The real price of Christmas

Christmas is a time for people to celebrate with friends and family, share gifts and enjoy great food and drink. It should also a time of compassion and kindness yet countless animals are slaughtered in the name of tradition.  

Millions of turkeys are eaten at Christmas dinner tables up and down the country in addition to huge numbers of pigs and salmon – also classed as firm favourites – being consumed. This adds up to a litany of misery with many more young animals’ lives being taken at a fraction of their natural lifespan. 

With the huge rise in vegan products on our supermarket shelves, there has never been an easier time to plan for a cruelty-free Christmas. Our campaign will take the appalling realities of factory farming onto the high street and show how easy it is to prepare mouth-watering meals avoiding the suffering that is such a huge part of the meat, dairy, fish and egg industries.
