Veg Celebrities Making A Difference

Russell Simmons and Stella McCartney are back in the news for their continued efforts for animals.

Both Russell Simmons and Stella McCartney have made headlines recently for their animal-friendly motives. Simmons recently announced that his hip-hop pop culture website GlobalGrind supports a worldwide ban of fur and will no longer allow any pictures of fur to be posted onto the website. Simmons says, “For as long as I run the company and hold the title of CEO of GlobalGrind, I will make sure that we edit out any fur that appears in our fashion editorials.” McCartney is making news for her recent announcement to provide scholarships to animal-friendly fashion students who meet specific academic and financial requirements. In addition to the Stella McCartney Scholarship’s financial component, McCartney will give scholarship recipients the chance to gain experience at her company for one year.
