Los Angeles – Dressed in an all-vegetable version of her trademark vintage style, Gaby Moreno appears in a brand-new PETA Latino campaign that proclaims, “Vegan—Let It Grow on You.” The Ilusión singer-songwriter will unveil the ad today at iconic Los Angeles restaurant Mama’s International Tamales.
In a video interview with PETA Latino, Moreno shares some of the many reasons why she decided to go vegan—from the devastating impact that the meat industry has on the environment to the employees who work long hours for little pay in what she calls “deplorable” conditions. “I realized that there were so many delicious vegan food options that it was very easy for me to make that change,” she says. “I challenge you to try it for two weeks and then notice the change that you are going to experience, especially health-wise. You are going to feel great, and the truth is that the food is delicious.”
PETA Latino notes that, in addition to sparing more than 100 animals a year daily abuse and a terrifying death, vegans are less prone to suffering from heart disease, cancer, obesity, and diabetes than meat-eaters are.
Moreno is part of a growing list of celebrities—including Bomba Estereo, Carla Morrison, and Rubén Albarrán—who have teamed up with PETA Latino to promote its motto, which reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”.
