Paul Shapiro’s Animal News You Can Use: do you ride the train?  »


Need more evidence that the trend of meat-free eating is firmly cemented into the mainstream? Ride an Amtrak train and check out the cover feature of the magazine in the back of every seat. The teaser says it all: “Going meatless isn’t just for rock stars, former presidents and other celebrities. There’s a cultural shift afoot toward a more healthful, humane, and environmentally sound lifestyle.”

You’ve heard that Hampton Creek is a promising start-up aiming to compete with the egg industry. But did you know what wild success the company is having with its product? Forbes has the story.

HSUS’s battle to close a loophole in the federal rule prohibiting slaughter of downer cattle continues. This radio story has the deets.

We’re also in high-gear in Massachusetts with a campaign to ban battery cages, gestation crates, and veal crates. You can read more about our event there yesterday in Boston Magazine.

Have a great weekend!
