I am really excited to announce that my new PETA campaign “Save the World, Try Vegan” has finally been released. Anybody who knows me understands just how much this means to me. I have been a huge fan of PETA for many years and I will always credit them for helping to educate me, inspire me a huge part of my conversion to a Vegan diet over 7 years ago.
Posing for a PETA campaign has always been on my bucketlist. I am so happy to have been
being given the opportunity to raise awareness for a cause I so passionately believe in. To pose for a PETA campaign and join the likes of Paul McCartney, Khloe Kardashian and Anna Nicole Smith has been a true honour.
The “Save the world, Try Vegan” campaign is very close to my heart, as I have always been an animal lover, but it took me until my late teens to realise what actually goes on in the background, before the conveniently packaged meat arrives on your plate. I couldnt believe what I had been unconsiously supporting my whole life. I believe many of you out there are just like me, you care about your health, you love animals, and you would love to see an end to global warming.
Not only is going Vegan the best thing you can do to help end the suffering of our furry friends, it has the ability to save the world from hunger, poverty and even climate change. With the endless list of positive outcomes of going vegan to animals, our environment, world starvation, and even your own health, my biggest argument is, WHY NOT?
A recent United Nations report concluded that a global shift toward a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change. 51 percent or more of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture. Meat and dairy accounts for a major proportion of the worlds fresh water consumption, land usage and greenhouse gas emissions. A plant-based diet uses only one third of the land required to support a meat and dairy diet, and studies have proven that a meat eaters diet is responsible for more than seven times as much green house gas as a vegan's diet is. If you want to put a stop to global warming, going Vegan will have a bigger impact than switching to a hybrid car or even recycling. But, by just one person going Vegan won’t make a difference you say? Well, statistics say you are wrong! In just one year, a vegetarian can save approximately 100 animals… so if you care about animals, your own health and our environment, you know the best thing you can do to save the world, is go vegan!
Humans thrive on a plant-based diet, and live a happy and healthy life, without supporting animal cruelty. I wake up each morning, not only knowing that I am living a cruelty free life, but that I am also, the healthiest I have ever been, and that to me is happiness.
Thank you so much to my friend, Neil Dixon, for doing an incredible job with photography as usual and for being so supportive on the day. Claire & Jason, I couldn't have done it without you. Your kindness, compassion & hard work will always inspire me. Thank you for everything.
