Los Angeles – Wearing an edible dress made entirely of cabbage and kale, Skylar Stecker stars in a brand-new ad for peta2, PETA’s youth division, that proclaims, “Try Vegan—It’ll Grow On You.” The ad, available here, will launch on Stecker’s 16th birthday—just weeks after her latest single, “Blame,” debuted at number one on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart.

In an exclusive video interview with peta2, Stecker—who went vegan more than three years ago and stopped eating meat five years before that—shares how easy it is to commit to vegan eating. “Everyone that I’ve ever talked [to] about trying it and they did it, they loved it,” she says. “You can have nachos that are vegan, doughnuts that are vegan, ice cream that’s vegan. You know, you can do anything vegan.”

Every person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries—and drastically reduces his or her carbon footprint. peta2 offers a free “Guide to Going Vegan” on its website.

Stecker joins a growing list of celebrities—including Noah Cyrus, Corey Fogelmanis, Hayes Grier, Daniella Monet, Madelaine Petsch, Krysten Ritter, and many others—who’ve teamed up with peta2 (whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”) to promote kindness to animals.

“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
