The Story of Mike Ness’ Animal-Friendly Life

Published by PETA.

It seems like anywhere Mike Ness goes, he leaves his mark. As the frontman for Social Distortion, he’s one of the most influential men in punk rock. As a solo artist, he’s blazing a trail on the alterna-country scene. However, while Mike has made a huge impact on the music world, his impact on good ol’ Mother Earth is smaller than most people’s. That’s because Mike knows that meat’s not green and that by keeping animals off his plate he’s doing the single most effective thing anyone can do to reduce his or her carbon footprint.

Mike Ness is the most recent celebrity to sit down with PETA for a “Meat’s Not Green” photo shoot, and he even took the time to answer a few questions about why he’s doing his part to make the world a better place. Check out his video below and then head over and check out the ad.
