Norfolk, Va. – Are you ready for “ThanksVegan”? Interest in going vegan is at an all-time high—and as the world is battling both a deadly virus that originated in a meat market and deadly wildfires caused by animal agriculture–fueled climate change, more people than ever will likely be giving turkeys a break this holiday. So PETA has launched a ThanksVegan campaign, offering tips for a happy, vegan-friendly celebration in the lead-up to the holiday, to help them do it!
Making vegan Thanksgiving dishes can be as easy as using margarine in mashed potatoes, almond milk in apple dumplings, and veggie broth in stuffing. Shoppers can find all these ingredients and more at Sobeys, Safeway, Save-On-Foods, and Urban Fare, which are teaming up with PETA to promote delicious vegan roasts both in-store and online for ThanksVegan.
And Thanksgiving is anything but happy for the gentle birds whose bodies are carved up and served for dinner, so we suggest a cheerful “Happy ThanksVegan!” instead.
