In her brand-new veggie testimonial, stunning actor, environmentalist, and vegetarian Pippa Black opens the door to the sickening world of factory farming and explains why meat will never end up on her dinner plate. Makeup for the ad was done by Nerida Beardsell.
As Pippa shows, factory-farmed animals are confined to dark, filthy warehouses and are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them. At slaughterhouses, many animals are scalded or dismembered while they are still alive.
Meat production causes hideous suffering for animals, and eating meat is horrible for your health. Meat production contributes to the spread of animal-borne diseases, and consuming meat, eggs, and dairy products has been linked to a host of chronic and deadly diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
And if the cruelty and health risks don’t convince you to give up animal-derived products, maybe the havoc that the meat industry wreaks on the environment will. Climate change. The overexploitation of natural resources. Deforestation. Wasted land. Water and air pollution. You name it, the most serious environmental problems of our time are all directly linked to eating meat.
What You Can Do: Pledge to Be Veg
Pippa’s done it—now you can go vegetarian too. Pledge to be veg for 30 days. You’ll look better and feel a whole lot better knowing that you’re not contributing to cruelty to animals.
