Back in March we reported that vegan guru Alicia Silverstone helped inspire fellow actress Tia Mowry to go vegan. Now, the former “Sister, Sister” star is breaking out the lettuce apron to ask the world to go vegan.
Mowry has teamed up with PETA for a new ad that says, “Let veganism grow on you”. Of course, she’s dressed in a sexy little veggie number. (It wouldn’t be PETA without some sex appeal.)
In the video below Mowry talks about her experience announcing to the world that she went vegan, and that not everyone supported her decision. She says, “I became a vegan and I was getting bullied a lot on twitter. And PETA reached out to me and they said ‘girl we’ve got your back’. And they sent so many cooking books and pamphlets.” As for why she wanted to take part in the ad campaign, she said, “I wanted to become a voice for my community. That’s one of the main reasons why I decided to be a part of this ad campaign because I wanted to educate my culture about the benefits of becoming vegan.”
Check out the full video to see the inside scoop on the shoot and how the actress is now converting her friends to sharing her love of vegan foods. For Mowry, the decision is about health and about animals. Two great reasons to take the pledge to go vegan today. As the star says, “Don’t knock it until you try it.”
