Ban plastic cutlery and straws in fast-food chains to protect our oceans and marine life.

Globally, we throw away 500 million straws a day and according to PlasticOceans.org, we dump 8 million tonnes of single-use plastic in our oceans yearly. Plastic cutlery and straws have an incredibly short usage time, yet take several 100 years to break down and decompose when they end up in our oceans. No marine species are safe from the toxic impact of the plastic that is heavily polluting our oceans. Straws and cutlery often end up in the digestive systems and in the noses and throats of our marine life, ultimately killing them and contributing to the depletion of already struggling species of fish and marine mammals. Multiple studies have also shown that we too are consuming the plastic fragments ingested by fish. Starbucks, McDonald's and Subway are giants in their fields. They have the power to lead the way in industry-wide change when it comes to the wasteful and toxic throwing away of hundreds of millions of pieces of single-use plastic DAILY. When they make the change, others will be encouraged to follow. If smaller, independent coffee and fast-food stores are able to use paper straws and biodegradable alternatives to plastic cutlery, huge companies like Starbucks and McDonald's most definitely can too. It is thought that if we continue on our current trajectory, by 2050 our oceans could hold more plastic than they do fish. We have to make a change NOW.

End inhumane chicken farming

Around 60 billion chickens are reared for meat each year with 40 billion of these chickens being raised in huge, crowded sheds or cramped cages. Many of the chickens actually live in a space smaller than a A4 piece of paper.A factory farmed chicken lives on an average of 42 days to 12 weeks instead of up to 10 years. This means that meat chickens are still chicks when they are slaughtered and they are bred to grow unnaturally fast. They are kept in dismal conditions and suffer painful heart, skin, lung and bone problems as well as stress.Around 2,000 meat chickens are slaughtered every second around the world. The Better Chicken Commitment is a set of criteria for improving the lives of chicken's raised for meat. These standards were agreed by a group of leading animal protection organisations such as RSPCA, Compassion in World Farming, World Animal Protection and The Humane League UK in 2018.Only five percent of chicken on supermarket shelves meets the Better Chicken Commitment. Waitrose and Marks and Spencer's are committed to meeting the Better Chicken Commitment on all of their own brand chicken by 2026. However, Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, Sainsbury, Asda and Morrisons are still yet to fully commit.It is time for our local supermarkets and fast food restaurants to back better standards for chickens and to start making a difference!Sign this petition to demand change for chickens.

Chiedi a Subway di ridurre la sofferenza di milioni di polli

Subway è la catena di fast food che possiede il maggior numero di negozi in franchising in tutto il mondo. Attraverso i propri canali, Subway, promette ai propri clienti cibo di qualità prodotto in modo sostenibile e con alti standard etici.  Tuttavia, c’è qualcosa su cui Subway non è chiara: da dove proviene la carne di pollo che utilizza nei propri panini e nelle proprie insalate?  Come noto, purtroppo, negli allevamenti intensivi di polli allevati per la loro carne, gli animali sono sottoposti a sofferenze indicibili. Essi vengono selezionati geneticamente per crescere in modo estremamente veloce così da poter soddisfare la crescente richiesta di carne bianca. Ed, infatti, i polli raggiungono il peso di macellazione a soli 42 giorni di vita.  Questa crescita rapidissima compromette seriamente la loro salute, provocando deformazioni e numerose patologie dovute al fatto che i loro organi interni non crescono allo stesso ritmo della muscolatura. La loro condizione fisica è talmente grave da essere stata definita una “gabbia fisiologica”. Il loro corpo è la loro prigione.  La brevissima vita di questi animali viene poi resa ancora più insopportabile dalle condizioni di estremo affollamento e mancanza di luce naturale a cui sono sottoposti.  Gli animali che riescono a sopravvivere alle malattie e agli stenti, affrontano una fine terribile nei macelli, dove vengono sgozzati, spesso mentre sono ancora coscienti per via della scarsissima efficacia degli attuali metodi di stordimento.  Ad Animal Equality ci battiamo ogni giorno per creare un mondo in cui gli animali non vengano allevati ed uccisi ma, nel frattempo, non possiamo voltare le spalle a questi animali e abbiamo deciso di fare il possibile per alleviare la loro sofferenza. A questo proposito, abbiamo collaborato insieme ad altre 26 organizzazioni internazionali al fine di compilare un documento che stabilisca una serie di richieste con le quali ci rivolgeremo alle maggiori aziende del settore alimentare in Europa. Questo documento si chiama  “European Chicken Commitment”. Subway possiede più di 42.000 negozi in franchising in ogni parte del mondo; in ognuno di questi negozi la carne di pollo viene servita quotidianamente ed è uno degli ingredienti principali del menù.  Grazie alla coalizione Open Wing Alliance, di cui Animal Equality fa parte, Subway ha già adottato una politica aziendale che tutela il benessere di polli negli Stati Uniti ed in Canada, e se l’azienda decidesse di sottoscrivere l’European Chicken Commitment anche  in Europa, migliorerebbe la vita di molti altri milioni di questi animali. Per favore, unisciti alla campagna internazionale per chiedere a Subway di adottare questo Commitment in modo da ridurre in modo significativo la sofferenza dei polli coinvolti nelle proprie filiere in ogni fase della loro breve vita.

Subway: Stop supporting cruelty to chickens!

