One Man and One Woman Will Win a Stay for Two at a Luxury Boutique Hotel

London – The celebrity world certainly has its fair share of sexy vegans – including Ellie Goulding, Natalie Portman, Jessica Chastain, Jared Leto, David Haye and Joaquin Phoenix – but PETA wants to recognise all the people in the UK and Ireland who’ve said farewell to unhealthy meat, eggs and dairy products. That’s why the group has just launched its 2015 Sexiest Vegan UK and Ireland contest, giving every person who has made the smart decision to go vegan a chance to shine. In addition to acquiring an envy-inducing title, the winners (one male and one female) will each receive a one-night stay for two at the luxury boutique hotel La Suite West in London, which will include a vegan breakfast as well as a dinner prepared by vegan Head Chef Nik Heartland at its animal-free restaurant, RAW.

In addition to saving animals’ lives, people go vegan for a variety of reasons, including the fact that vegans tend to be fitter and trimmer than meat-eaters, which makes them more attractive, too. Also, raising animals for food is a leading cause of water consumption and pollution, land degradation and greenhouse-gas emissions.

“Compassion for others is not only a sign of strength but also a big turn-on”, says PETA’s Yvonne Taylor. “Everyone who enters this contest is already a winner because they’re protecting animals and the planet and taking care of their own health.”

Entrants must be at least 18 years of age. Vegans can enter the contest using this online form until 5pm on 3rd July. The finalists – four men and four women – will be notified and featured on PETA’s website by noon GMT on 6th July. Voting on the finalists to help PETA determine whom it should pick as the winners will run from 6th July until 17th July. Winners will be chosen by PETA based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced on 20th July. See the full contest details here.

Last year’s winners, Jenna McGuinness from Glasgow and Gareth Lloyd from Oxford, are available for interviews.
