Be Kind to Sheep! Say, ‘Vegan Feta Cheese, Please!’

Published by .

Vegan feta tastes and looks like the real deal—salty, savory, creamy, and crumbly. But vegan cheeses are even yummier than dairy because no animal is harmed in their creation—compassion always tastes better!

Feta is traditionally made of sheep’s milk. Sheep are intelligent, social, emotional beings who feel love, joy, and pain, just as cats and dogs do. But sheep used for their milk suffer from confinement, pain, and stress. Mothers are separated from their lambs shortly after birth and are slaughtered when their milk production declines and they stop making farmers money.

Purchase vegan cheeses and other products to take a stand against cruelty to sheep. These days, no one needs to sacrifice flavor to follow their conscience—especially with all these delectable vegan options!
