The model told how her diet ‘is a main thing’ when it comes to leading a more environmentally friendly life and said she wants to help move society out of a ‘mindset of waste’.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today, she said: ‘In terms of actions, diet is a main thing for me, it’s something I can control. 

‘I eat mostly vegan, probably like 95 per cent plus. I’ve tried to consume less and support more sustainable businesses.

‘The biggest thing is probably a mindset shift, pushing against the narrative that we need to buy more, do more, and moving out of a mindset of waste.’
