Easter 2024 is almost here and with it… chocolate. Whether you like dark, milk, or white chocolate, there are now a huge variety of vegan Easter eggs that everyone can enjoy. With dairy-free chocolate ever easier to find, chocolate lovers don’t have to miss out on the Easter festivities by choosing to have a plant-based Easter.

Why go vegan this Easter?

Coinciding with the start of Spring, Easter is a time of new beginnings in more ways than one.

For Christians, specifically, Easter is a time of joy and hope. A recent video series of interviews with vegan vicars shone a light on the joy of living a compassionate life that does not involve harming animals. The vicars stressed the need for compassion in humanity’s relationship with animals. “Our fellow creatures were made to praise God,” says The Revd John Ryder in the series. “A creature cannot praise God from your plate.”

Leave lamb off your plate

For some people, roast lamb is a traditional Easter meal. That meal is a baby as young as ten weeks old.

On average, lambs are slaughtered at six months. To be ready for Easter, ewes are forcibly impregnated unnaturally early, which results in many suffering and some dying from the winter temperatures.

In slaughterhouses, workers slit lambs throats. Lambs are usually stunned first but this is not always effective. Therefore some lambs are partially or fully conscious as they bleed to death.

Most importantly, there is no need to torture a sentient being to enjoy an Easter tradition. Vegan versions of lamb are now available in supermarkets such as Aldi. There are also abundant vegan Easter recipes you can make that don’t involve suffering and slaughter.

Visit a sanctuary

As Spring comes around again, many commercial petting zoos and farms open their doors to visitors. Although stroking fluffy animals might seem like a good day out for the whole family, petting zoos and farms are widely regarded as cruel.

First, they can be highly stressful for the animals, who are not given a choice of whether they want to be petted. Moreover, since petting zoos are commercial businesses, they exist to make profit. As such, if an animal loses their “cuteness,” they may be sent to slaughter.

In contrast, vegan sanctuaries offer animals rescued from animal abuse industries a “forever home,” where they can live out their life free from fear and exploitation. Many animals love to have cuddles with visitors, meaning you won’t miss out on the joys of connecting with an animal. The difference is that the animals at sanctuaries are not exploited for profit and are free to live how they want to.

So, if you’re planning a trip out to see some cute animals this Easter, choose to visit happy animals at a sanctuary, not captive animals at a petting zoo or farm.

Ditch the dairy and buy vegan Easter eggs

The dairy industry is widely seen as cruel. Milk comes from mothers, and cows used in the dairy industry are forcibly impregnated before having their babies taken from them hours after birth. Like humans, cows form powerful bonds with their children, and they will often cry out and bellow for days after they are gone.

“Dairy cows” spend much of their lives in pain. Repeated pregnancies, milking, and standing in cramped, dirty conditions wear our cows’ bodies. Once their milk production falters, cows will be sent to the slaughterhouse. 

Choosing dairy-free chocolate and other vegan milk alternatives such as oat milk will ensure you are not contributing to this cruelty.

Chocolate is everywhere at Easter, but many big-brand Easter eggs contain dairy milk.
