Vegans, like vegetarians, do not eat meat. However, vegans are more strict and will not even eat animal by-products such as dairy foods. Jobs first became a vegan after an enlightening trip to India in 1974.
PETA praised Jobs for his vegetarianism and his support of animals through the "Pixar film studio [that] created heartwarming and thought-provoking movies about unlikely animal heroes."
They said of Jobs, "If his movies or his lifestyle inspired even one person to become a vegetarian, he no doubt saved hundreds of animals' lives, and for that we thank him."
Honoring the greener moments in Jobs' career with Apple, TreeHugger praised him for withdrawing Apple from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce because of the organization's climate change denial.
Oct. 7, 2010, Alicia Silverstone posted a cool article on her website, "The Kind Life". The article is entitled "Vegan Dudes are Smart":
"Vegan writer Victoria Moran recently wrote an article in the Huffington Post about some major guys in the business world who are vegans!
Included in the list are Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone – all 3 of these guys are listed in the top 10 of Vanity Fair’s “100” Most Influential People! Vegan guys are smart!! (We also recently learned that former President Bill Clinton has adopted a vegan diet)."
Here is a big veggie-heart for all of you vegetarians and vegans:
