan recipes and healthy eating tips online.
To celebrate the campaign, Raisman, Phelps and Silk have collaboratively donated $150,000 to Feeding America — a US-based hunger relief organization.
“Whether people are working out at home to stay fit or training for a more serious athletic endeavor, they’re reaching for soymilk,” said Domenic Borrelli, president of plant-based food and beverages at Silk.
“We’re excited to welcome Michael and Aly into the Silk family to educate consumers about the nutritious role soymilk can play in Americans’ diets, and give back to people in need during this time with Feeding America.”
