Making the perfect sandwich is an art form. The concept may be simple – take two slices of bread and insert your (animal-free) filling of choice – but the creative possibilities are endless!
Sampling some of the brand-new range of Violife vegan cheese from Veganic got the PETA office thinking about our favourite cruelty-free sandwiches. Here are some of our top picks:
- Kirsty’s Classic “Cheese” Sandwich: There’s nothing fancy about this sandwich, but oh my, it is tasty. Recreate it yourself with thick-cut seeded bread, smothered with basil and cashew pesto, then

On 2 October, we celebrate the birth of one of the greatest practitioners of nonviolence in all of history, Mahatma Gandhi. To mark it, the UN has declared 2 October as the International Day of Non-Violence, a day dedicated to “disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness”.
On top of that, it is World Farm Animals Day, an occasion to recognise the suffering of billions of terrified animals who are beaten, crippled and killed on factory farms and in slaughterhouses around the globe – all for nothing more … Read more.

peta2 will be celebrating the first official “Hug a Vegan” Day ever on Friday, 27 September! Are you in?
Vegans are doing the planet, animals and themselves a huge favour by ditching animal products and leading cruelty-free lives instead. peta2 wants to share the love through hugs, and we’ll be showing our support from this side of the Atlantic.

“Free-range”. “Grass-fed”. “Humane-certified”. “High-welfare”. “Organic”. We’ve all seen these misleading markers slapped onto the carcasses of dead animals and may even have wanted to believe them – but they all conceal the same exploitation and bloodshed.
These labels appeal to people with uneasy consciences who are looking for excuses not to change their habits. But put simply, treating animals ethically means not ending their lives just to satisfy your preference for a certain flavour of protein. Virtually every animal raised for meat ends his or her life in a terrifying abattoir filled … Read more.
Finding yourself sitting in the bath, almost naked, right in the middle of Cardiff’s busiest shopping street might seem like a surreal nightmare – but for two committed PETA supporters, it was simply another way to help animals!
This morning, bubbly vegan activists Chloe-Jasmine and Ken helped us to mark World Water Week in traditional PETA style, with a playful public protest to challenge passersby to think about the impact of their lifestyle. It takes the equivalent of 50 bathtubs of water to produce just one steak, making it clear that eating … Read more.
Weymouth’s Sea Life aquarium recently launched an appeal to its visitors asking them not to eat octopuses because of the fact that they are “as intelligent as the average pet dog”.
Studies have shown that octopuses are among the cleverest animals in the sea, capable of complex thought processes. They also have short- and long-term memories as well as distinct personalities and can use tools. They’ve been known to cause havoc in aquariums by escaping from their tanks, short-circuiting the lights, unscrewing water pipes and even pilfering fish from adjacent tanks on … Read more.
Many compassionate people refuse to eat meat because they know that killing an animal for his or her flesh is wrong. They might not realise, however, that eggs, although unfertilised, still come at a terrible price.
The UK has a laying flock of 34.8 million chickens, each one of whom lays roughly 314 eggs per year. This flock includes both “barn” and “free-range” birds. Don’t be fooled by the labels, though, as these animals are still typically kept in squalid, crowded conditions; are often debeaked, a painful mutilation in which the … Read more.
Who says that haggis has to start with, of all things, a sheep’s stomach? Certainly not The 78, The 13th Note or The Bungo Bar & Kitchen – all of which offer meat-free versions of Scotland’s national dish that must be tasted to be believed. They, along with nearly 20 other vegan, vegetarian and vegetarian-friendly restaurants, have made Glasgow PETA’s pick as the Most Vegan-Friendly City in the UK.
Glaswegians should be proud that their hometown is on the cutting edge of healthy cuisine that is Earth- and animal-friendly. Other … Read more.
