Is Bindi Irwin Vegan? The Star Adheres to a Healthy, Nutritious Diet

Conservationist and media personality Bindi Irwin entered the spotlight at age 2 with an appearance on Crocodile Hunter Diaries, and there’s been no way of stopping her ever since. 

Bindi uses her platform to educate her followers about the importance of looking after wildlife. Her enthusiasm for saving animals knows no bounds — but some have wondered is she vegan?

Bindi and Chandler Powell released a line of vegan candles when they got married.

In a 2018 interview with The Sun, Bindi explained that her go-to breakfast is a bowl of brown rice with vegetables. As she told the outlet, she tends to drink cups of tea throughout the day. 

In 2019, she launched “Wild By Nature,” her specialty tea line in collaboration with Tea Tonic, an Australian company.

Bindi and husband Chandler Powell released “Unwined Bindi & Chandler Candle,” a line of vegan and cruelty-free candles made in collaboration with the Australian brand, Unwined Candle Co., on the occasion of their wedding in the spring of 2020.

In a 2001 interview with Scientific American, Bindi’s late dad, Steve, revealed that the family eats meat — which received mixed responses. 

“I went through a big stage of my life where I thought, you know, maybe it would be better to be a vegetarian, so I researched it. In no uncertain terms did I research it,” Steve told the outlet. 

“Let’s say this represents one cow, which will keep me in food for, let’s say, a month. Now that cow needs this much land and food. Well, you can imagine, that cow needs x by x amount of land, and you can grow trees in it. Around that cow, you can have goannas, kangaroos, wallabies. […],” he added.

“If I was a vegetarian, to feed me for that month, I need this much land, and nothing else can grow there. Herein lies our problem. If we level that much land to grow rice and whatever, then no other animal could live there except for some insect pest species. Which is very unfortunate,” he went on to say.
