PETA is encouraging residents of the most ‘vegan unfriendly’ city in the UK to go plant-based

Animal rights charity PETA has put up a billboard in Bradford, UK which shows an image of a pig with the written message: “I want you to change – Go vegan”.

This comes after a recent survey found that the West Yorkshire city ranked as the worst place in the UK to be vegan, due to limited plant-based options in local shops and takeaway food outlets.

The survey conducted by Save On Energy revealed that the city has only 19 restaurants, cafes and takeaways which offer vegan-friendly options, despite the increasing number of Brits choosing to order plant-based.

Senior Campaigns Manager at PETA, Kate Werner stated: “We want the UK’s vegan-unfriendliest city to turn over a new leaf in 2021 and start opting for delicious vegan meals that no animal had to suffer and die for,”

When it comes to feeling pain, loving their families, and valuing their own lives, a pig is no different from a human being.”

The charity claims that going vegan can save 200 animals per year and contributes to being healthier and happier, as well as protecting the planet and the people in it.
