Phoenix – As temperatures climb in one of America’s hottest cities, PETA is stepping in to help residents get even hotter (and healthier) bodies with an eye-catching summer ad campaign featuring a woman’s bottom in a bikini and the words “Dive Into a Vegan Lifestyle.” The billboards are going up this week at six locations near pools around the city.
The first billboard is located at 15759 N. 19th Ave., just south of Tierra Buena Lane near the Deer Valley Pool.
“Vegan meals save animals’ lives and can help swimmers get that sought-after bikini body,” says “Lettuce Lady” and former Sexiest Vegan of the Year winner Yerika Soho. “PETA’s cheeky ads will motivate Phoenix residents to shape up by eating grains, beans, veggies, fruits, and nuts and skipping the cholesterol and fat-laden meat and dairy foods.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that each person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries. While vegans have big hearts, studies show that they have healthier ones, too: In addition to lowering their risk of developing heart disease, vegans are less prone to suffering from cancer, diabetes, and obesity and, on average, are fitter and trimmer than meat-eaters.
