Tia Mowry-Hardict Poses For PETA

Tia Mowry is the latest celebrity to partner with PETA for a new campaign. While others go nude for PETA, she kept her clothes on by being covered in lettuce to prove she is all about a vegan lifestyle.

The actress felt obligate to become part of the campaign title ‘Let Veganism Grow On You’. Ever since she gave birth to her baby boy Cree, she’s been about clean and healthy living for herself and family.  Tia also revealed that she hopes to educate others on the ‘benefits of becoming a vegan’ while also helping animals.

I became a vegan and I was getting bullied a lot on Twitter and PETA reached out to me and they said ‘girl we’ve got your back’. And they sent so many cooking books and pamphlets and I was like ‘Wow, this is really cool.”

I wanted to become a voice for my community. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to be apart of this PETA ad campaign. I wanted to educate my culture about the benefits of becoming vegan. There’s a stigma about becoming a vegan, some people say ‘it doesn’t taste great’ [or] ‘it doesn’t taste good.’ Don’t knock it until you try it. The taste is very vibrant. Its very satisfying. [….] There’s so many great things about being a vegan. I think number one, I’m becoming more conscious about what I’m putting into my body. And I feel great because I’m making healthy and better choices. I feel so amazing after I eat vegetables or greens. I don’t feel sluggish. […] What happens to these beautiful animals is just mind blowing.

I think some people are afraid to [find out what really goes on with these animals] so they think ignorance is bliss but unfortunately not in this case. The more you learn about the benefits of being vegan, the more you become alive and the more you become aware of why it’s a really great decision. Not only am I helping myself, I’m helping the animals out there, I’m helping the environment—going vegan, I feel great.

To kick off this awesome campaign, Tia and her family hit PETA’s Bob Barker building for the unveiling of her new ad!
