Los Angeles, March 20: Designer Vivienne Westwood says she rarely takes a shower, and she does so to save the environment!
The 72-year-old says she doesn’t wash every day and prefers to share dirty bath water with her husband because she’s so dedicated to making the environment a greener place, reports contactmusic.com.
In support of a new campaign video for animal rights group PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals), she said: “Normally at home I’m not used to the habit of a shower. I just wash my bits and rush out in the morning and more often than not get in the bath after Andreas. I’m sorry but whatever you do is helpful. We have to start somewhere.”
Westwood, who is also a dedicated vegetarian, has teamed up with PETA, which promotes ethical treatment of animals, to raise awareness of how the world’s water supplies are depleted by the meat trade.
“This is about how precious water is, it’s more important than the gas that the people want to dig up and we’re prepared to poison our water for that for example. Eating meat is one of the most environmentally damaging things it’s possible to do,” she said.
