Culture club Carpe Vegan has commenced a countdown of the “Vegan 100,” a list that the group describes as “a celebration of the multifarious aspects of vegan culture and all the interesting people who are helping to grow it through their efforts.” For the next week, Carpe Vegan will be revealing 10 people on the list each day until the countdown is complete on July 29. Contending figures included vegan or “veganish” authors, celebrities, activists, entrepreneurs, and bloggers, and the jury assessed 12 different attributes to make the final cut. Among those unveiled so far are rocker Joan Jett, Daiya inventors Andre Kroecher and Greg Blake, and Twitter Co-founder Biz Stone.
