Vivienne Westwood Suggests Vegetarian Diet to Save the Earth

Vivienne Westwood believes that humans are an endangered species. We know it might be hard to see that from our 7 billion strong population, but with the threats of climate change, water scarcity and other frightening issues, it’s hard to argue with the fashion designer.

Westwood shared on her blog the English version of an interview she did for L’Officiel magazine in which she describes the things we need to do if we’re going to make it as a species. One of our favorites? Eat fruits and veggies. Ditch the meat.

She wrote, “We are an endangered species. Our survival depends on becoming more human; for that we each need to engage with the world – not consume but live in harmony. I suggest: 1) when possible prepare your own food (‘Do it Yourself’). My own diet is without meat or grains. I am one of the world’s privileged people and can choose what I eat. Fruit and vegetables is my preferred food, delicious and aspirational. It is convenient to prepare and the most efficient for your body to use, supplying all the goodness and energy you need.”

To ensure we all live a good long time, the designer also says, “inform yourself about Climate Change, listen to the scientists; your outlook and behaviour will change.”

Great advice if you ask us. Any person familiar with climate change knows that a meat-free diet is a great way to combat global warming. Between her vegetarian diet and her involvement with Cool Earth, we can wholeheartedly say that Ms. Westwood is doing her part as a global citizen.

    Here here Vivienne! Our demise may be sooner than later. If the massive amounts of methane found below the retreating arctic ice and the thinning permafrost are released quickly, we will have runaway global warming. Worst case scenarios are coming true sooner than scientists had predicted! Switching to a plant-based diet is the first thing to do for us to have any hope!
