Extreme athlete Steph Davis is used to living life on the edge, but not when it comes to her health: She relies on her vegan diet to keep her fit and ready to climb the next mountain—literally. If a vegan diet can give an extreme athlete the energy she needs, think what it could do for you! Animal products have been linked to our nation's biggest killers, including heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. Steph teamed up with PETA for this ad celebrating how veganism helps our health, the planet, and animals.
Steph has also collaborated
with prAna—an apparel company based in California that makes clothing
with design, function, and sustainability in mind—to create a limited-edition
chalk bag whose sales will benefit PETA. prAna was inspired by
climbers and yogis, so its style remains true to the desires of extreme
athletes and yoga lovers everywhere. Ten percent of sales of the
limited-edition chalk bag will be donated to PETA, so buy one for you or a friend today! Now you can rock climb or BASE jump
in style for animals and the planet.
