Wallis Day Urges a Brighter, Vegan Future in New PETA Campaign

Actor Says Plant-Based Meals Are Better for Animals, Human Health, and the Planet

London – With her skin glowing from plant-powered goodness, actor Wallis Day – whose new film, Infinite, is set for release this year – stars in a new PETA campaign urging people to go vegan and bring about a brighter, better world in which sensitive living beings aren’t slaughtered by the billions for food.

“When I learned about the horrifying treatment of animals raised and killed for food, I didn’t want to be part of that,” says Day. “Now, I’m proud to be a part of the vegan revolution that’s taking place around the world. I’ve teamed up with PETA on this campaign because I want more people to try plant-based eating and experience the benefits that come with it for themselves.”

PETA stresses that the reasons to go vegan have never been clearer or more pressing. COVID-19 is believed to have originated in a “wet market” where live and dead animals were sold for human consumption. Filthy meat markets, factory farms, and slaughterhouses crammed full of sick, stressed animals are breeding grounds for zoonotic diseases. Previous influenza viruses originated in chickens and pigs.

In addition, every person who goes vegan reduces their carbon footprint, as the meat industry is a leading producer of the greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change; saves the lives of nearly 200 animals a year; and reduces their own risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. “I feel good knowing that I’m doing my part to help combat climate change and spare animals the horrors of the slaughterhouse,” says Day.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. High-resolution images are available here. For more information, please visit PETA.org.uk or follow the group on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.
