The end of another big year for animals is here: Among our accomplishments in 2022 are the transfer of 4,000 dogs, who were imprisoned at the beagle-breeding hellhole Envigo, into safe and loving homes, and the debut of our new virtual reality experience, “Abduction,” to college campuses around the U.S. 2023 will start off on the right foot with the California fur ban, which goes into effect on January 1, and PETA will make sure the year keeps going strong.
2022 brought a lot of changes, and we’re here to mark them with our annual tradition. PETA’s list of what’s “in” and what’s “out” in 2023 will make sure you know what’s up:
|Elon Musk as Twitter’s head?||Experiments on himself instead|
|adidas shoes by Kanye West||Vegan styles to look your best|
|Monkey labor for HelloFresh||Primate sanctuaries, where monkeys rest|
|Animals on movie sets||CGI, visual effects|
|Lindsay Lohan advocating for “pilk”||Urging Starbucks to drop the charge for plant-based milk|
|Buying a brand’s “Responsible Down Standard” lie||Warm feather-free bedding for restful shut-eye|
|Sharing AI selfies with strangers online||Sharing AR leaflets, flyers, and signs|
|Bitcoin, crypto, and NFTs||Investing in nature, protecting the bees|
