TV personality and model Alicia Mayer is the latest celebrity to slip into a lettuce bikini for PETA. Others have already donned lettuce bikinis in the past, including PETA activist Jodi Ruckley, actress Traci Bingham, and of course, Pamela Anderson. Alicia just recently became a vegetarian and wanted to help spread the word about its benefits and how it could help save animals.
“I’m asking people to turn over a new leaf and go vegetarian,” she says in a statement. “With so many delicious alternatives now available, it’s easier than ever to enjoy great food without causing animal suffering.”
Other celebrity PETA supporters in the Philippines include model Isabel Roces, who posed in a cabbage-leaf gown a few years ago, actress Chin-Chin Gutierrez, and musician Kitchie Nadal.
I must say it’s a pleasant surprise seeing a local bombshell get involved in such projects. I’m personally not a fan of Alicia’s work on TV over here, but for this campaign, I’m giving her a thumbs up.
