‘Mother Earth’ Says, ‘Save the Environment: Go Vegan’
With the Earth’s oceans and continents painted on her nearly naked body by makeup artist Tracy Kane and holding a sign that reads, “Save the Planet: Go Vegan”, model Celt from Superior Model Management appeared as “Mother Earth” in central Edinburgh today, just in time for World Environment Day. Accompanied by PETA supporters handing out leaflets explaining why meat is bad for the planet, the vegan “Mother Earth” wanted to let people know that the best way to “go green” is to ditch animal products.
In addition to causing the suffering of billions of animals raised and killed for food, the meat and dairy industries ravage the Earth. They pollute, contribute to the build-up of greenhouse gases and place a serious strain on our land and water supplies. A recent United Nations report concluded that a global shift towards a vegan diet is necessary to combat against the worst effects of climate change.
With more and more evidence highlighting the damage that meat and dairy production does to our water supply, forests and global climate, World Environment Day is the perfect day to join Celt and other compassionate people worldwide and deciding to go vegan!
