Grammy award-winning recording artist Mya has always looked absolutely amazing. One of her secrets to her all natural glow is her vegan diet. Many wine manufacturers are still using animal-based fining agents and there are only a select few vegan options when it comes to choosing a good wine. Mya has decided to launch her own vegan wine, The Planet 9 Fine Wine by Mya.
The product is now available on her online shop for shipping to select US states.
Planet 9 has a red cabernet sauvignon with plum infusions. Planet 9 and many other vineyards and wineries are beginning to switch over to plant-based fining agents due to increased consumer awareness and the mistrust of animal products.
Mya hopes that her wine promotes the vegan message specifically to fans who aren’t too familiar with the lifestyle. Hopefully, her consumers begin to do their own research on the vegan lifestyle and its benefits after seeing how its impacted her life.
Mya told The Root, “Some of the pros of veganism? Let’s start with clarity in the mental space, even spiritual connection with the rest of the world, environmentalism, it takes about 25,000 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef.” She created an online vegan transition guide for people who are unsure of switching over.
“[Veganism is] a lifestyle, it’s not just about diet, it’s about your home décor, your fashion, what you are driving, what you are wearing, all kinds of things. Everything that you already are used to and love, there is a vegan version. Or you can organize your meals, it’s a beautiful thing.” – Mya
