In honor of World Water Day (happening on March 22nd this year), Dame Vivienne Westwood stars from the shower in a new PETA ad promoting vegetarianism as a way to reduce water waste.

“I am an eco-warrior, but I take long showers with a clean conscience because I’m vegetarian,” says Westwood as she rinses off in the shower. Westwood then shares some alarming stats about water depletion caused by animal agriculture, such as the jaw-dropping fact that it takes 16 pounds of grain to produce one pound of beef. Cutting back on meat means more food and water for the world’s growing population. Additionally, a recent article from “The New York Times,” titled, “Meat Makes the Planet Thirsty,” reported that it takes 4.5 pounds of grain to make 1 pound of chicken meat and 7.3 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of pork. The United Nations, the founders World Water Day, also recognizes that the meat industry is one of the leading causes of climate change.

“By avoiding meat, you do more for the environment than recycling or driving a hybrid car combined,” says Westwood in the new ad.

Take Westwood’s suggestion of “getting your feet wet” with a vegetarian diet today! The benefits of a plant-based diet are countless, and among them are benefits to your health, for animals, and our environment. For more information on vegetarian meals, check out TryVeg.com.
