The bold, courageous, and epitome of feminine prowess, Nairobi, starred by Alba Flores in the uber-popular Spanish drama ‘Money Heist,’ encourages everyone to adopt a plant-based diet.
In her debut PETA campaign, the ‘Money Heist’ star – who’s an anti-hero in the Spanish drama- shares her vegetarian journey as she urges the world to ditch animals off the plate and adopt a more life-friendly diet and lifestyle.
Wearing a striking headdress made of beautiful vegetables, fruits, and flowers, the Spanish beauty stuns in the gorgeous PETA advertisement. She is a vegetarian, for the planet and for the animals. The image which can be confused as a magazine cover is a call to go veg, if not vegan. Image shot by celebrity photographer Nico Bustos.
For the animals. For the Planet
Billions of defenseless animals lose their lives at the cusp of our taste. Taste that just lasts a few inches on our tongue. But the pain the animal suffers, incomprehensible!
Cows are routinely raped, calves separated from mothers within a few days of birth, billions of pigs kept in cringe-worthy cages – there itself taking birth, some dying – chickens and other birds captured in mammoth egg-laying facilities with barely a few inches to move. The scenes of the meat and dairy industry could jolly-well become a scrip of a Hollywood horror movie.
By adopting a vegan lifestyle today, one can contribute to the cause for sparing some of them from the bane of blades slicing through their blood-and-bone bodies.
