Long time vegan (2008) and animal rights supporter, Ellen Degeneres is among starts that will be featured on a new stamp honoring the 20 most famous vegetarians of all time. This is not the first time that Peta has honored Ellen, back in 2009 she was named Woman Of The Year along side Tim Gunn as Man Of The Year: “Their message that animals must be treated kindly and respectfully has reached scores of people, and many of them have changed their buying habits, all because Gunn and DeGeneres spoke up for the voiceless.”
This time, Ellen is honored along side Peta supporter, Sir Paul McCartney, Natalie Portman, Bob Barker, Woody Harrelson, Leona Lewis and many more.
The celebs have loaned their likenesses to the collection which will be released in the US on Tuesday, November 29th, 2011.
PETA believes the special edition stamps will highlight the true plight of animals in slaughterhouses and hopefully convince more people to give up eating meat. The stamps can be purchased next month at www.PETA.org.
