Wearing a pair of angel wings made entirely of fresh summer fruit, Shades of Blue and Descendants star Sarah Jeffery appears in a new ad campaign for peta2, PETA's youth division, that proclaims, “Be an Angel for Animals — Don’t Eat Them!”
In an exclusive peta2 video interview, Jeffery calls going vegan “the best choice I could have made.” She goes on to explain, “I’ve learned so much about what you can do to help animals, the environmental issues around meat production. And it just makes me feel better. It gives me so much more energy. My skin has cleared up.”
Jeffery also reveals that the documentary Earthlings didn’t just inspire her to cut meat, eggs, and dairy “products” out of her diet.
“I’m not supporting any companies that cause harm to animals. So that includes beauty, hair, and clothes,” she says. “I only support cruelty-free brands, and I hope that more brands stop testing on animals because it’s just completely unnecessary and barbaric.”
peta2 — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” — notes that each person who goes vegan saves more than 100 animals every year from daily abuse and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries. And going vegan can give your health a boost, too: Vegans are less prone to heart disease, obesity, cancer, and strokes than meat-eaters are.
