Sarah-Jane Honeywell Promotes Vegan Living in Bodypaint

Posted by 1 year ago | Permalink | Comments (13)

In little more than a thin layer of bodypaint, Sarah-Jane Honeywell – eight months pregnant, no less – has fearlessly taken to the centre of London with an important proclamation: “Vegan – for Animals, My Health, the Planet and Future Generations”.

vegan living“I’m vegan because I want to tread lightly on this Earth so that others – hopefully my son’s own son or daughter – will be able to enjoy it, too”, says the mother-to-be. “I also want to be healthy, strong and energetic for my son and I can do that simply by choosing plant-based meals.”

According to the United Nations, raising animals for food is “a top contributor to the most serious environmental problems” – including climate change – “at every scale from local to global”. Going vegan is the single most important thing that we can do to protect the planet. It’s also a great way to reduce the risk of developing heart disease, cancer, strokes, diabetes and obesity. Oh, and on top of those benefits, you’ll also help save hundreds of animals from a life of terror.

DSC_0328A compassionate plant-based diet is the obvious choice for people who are worried about cruelty to animals, climate change or their health. It’s becoming more and more popular every day, and as a result, vegan options abound in restaurants, in supermarkets and on the high street. So, what are you waiting for?

    Vegan diets aren’t for everyone. For some people (like me), tofu and veggies and rice just aren’t filling enough. I would avoid vegan meat because it’s so highly processed. I need something with a bit more bite, if you know what I mean. I’m not trying to turn anyone away from veganism. It’s your choice whether you want to do it or not. If you like, just try it for a month or so and see how you feel. The important thing is to listen to your body.

      With a bit of planning, vegan food can be just as hearty and filling as meals made using animal products! Check out this list of plant-based meals that are full of protein for some inspiration 🙂

      Oh no, you have to carry on paying for animals to be tortured and murdered because you can’t find something filling to eat… I’m sure the victims of your choices will understand.

      Noooo….the important thing is to stop killing other living things an such a vast and vicious scale when alternatives exists.

      Humans. Always fighting among ourselves for what we think is right. Except this time, we ARE right.

      The hard truths take the longest to change. But please, we are running out of time so we really sorta kinda haveta needya to make up your mind: do you want a world of balance, soul, love, respect and unity for ALL living things…OR…Quarter Pounders with Cheese for everyone just because ya can?

    EW!!!! I’m a vegan & I find this to be ridiculous! Statements in the name of veganism can be done without someone being nearly naked with their boobs hanging out. Have some self respect! Gross.

    Yeah, let’s give more people MORE reasons to dislike vegans! Way to go!

      PETA believes that women—and men—should be able to use their own bodies as political statements. Like Lady Godiva, who rode naked on a horse to protest taxes on the poor in the 11th century, PETA knows that provocative, attention-grabbing actions are sometimes necessary to get people talking about issues that they would otherwise prefer not to think about.

      The smart, compassionate men and women who pose “naked” for PETA choose to do so because they support the cause and want to take action to help animals. For example, model Rosanna Davison, who has a degree in biomedicine and naturopathic nutrition, chose to pose naked for PETA’s “Vegans Are Red Hot” advertisement because her body has benefited from wholesome plant-based foods and she wanted to promote healthy vegan living. If you take a moment to read her commentary “Why I posed naked for a cause I believe in,” you may better understand why she was so eager to call attention to the issue.

      Many famous men, including football player Bret Lockett, actor Steve-O, rapper Waka Flocka Flame, and goalkeeper Tim Howard, have stripped down to make a difference for animals as well. Thanks to them, countless people visited our website to learn more about the issues and find out what they can do to help animals.

      All of PETA’s “naked” advertisements are intended to underscore an important message, whether it’s to reveal the cruelty of fur production, to emphasize the health benefits of vegan foods, or to show the vulnerability of animals in laboratories or circuses. If you want to learn more about these issues, please visit the Issues page on PETA’s website.

        Posing naked does nothing for your cause, which is a great cause, Animals should be treated good. However posing naked is to much and to me makes your organization very un family friendly. I also have no desire to look at naked cattle farmer or dairy framers, or see people who have nice bodies telling me how great it is to drink milk.

        Dear PeTA. Do what you must – shock if you must – to wake people up.

        Animals have feelings; they experience terror and fear and depression just like humans do. And why is that? Because despite how we have elevated ourselves above all else on this planet (boy, do we ever believe our own press clippings don’t we?), we are also animals, though our actions seem to constantly deny it.

        Step up. Make a substantial change in your life that respects our fellow animals and the finite resources of the Earth. And respects yourself.

        If we don’t, Nature will. Nature will correct this. Will correct US. Nature always wins, even if it seems like it’s on the ropes.

        The root of the word humanity is human. When will we start acting with consistent humanity toward our fellow animals?

      That’s her body and she’s the only one to decide what to do with it. I find ridiculous any makeup, a painted ape seems funny to me, so what? should I demand PETA members not to use any makeup because it doesn’t fit MY views?)

    • Phil Read commented on August 2, 2015 at 3:40 pm

      A fragment of your comment really caught my eye: “…being nearly naked with their boobs hanging out. Have some self respect! Gross.”

      So, are you saying women’s bodies are gross? Is a boob (breast) offensive to you? What happens to us as we grow from babies who need the nutrition from the breast to adults who find a “boob hanging out” so gross and offensive. Really, what is your point?

      Can’t tell if you are a man or woman since you only go by a single initial. Stand by what you say and use a real name.

    Veganism can be promoted without running naked on streets. Please think and come up with better methods of grabbing the world’s attention….more and more people understand the implications of better health and better environment and will support PETA and it’s action. Many people get turned off by these nude photos…..

  • Karl commented on August 1, 2015 at 3:35 pm

    The statement is very much like vegan food ..

    almost naked , almost showing boobs .. and almost food .

    Kinda fitting really

    Thank you so much for drawing attention to the vegan lifestyle. As a long-time vegetarian (I eat rennet-free cheeses) I eat my meals knowing no one had to be sacrificed on my behalf. You are beautiful in appearance and deed. Cheers.
