VegNews magazine has released their picks for “Top Veg Stories of the Decade” list — and Ellen DeGeneres going vegan has made the cut. From the article,

After hinting at her new cruelty-free lifestyle at a Prop. 2 fundraiser, comedienne and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres officially announced her commitment to veganism at the 2009 Genesis Awards. In the months to follow, DeGeneres hasn’t wasted any time sharing her cruelty-free lifestyle with viewers—around 3 million of them—with vegan guest chefs, factory farming coverage, a veg lunchtime blog, and an entire section of her website dedicated to living the veg life.

Other events making the cut include Wayne Pacelle being named CEO of HSUS in 2004, Prop. 2 being passed in 2008, and Whole Foods’ CEO John Mackey going vegan in 2003. To see the complete list, jump here.
