Mena Suvari: “I’ve been vegan for almost 10 months now & I went completely cruelty-free”
Mena Suvari was recently featured in Stylish and spoke about her newfound vegan and cruelty-free lifestyle.
The actress, best known for her role in American Beauty, stated:
“I’ve been vegan for almost 10 months now and I went completely cruelty-free in my life even with my beauty products and my whole wardrobe. I feel really good making the personal changes that I did and I’ve always loved fashion, so I wanted to make it a point, for whatever it’s worth, and show people that you can have fun with sustainable fashion and that it’s possible.”
“When I went vegan, I was sort of like, ‘Why am I carrying this dead animal on my arm? It doesn’t feel good.’ You’re doing a good thing for the environment, you’re doing a good thing for animals and you’re saving a lot of money. I love being able to feel good in what I’m wearing!”
In terms of veganism and plant-based living becoming more mainstream, Suvari noted:
“It’s nice to see companies coming out more and I think it’s a beautiful thing. I hope people tap into the right reasons of why they’re doing it, but regardless, they’re doing it. And if it’s because they think it’s a trend, they’re still doing it and it’s good. I think we’re creating a bigger consciousness.”
