Sheridyn Fisher Asks Fans to ‘Be a Bunny’s Honey’ and Go Vegetarian for Easter

For Immediate Release:
3 April 2012

Sydney – Just in time for Easter, Playboy model Sheridyn Fisher is showing her love for rabbits – and “rabbit food” – by wearing only strategically placed lettuce leaves in a new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Australia, which encourages everyone to show compassion for bunnies and other animals by embracing vegetarian meals. In the ad, which was shot by top photographer Neil Dixon, the lettuce bikini–clad Fisher gives herself lettuce leaf “bunny ears” and grins above the words, “Be a Bunny’s Honey. Go Vegetarian.”

“Easter is the perfect time to help bunnies – and pigs, chickens, cows and other animals – simply by choosing not to eat them”, says Fisher. “Vegetarian meals are healthy, humane and helpful to the environment, so they’re something everybunny can enjoy.”

Not only are vegetarians fitter and trimmer, on average, than meat-eaters are, they also have a lower risk of heart attacks, cancer, strokes and obesity. Vegetarians also save cows, pigs and other animals from immense suffering on factory farms, in abattoirs and on the decks of fishing boats. And vegetarian diets are good for the environment, too: researchers at the University of Chicago concluded that switching from a standard meat-based diet to one free of animal products is more effective in the fight against climate change than changing from an ordinary car to a hybrid.

Known for making a splash on the covers and pages of magazines such as Playboy, FHM, Cleo, Dolly, Girlfriend and Cosmopolitan, Fisher is also the owner, designer and face of her own internationally known line of swimsuits, Sheridyn Swim.

Fisher joins a long list of celebrities – including Imogen Bailey, The Veronicas, Yvonne Strahovski, Missy Higgins, Pamela Anderson and Sir Paul McCartney – who have teamed up with PETA Australia and its affiliates to help animals.
