Pumpkin Spice Latte Season Is Hiding Something Rotten

It’s finally pumpkin spice latte season again. We’ve waited all year for crunchy leaves, comfy cardigans, and, of course, pumpkin spice lattes! There’s nothing quite like that iconic blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves to cover up the taste of pus that’s commonly found in cow’s milk.

Watch this cheeky new video from PETA to discover how to make the most of pumpkin spice latte season:

Pull on a pair of UGGs and stroll down your favorite forest path. Enjoy the crisp air and the crunch of leaves beneath boots made from skin ripped off a sheep. They’ll keep your toes warm in fleshy cocoons.

Oh, and don’t forget your alpaca wool scarf in case it gets chilly. You may have heard that alpacas frequently vomit in fear while being beaten and mangled for their wool. But the shearers do such a fabulous job washing away the barf that you’d never even guess anything happened. All that’s left is a pile of wool and coziness, for you anyway.

Celebrate the season responsibly.

Enough joking around: Helping animals exploited by humans is serious business. Thankfully, PETA makes it easy to find delicious vegan products packed with pumpkin spice flavor and stylish vegan clothes to help keep you warm. We also have the power to influence companies to make changes that are better for customers and for animals.

In 2021, UGG announced the launch of an entirely vegan line, which PETA and thousands of conscientious people campaigned hard for. The next year, Deckers Brands—which owns UGG—made the compassionate decision to stop using alpaca wool by fall 2023.

Urge UGG to Go All-Vegan

More people than ever before are ditching dairy and going vegan to help animals, save the environment, and improve their own health. It’s time that Starbucks stopped charging customers extra for choosing dairy-free milks.

If you want to help animals, join the more than 150,000 people who’ve taken action by urging Starbucks to drop its vegan milk upcharge:

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
