VIVIENNE WESTWOOD, PAUL AND STELLA MCCARTNEY, MORRISSEY, JOAQUIN PHOENIX, PAMELA ANDERSON, ALAN CUMMING AND MORE STAR IN PETA US ‘VEGETARIAN ICON’ STAMPS

PETA-stamp-sheet4PETA US’ ‘Vegetarian Icon’ Stamps: Peta is launching, a limited-edition sheet of US Postal Service–approved photo stamps honouring celebrated vegetarians, including fashion icon Vivienne Westwood, Paul and Stella McCartney, Morrissey, Alan Cumming, Pamela Anderson, Casey Affleck, Joaquin Phoenix, Ricky Martin, Joan Jett and many others…PETA-stamp-sheet5PETA-stamp-sheet2 Westwood went vegetarian because the English fashion designer believes that we should “not consume but live in harmony” with the world.

And Stella McCartney – who, like Westwood, refuses to use fur in her designs – credits her father with instilling vegetarian values in her. “One of the things I was taught growing up was, ‘Do unto others as you would have done to yourself'”, she says. “It’s a way of life.”PETA-stamp-sheet1Manchester’s Morrissey, of course, famously titled The Smiths’ 1985 album Meat Is Murder, and he’s still playing the title track live on tour. And he’s not the only Brit who’s outspoken about being kind to animals. PETA-stamp-sheet6Cumming, who famously blasted fur-wearers from onstage in Cabaret, thinks “killing to make or eat things is horrific”. “Rotten carcasses don’t feel good inside … my body”, the Scottish actor says. “I’ve also seen some horrible documentaries about the hormones and things that go into meat. On a health level, meat is so scary.”

The exclusive stamp sheet is available for purchase at PETA.org
