Actor and honorary director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Pamela Anderson was so concerned by the deteriorating air quality index of Delhi that she wrote an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to take necessary measures to improve the current situation.
The ‘Baywatch’ star has always been vocal about the animal rights and shared an open letter on her foundation website. The actor explained that raising animals for meat, eggs, and dairy causes nearly one-fifth of all human-induced greenhouse-gas emissions.
“I know you share my concern for the future, so please lead India’s fight against climate change by taking a simple but forceful, progressive step: Ban animal-derived foods from all government meetings and functions,”
“With your country’s innovation and agricultural history, I’m sure that India-produced soy and other versatile foods can easily replace these damaging foods” she wrote.
She also shared that her pet dog named ‘Pyari’ was adopted from the streets of India.
Last month, the actor had written to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to serve nutritious vegan meals in correctional facilities.
For the ones who are not so exposed to the idea of veganism, well Vegans avoid food that comes from animals, including meat, eggs and dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt. Though these things are substituted from the things driven by plants and nature like almond and soy milk are a good substitute to dairy milk. Likewise, non dairy cheese are also available.
