Norfolk, Va. – Who’s the sexiest (mature) vegan of them all? PETA Prime’s 2017 Sexiest Vegan Over 50 competition, which honors baby boomers living a healthy, humane, and rewarding lifestyle, is now open for submissions. The winner will receive a free Holistic Holiday at Sea luxury cruise vacation to the Bahamas and Virgin Islands.

“An active body, a healthy heart, and a clear conscience are just some of the benefits of eating delicious plant-based meals, at any age,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman says. “Everyone who enters PETA Prime’s Sexiest Vegan Over 50 contest proves that a compassionate vegan lifestyle is the key to staying sexy inside and out.”

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 meat, egg, and dairy industries. While vegans obviously have big hearts, studies show that they have healthier ones, too. In addition to having a reduced 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 are.

Entrants must be U.S. residents and at least 50 years of age. Previous finalists and winners are ineligible to enter. The entry round ends on August 29. On September 8, PETA will announce the finalists—to be determined by a PETA panel—and voting will open to the public to help determine the winners. The group will choose the winners based on several factors, including vote count, and they’ll be announced on September 25. The full contest details and application are available here.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
