Lauren and Jorge Have Been Named the Cutest Vegans Alive for 2014!

Lauren
Age: 21
Hometown: Bellingham, WA

Lauren went vegan eight years ago after reading the book Skinny Bitch saying, "I live my life by the principles of respect and gratitude and what better way to be thankful for the life I've been given than by respecting my body and the lives of other living beings through plant-based living." A senior at Western Washington University, she still finds time to volunteer for animal charities, including Pigs Peace Sanctuary in Stanwood, Wash., and she raised more than $1,200 for the Central Washington Humane Society.

Jorge
Age: 16
Hometown: Miami, FL

Jorge went vegan about 18 months ago, and he has never looked back. With the support of the school's animal rights club, he helped bring more vegan options to his school's cafeteria by sitting down with the manager, who agreed to introduce veggie burgers, which have been a major hit. In addition to his on-campus activities, Jorge has talked several friends and family members into cutting down on meat or going vegan, volunteers at an animal shelter on weekends, and is active with peta2's Street Team.
