Shop With Your Heart - Thanksgiving Shopping List

October 2, 2019

Thanksgiving

One thing we can all be grateful for this year is progress for farm animals. As consumers demand more humane alternatives to factory farming, companies and supermarkets are responding by stocking their shelves with plant-based and welfare-certified options.

We’ve crafted a holiday shopping list of the most festive products from our Shop With Your Heart Brand List that have either earned a meaningful animal welfare certification recognized by the ASPCA or are a plant-based alternative. Many of them are available to order online, right to your door! Whether you're looking to spruce up your recipe classics or try something new, there’s something here to delight everyone at the table. Make kindness a part of your family tradition. Happy Thanksgiving!

Look for the labels! These are the 3 certifications recognized by the ASPCA Shop With Your Heart program:

Animal Welfare Approved

 
Global Animal Partnership (GAP)
 

Certified Humane

Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) Global Animal Partnership (GAP) Step 2 and Up Certified Humane (CH)

Or look for 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.
