We Are VegNation®
Every day as more and more people choose to leave meat and dairy products off their plates, our VegNation® grows! Besides the obvious animal cruelty issues, the meat and dairy industries are responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector. Being vegan is good for animals, our planet, and our own health. VegNation® is a vegan clothing line designed by race car driver and environmental activist Leilani Münter. All VegNation® apparel is made in the USA with 100% solar power using eco-friendly, sustainable fabrics.
"Never underestimate a vegan hippie chick with a race car."
- Leilani Münter, biology graduate, race car driver, environmental activist and VegNation® founder
Leilani is a biology graduate, race car driver and environmental activist. Discovery's Planet Green named her the #1 eco athlete in the world, ELLE Magazine awarded her their Genius Award, and Sports Illustrated named her one of the top ten female race car drivers in the world. Since 2007, Leilani has been adopting an acre of rainforest for every race she runs. She uses her race car to spread environmental awareness among millions of race fans in the US. Leilani sits on the board of the Oceanic Preservation Society and the advisory board of The Solutions Project, and she is an ambassador for Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project. In 2014 her team became the first race team in history to power their pit box using 100% solar power. Leilani is featured in the 2015 documentary Racing Extinction. She went vegan in 2011 after being a vegetarian for most of her life. The solar panels on her home collect enough solar energy to power her home and charge her personal car, an electric Tesla Model S. Her home also has a 550-gallon rainwater collection tank which feeds her vegetable garden.
In 2017 Leilani made history when she raced the first ever vegan-themed race car in the world at Daytona International Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series. She was running in the top 5 in the final stages of the race, but with just 15 laps to go she was taken out by another race car that hit her. Leilani's race team gave away thousands of samples of vegan food to race fans, and the campaign reached over 150 million impressions online.
