MANILA, Philippines – Model, VJ, and Twitmusic creative director Sandra Seifert took part in People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) campaign to save the planet by going vegetarian in a daring photoshoot today at DPI XL in Makati City.
With the Earth’s oceans and continents painted on her torso and arms and holding the message, “Save the Planet: Go Vegetarian,” Sandra was shot by top photographer Ken Go. Other members of the styling team were Don Delubio (body paint), Anju Dargani (makeup), and Nina’s Touch (hairstyle).
PETA says that animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change and a major contributor to resource depletion, pollution, and world hunger. Feeding, transporting, and slaughtering farmed animals and packaging, transporting, and storing their flesh waste enormous amounts of energy.
“Meat production has a devastating impact on the environment,” says Sandra. “With so many alternatives to meat available, it’s easier than ever to enjoy great food while saving animals and the planet. Going vegetarian is the best thing we can do to save the planet this Earth Day!”
The United Nations recently stated that a global shift toward a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change. Livestock gas is the source of more than a third of all global human-attributed methane emissions—as a greenhouse gas, methane is 20 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. – Rappler.com
