Ellen Launches Going Vegan Website

Ellen Launches Going Vegan Website

Talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres has launched a new website to help people who want to stop eating meat and animal products called Going Vegan with Ellen. The site provides recipes, tips, information on how to start becoming vegan, frequently asked questions, reasons for adopting such a diet, and book and movie suggestions.

She has done vegan cooking segments on her show, featuring things like Better Than Cheddar Vegan Nachos. The cheese is made from cashews.

Ellen went vegan in 2008, and even had a vegan wedding cake when she married Portia de Rossi, who also does not eat animals. Portia said, “Now I don’t judge other beings that way – every animal has its own intelligence and sensitivities. They’re all lovely, worthwhile, and deserving of our respect.” (Source:

The Environmental Working Group recently published a report on the environmental benefits of reducing or eliminating meat consumption.

DeGeneres is known for helping animals and has made donations to an animal shelter in the Los Angeles area called the Gentle Barn. Recently she rescued a stray kitten from an LA furniture store, and has promoted a charity auction featuring a lock of Justin Bieber’s hair which raised over $40,000 for the Gentle Barn.

It's more likely that Ellen won't have a lot of 'hands-on' in the website, but any way in which Veganism is promoted as a better lifestyle - and with whoever's backing...that's the way to go...

Veganism is a lifestyle, not just a way of eating. I think that she needs to readjust her thinking to include products that test on animals. Maybe she could watch another video (Earthlings convinced her to stop eating factory farmed meat) that would encourage her to stop endorsing animal testing in cosmetics as well. Hollywood is a superficial place indeed. If you want to write to Ellen to thank her for her vegan efforts and her contributions to a local animal shelter (or to encourage her to stop endorsing Cover Girl) you can do so here:

Great for Ellen and Miss Portia.
