TACO BELL: Don’t let animals suffer. Go cage-free!

Taco Bell is one of the top restaurant chains in the US, expanding into the breakfast business early last year. With new menu items like the Waffle and Biscuit Tacos, Taco Bell is staying competitive with the nation’s breakfast retail leader, McDonald’s. But there’s one area the Taco Bell breakfast menu falls short of the competition: cage-free eggs. On factory farms, egg laying hens are kept in tiny, barren battery cages, unable to express natural behaviors like nesting, dust-bathing, and foraging. Each hen has less space than a standard sized sheet of paper. They may never experience natural light or fresh air, and will never leave their cages until they are gathered for slaughter. Just a few weeks ago, Taco Bell’s main competitor, McDonald’s, announced it was going 100% cage-free, and set a timeline to phase out cruel battery cages from its egg supply chain. Burger King and Starbucks have set deadlines for their cage-free pledges, as well as the food service giants Compass Group, Aramark, and Sodexo. Several states have already banned battery cages. Compassion in World Farming has worked with some of the world’s largest food businesses such as McDonald’s, Walmart, and Unilever to create and improve policies for higher animal welfare. Consumer demand for better treatment of farm animals is here, and many companies have already stepped up to the plate. Taco Bell has already acknowledged its customers care about animals, by introducing a new certified vegetarian menu. The time is now to switch to cage-free eggs! Please sign the petition to ask Taco Bell to purchase only cage-free eggs for its restaurants, and set a deadline for the transition. You are a voice for animals!

Why is Taco Bell supporting SeaWorld animal abuse?

As a Penn State student, Taco Bell is located in the heart of our college town.  It’s always my latenight recommendation when looking for a yummy quick option, since it’s open till 3am.  After learning of Taco Bell’s promotion of discounted tickets to SeaWorld, I decided it no longer will be my night time restaurant recommendation. And I’m going to spread the word to as many friends as I can to tell them to reconsider going to Taco Bell, until they stop promoting SeaWorld. What’s wrong with SeaWorld? SeaWorld keeps dolphins and orcas captive in an environment resembling nothing near their natural environment. While in captivity, the lifespan of these intelligent creatures is shortened, and they live in stress to perform tricks that are unnatural to them. The conditions are so dangerous to people that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration says SeaWorld cannot have trainers in the water with orcas anymore. The documentary Blackfish exposed me to SeaWorld’s horrifying practices towards animals. When I learned of the mistreatment of orcas by SeaWorld, I showed the film to friends on campus and wrote letters to SeaWorld board members requesting that they end their cruel practices.  I was saddened of their terrible treatment of animals, and wanted to do everything I could to stop their practices. But I was even more appalled to learn that Taco Bell is promoting SeaWorld. ‘Yo Quiero’ Taco Bell to stop promoting SeaWorld.  I’m changing my late night restaurant recommendation to avoid Taco Bell until they end their ties with SeaWorld.  And I’m going to tell as many Taco Bell customers to spread the word to avoid going there as well. You can help end the captivity of animals at SeaWorld by sharing this with your friends.

Taco Bell, please introduce vegan meats into menu items!!!

Veganism and plant based diets have become exponentially more popular in the past few years due to health benefits, environmental benefits, and the animal cruelty of factory farming.  As a result most vegans live mostly on home cooked meals and select restaurants that serve plant based meals. But many have started going to Taco Bell and ordering Al Fresco because it is the most vegan friendly fast food items around. But we think you can do better. Plant  based ground meats seasoned in the same seasoning as ground beef, have identical taste and texture as the ground beef you are using now but without the animal cruelty, environmental consequences, or poor health effects of eating beef. Taco Bell, although it would be ideal to replace all of your ground beef with a plant based ground meat, we are asking you to provide menu items and combo items with plant based ground meat.  This will benefit your company with a massive influx of vegan customers as you will be the only fast food chain serving vegans.  Thank you for your time.

Make Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chips A Permanent Item

The Naked Chicken Chips at Taco Bell are just too good to get rid of. Make them a permanent item. If you are not completely on board yet, go to Taco Bell and order these triangles of heaven drizzled with cheesy nacho sauce. If you still aren't on board, God help you.

Plastic Polluting our Planet

Hello, everybody. My name is Amanda, and I'm 15 years old. I used to use a plastic straw every single day until I learned some facts about them. In the Los Angeles area alone, ten metric tons of plastic fragments—like grocery bags, straws, and soda bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day. Over the last ten years, we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the previous century. 50 percent of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. We currently recover only five percent of the plastics we produce. Why is that so bad? Well for starters 46 percent of plastics float (EPA 2006), and it can drift for years before eventually concentrating in the ocean gyres. It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade. One million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans. The body can absorb plastic chemicals—93 percent of Americans age six or older test positive for BPA (a synthetic chemical) Much more information can be found at https://www.ecowatch.com/22-facts-about-plastic-pollution-and-10-things-we-can-do-about-it-1881885971.html http://www.choosetogostrawless.com/ https://thelastplasticstraw.org/about-us/ http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.org/no-straw-please https://www.banthebottle.net/articles/its-not-just-the-bottle-the-ubiquity-of-the-plastic-straw/ Unfortunately, we can't reverse some of the things we've already done to this beautiful planet. What we can do is make some changes. Anything from asking for no straw, bring a reusable bag, use your own utensils (rather than disposable), buying from farmers markets, use a refillable cup/bottle, to making your staples yourself to avoid plastic can make a world (no pun intended) of difference. What I'm asking today, is that you sign this petition. Not that hard, right? :D I will be sending this request to places like Panera, Starbucks, Safeway, Dunkin Donuts, and more. What I'm asking of them is to use less plastic and styrofoam. To incorporate more recycling cans into their locations. To only give plastic bags to those who ask for them. To use paper straws rather than plastic. To find an alternative to Styrofoam takeout containers. To stop putting things in plastic that doesn't need to be. Have you ever seen the movie Wall-e? It stars a cute little robot who picks up trash. Remember how awful Earth looked? The whole time I was watching that movie I just wanted to go hug a tree (I didn't actually hug a tree). I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad about their choices, I'm just trying to inform! Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope we can work together to make 2018 a much friendlier place (for the people and the planet). <3

Dear Taco Bell, Recently I moved here to study. Everything has been going smooth. The Dutch people are nice. I'm starting to feel comfortable, almost as if I were at home. But there's only 1 thing missing.. Yes, you!! Please open at least 1 restaurant here. I can assure you 100% that you're going to make a lot of money. There's even this whole page on Facebook dedicated where people who miss you come to share their thoughts.

Bring back the Quesalupa

At 2:13 am on Saturday June 4th, 2016, my friends and I pulled into a Taco Bell drivethru for the sole purpose of ordering a quesalupa. The moment I had first tasted a Taco Bell quesalupa was the moment I truly understood what it meant to be alive. My tastebuds experienced an instant, flavor induced death and rebirth. My palate was forever changed. So pulling into that drivethru, I couldn't have been more excited. However, when I asked for a quesalupa,I was quickly informed that the quesalupa was discontinued and I would not be able to order it. I was outraged, heartbroken, and momentarily distraught. I was forced to settle for a regular chalupa. I can't imagine a world in which a person can not experience the gloriously, delicious taste of a quesalupa whenever they see fit, and so I am asking you all to join me in demanding that Taco Bell not only bring back the quesalupa, but make it a permanent menu item.
