Miss Philippines Earth 2009, Sandra Seifert, says ‘Our Bodies Are Temples. Go Vegetarian’ in risque ad

Showing plenty of skin and holding a green apple, Miss Philippines Earth 2009, environmentalist and model, Sandra Seifert quotes 1 Corinthians in an attempt to convince people to “go vegetarian”, according to a PETA Asia press release Monday.



The 30-year-old mixed Filipina-German beauty appears in a brand-new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia.

Seifert says the new PETA campaign was inspired by the Bible verse “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own” [1 Corinthians 6:19].

“Killing animals for food is cruel, and it’s also killing our planet,” says Seifert, who has been vegetarian for more than half of her life. “With so many delicious meat-free foods available these days and so many compelling reasons not to eat meat—to improve your health, to help stop animal suffering, and to fight back against pollution and greenhouse-gas emissions—there’s never been a better time to go vegetarian!”

In addition to her success at beauty contests and gracing magazine covers, Seifert also produced an environmental short film with the Miss Earth Foundation entitled “Project Noel,” which received the very first Loren Legarda Environment Award for Film at the 59th FAMAS Awards in 2011. 

The stunning ad was shot by top photographer Ken Go. Seifert’s makeup was done by Magic by Anju Dargani, and her hair was styled by Nina’s Touch.
