Who says animal rights is just for young people? With stars like Natalie Portman, Tobey Maguire and Miley Cyrus all rocking the veggie lifestyle, it’s easy to think that the meat-free world is a young man’s game. But there’s a whole culture of AARP reading, wrinkle cream purchasing vegetarians who still remember what it was like when soy milk came in powder form.
To help give those meat-free pioneers more of a voice, PETA has created PETA Prime – a website dedicated to the more mature members of the vegetarian movement. It’s common knowledge that vegetarians live longer than a person on the Standard American Diet and so it’s even more important that us veggies have a place to call home even after we retire. (Let’s not forget that Donald Watson – the father of veganism – lived to the ripe old age of 95.)
The only question remaining is which 55+ vegetarian celebrity should be the spokesperson for PETA Prime? Should it be Steve Martin, Dustin Hoffman, Bob Barker, Ed Begley Jr. or Joanna Lumley? What about Ted Danson, Mary Tyler Moore, Paul McCartney or Phylicia Rashad. Of course there’s always Cicely Tyson, Loretta Swit and Danny Devito to consider.
