Bill Gates has always been an
innovator, so it’s no surprise that one of the brightest minds of our time is
tackling our most pressing environmental
. “We need more
options for producing meat without depleting our resources,”
he wrote on his blog.
His solution? Vegan
food. Bill is getting behind faux meats and eggs, which taste like the real
thing but don’t require
vast amounts of natural resources
for production. “Companies
like Beyond Meat and Hampton Creek Foods are experimenting with new ways to use
heat and pressure to turn plants into foods that look and taste just like meat
and eggs,” Bill wrote. “I tasted Beyond Meat’s chicken alternative
and was impressed. I couldn’t tell the difference between Beyond Meat and real chicken.”

Bill has been using Twitter to spread
the word about faux meats, and plenty of other brainy people joined in to
illustrate how smart it is to care about animals:

Greta Van Susteren shares with Bill
the honor of being one of Forbes’ Most Powerful People—and she also agrees that caring about animals just makes
sense. She took to her blog to protest the cruel and deadly cat experiments at her alma mater, the University
of Wisconsin–Madison

Gates and Steve-O might seem like an interesting pair, but they are certainly in agreement on
meat. Steve-O explained his feelings in his Huffington Post article “Crazy for Veggies:
“I’m convinced that of all the changes I’ve made to my lifestyle, it’s the adoption
of a vegan diet that has been best for me—physically, mentally, and certainly
spiritually. It’s benefited every area of my life.”

The computer whiz and the comedian are
in good company with Jessica
, Russell Brand, Kristen Bell, and Kristen Wiig, all of whom Celebuzz featured in an article about how “meat is so passé.” And
celebrity Mayim Bialik is helping New York Times readers
make their Passover Seder

An anonymous
person is helping animal advocate extraordinaire Sam Simon, who has been diagnosed with stage-four cancer, see how much everyone
appreciates him, with a “Thank

to know I have a great team of docs, traditional and alternative, and I plan on
beating the cancer. If you’d really like to thank me, please vow to never buy a
ticket to Sea World or Ringling Bros again! xo”

Please help show your appreciation for
Sam’s awesomeness by “liking”
