Maggie Q of The CW's Nikita is turning up the heat on the fight against climate change. You may have seen
her signature fighting moves on Nikita,
but her greatest attack against one of the largest causes of environmental
destruction—the meat industry—is her plant-based diet. There are many proposed
solutions to fighting climate change, but the most efficient option is to go veg.
her ad for PETA, shot by iconic photographer Frank Ockenfels 3, Maggie asks people to
take responsibility and think about how our food choices impact the Earth,
animals, and our health.
Raising animals for food damages the environment. Whether it's the overuse of resources, fossil-fuel emissions, massive water and
air pollution, or soil erosion, the meat and dairy industry is wreaking havoc
on the Earth. In addition, the billions of animals raised on factory farms are forced to endure extremely stressful conditions, often crammed
into spaces barely bigger than their bodies. They are fed drugs to make them
grow at an unnatural rate before they are transported in all weather extremes
to slaughterhouses, where they will die slowly and painfully.
her exclusive interview, Maggie shares why she chose to go naked for this
message and why eating plant-based meals is the best way to combat
environmental devastation, protest cruelty to animals, preserve our health, and
take part in the fight against climate change, sign this pledge to go vegan and share this ad on Twitter!
