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.
PETA and meat-eating do not usually go together. Yet this week, we’re celebrating an event that centres around tasting a real beef hamburger. This isn’t an unexpected U-turn for our organisation – because the meat being sampled today was grown in a laboratory! Dr Mark Post, a bio-scientist from the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands is hosting a ceremony in London which offers the first-ever opportunity to sample a burger made from real bovine tissue produced in vitro.
PETA founder Ingrid E Newkirk explains why we’re right behind this exciting … Read more.

These fresh-tasting recipes are the perfect way to wow your friends and enjoy the warm weather while sticking to your cruelty-free principles:

Cruel and unusual punishments aren’t things which prisoners in this country have to endure. So we’re glad that compassionate meal options are being offered to prisoners so that animals aren’t necessarily being subjected to such punishments, either.
Like us, animals are made of flesh, blood and bone. They have the same five senses that we do, and they have the same capacity to experience suffering and fear. All animals share the desire to live their lives free of pain and to avoid a violent death. Feeding prisoners pasta instead of pork chops … Read more.
Father’s Day is just around the corner, so we thought we’d pass along some tasty recipes so you can treat your old man by making him a scrumptious vegan breakfast!
Animal dads on factory farms are denied all the joys of fatherhood and are never allowed to even set eyes on their children. So if you love spending time with your papa, it makes sense to let him know it by preparing food that no other fathers had to suffer for. And whether he is already a dedicated follower of a cruelty-free … Read more.

Word is that Johnny Depp, one of the world’s favourite actors, has just turned over a new leaf – by going vegan!
Under the compassionate influence of his new lady, Amber Heard, the star of movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean has reportedly given up meat and dairy products and is now a full convert to animal-free eating. And he’s been noticing results already, as it’s apparently helped him lose his “paunch” (not that we’d ever noticed Johnny looking less than gorgeous …).
The swashbuckling star famously values his privacy, so … Read more.
Recently, we’ve seen a series of studies about the importance of food substances such as omega-3 fatty acids and iodine for our health. From curing depression to boosting your memory, it seems that getting your nutrient balance right can improve your life in every way.
Forget dairy and fish – you can easily get all the “wonder” ingredients that your body needs from a healthy plant-based diet and without any of the potentially harmful side effects that result from eating animal products. If you have a varied and balanced diet with plenty … Read more.
We’ve all heard it – “I’d love to go vegan, but I just couldn’t give up cheese”. Well, thanks to all the fab vegan cheese products around today, you don’t have to!
The world of dairy-free cheese is rapidly expanding, and the even better news is that vegan cheese products contain only a fraction of the fat found in animal-derived cheese but can be equally delicious. Added satisfaction comes from the fact that no animals were harmed in its making – no baby calves were ripped away from their mothers, and no … Read more.
Every way you look at it, going vegan makes sense. For animals, for your health, for the environment, for your conscience and even for your wallet!
Our 30-day pledge is the ideal way to try going vegan for yourself. Pledgers receive regular advice and support to help with the transition to a plant-based diet, including a free vegan starter kit. After a month, most people feel great and never want to go back to consuming animal products!
Here at PETA, we’ve all been through the same journey and … Read more.