For quite some time, Subway’s footlongs have been a regular lunch time go-to for myself and many others. As a busy student, it’s important for me to have access to food that works for my budget as well as my health. Until now I was under the impression that Subway was the solution. Unfortunately, I will no longer be eating at Subway. The reason I have chosen to boycott Subway is because I recently found out that the chickens in its supply chain endure horrific abuse and cruelty. Chickens raised for Subway's supply chain spend the majority of their lives crammed inside filthy, windowless sheds by the tens of thousands. They are bred to grow grotesquely large at an unnaturally fast rate and are violently shackled, electrocuted, and slit at their throats while fully conscious. These abuses are not what you’d expect from a restaurant chain that prides itself on food quality, but they’re the sad reality for chickens raised for Subway’s supply chain. Fortunately, several major restaurant chains have released comprehensive chicken welfare policies to address the myriad forms of cruelty to chickens in their supply chains. Some of these companies include Quiznos, Chipotle, Shake Shack, and Starbucks. Until Subway joins its competitors and commits to addressing the cruelty in its supply chain, I hope you will join me in boycotting Subway! It’s time for Subway to release a policy to provide birds with more space and a clean, naturally lit environment, shift away from fast-growing breeds of birds, and eliminate live-shackle slaughter methods. Please, sign my petition and let Subway know that you won’t be dining with them until they adopt a meaningful animal welfare policy that spares birds from the worst abuses they currently endure in its supply chain.

Subway: Queremos um Sanduíche Vegano!

Subway: incluam sanduíches veganos no cardápio! Meu nome é Mônica Buava, desde cedo gosto muito de frango, porco e boi, porém, vivos e livres! Aos 16 anos, descobri as crueldades da indústria da carne e me tornei vegetariana, aos 19, percebi que a situação era a mesma com a indústria de ovos e laticínios, por isso, decidi me tornar vegana! Há anos atrás, era muito difícil encontrar opções para comer, porém, a tendência ao vegetarianismo e veganismo fizeram com que os restaurantes, bares e lanchonetes passassem a oferecer opções sem carne, leite e ovos. Precisamos que a rede Subway adote essa medida e crie opções veganas! Já somos cerca de 7 milhões de veganos e queremos que uma das maiores redes de lanchonetes nos respeite e lembrem de nós. As opções são simples: ou o Subway lança as opções veganas, ou ficará atrasado e excluirá parte da população. Vale lembrar que muitos de nós são intolerantes à lactose e o sanduíche “vegetariano” leva queijo! Tudo o que estamos pedindo é que essa crescente fatia da população, da qual faço parte, tenha uma boa opção para comer quando vai a uma das centenas unidades do Subway espalhadas pelo Brasil. Assine e divulgue para mostrar que você se importa com os animais - e com o nosso direito a ter o que comer quando vamos a uma lanchonete! Esta é uma luta conjunta da Sociedade Vegetariana, Portal Vista-se e Vegetarirango. Petição vinculada: Giraffas: incluam opções veganas no cardápio!

Covid19 : Non au travail des salariés de la " Resto Rapide " ! La vie avant vos Profits

Alors que la situation sanitaire du pays est assez grave pour que le gouvernement prenne des mesures drastiques, impose la fermeture de tous les commerces qui ne seraient pas VITAUX Alors qu'il est imposé à la population de rester confiné chez soi, de limiter tout contact humain dans un espace de sécurité d’1 mètre, de limiter les déplacements à des activités INDISPENSABLES et ce bien entendu pour éviter la propagation du Covid-19. Alors que le gouvernement prévoit des cas de chômage partiel dans le but encore une fois d'éviter la propagation du virus, certaines grandes enseignes de la restauration rapide ont réussi à obetnir une incohérente dérogation pour continuer à ouvrir leurs points de vente ! Ces ouvertures sont une catastrophe sanitaire pour les employés de ces enseignes, leurs proches et tout le reste de la population. Les salariés de la Restauration Rapide travaillent en totale promiscuité (parfois de quelques centimètres) et en lien direct avec la clientèle. Entre 7 et 40 personnes produisent dans des locaux inférieurs à 50 mètres carrés et alimentent donc la diffusion de ce dangereux virus. Ces enseignes doivent prendre en compte la crainte de leurs salariés et doivent fermer immédiatement leurs portes. Nous ne pouvons continuer d’être la chaire à canon des actionnaires, qui eux sont loin de tous ces risques. Le service de la vente à emporter ainsi que la livraison à domicile de Burgers et de Sandwishs n’est pas « vital » pour les citoyens et nos restaurants n'ont donc AUCUNE légitimité à rester ouverts. En plus d’être sous payés et précaires, ces enseignes mettent en péril plus de 140 000 employés en augmentant la propagation du Covid-19 à l’ensemble de la population de notre pays, à leur proches et leurs enfants au nom du sacro-saint Profit ! Nous salariés de ces enseignes demandons la fermeture de tous les restaurants en préservation de notre santé ainsi que la fin de la livraison à domicile. Nous salariés dénonçons l’hypocrisie de ces ouvertures " drive " qui vont à l'encontre du discours de santé public actuel. Nous salariés, demandons la mise en place IMMEDIATE du chômage partiel afin de pouvoir rester à notre domicile au contact de nos enfants et de notre famille. Nous salariés, demandons la garantie du maintien de nos salaires à 100% durant la totalité de la période de chômage. La CGT et les salariés de notre branche signataires interpellons via cette pétition le ministère de la santé, le ministère du travail, le 1er Ministre ainsi que les responsables des Organisations Patronales de la Restauration Rapide sur le double discours des pouvoirs publics, ainsi que sur la responsabilité que ces derniers porteront en cas de diffusion du virus au sein de nos restaurants.
