OTTAWA -- Office workers out for lunch Wednesday got more than they bargained for as two near-naked female models shared a hot bubble bath at the corner of Bank St. and Albert.

Covered in little more than bubbles and goose pimples, the two bathers involved in the stunt staged by animal rights organization PETA, braved the cold and leers from passersby to mark World Water Day and spread the message that eating meat is not environmentally friendly.

"Not only is the meat industry cruel, it also wastes huge amounts of water and damages the planet," PETA campaigner Emily Lavender said. "This is a fun way to get the message across that eating a lot of meat is not good for people or the environment.

"If you want to save the planet, the best place to start for most people is to adopt a vegan diet, no meat, dairy or animal products."
