Joan Jett's Veggie Testimonial

Posted October 27, 2008 by Rachelle Owen

Few women can say they rock as hard as Joan Jett, just ask peta2 staffer Ashleigh who may or may not be dressing as the “original riot grrrl” for Halloween this year. We’ll just have to wait and see.

But one thing’s for certain, Joan is one of the most outspoken vegans you’ll ever meet. And not in a preachy sort of way either, she’s too cool to lecture anyone. Instead she chooses to hit you with the facts about the devastating toll that the meat industry has on the environment. Check it out.


Joan gave meat the boot almost 20 years ago after finding out what happens to animals raised and killed for food. Find out what else she had to say when we picked her brain during her PSA photo shoot. Oh, and you’ll also find out why she’s one of my (and Ashleigh’s) heroes.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
