Shop With Your Heart - Summer BBQ Shopping List
You can improve the lives of animals even when kicking back and cooking out with family and friends. Just take this shopping list to your favorite grocery store in preparation for your next summer barbeque! These brands, deemed the most grillable offerings from our full Shop With Your Heart Brand List, have either earned a meaningful animal welfare certification recognized by the ASPCA or are a plant-based alternative. Whether you’re into traditional hot dogs and hamburgers or you’re a proud vegan, there’s a little something on this list for everyone.
Look for the labels! These are the 3 certifications recognized by the ASPCA Shop With Your Heart program:
|Animal Welfare Approved (AWA)||Global Animal Partnership (GAP) Step 2 and Up||Certified Humane (CH)|
(or a plant-based alternative, denoted by this icon !) When a product shows the basic GAP label without a number, look for separate language on the package identifying the product’s step level.
