High street chain Marks & Spencer has won an award for its new vegan food and fashion products.

The Vegan-Friendly High-Street Retailer Award, from animal rights charity PETA, also recognizes M&S’ new ‘vegan’ logo which adorns its food and fashion items.

The food range – Plant Kitchen – includes more than 50 dishes including No Beef Burgers, Cauliflower Popcorn Bites, and coleslaw. Its shoe range boasts more than 350 styles for men, women, and children, including high heels, trainers, and slippers.

Vegan award

“From its fresh, ready-made vegan fare to its stylish animal-free accessories, Marks & Spencer is ticking all the boxes when it comes to ethical food and fashion,” PETA Director of Corporate Projects, Yvonne Taylor, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“PETA is recognizing this iconic high-street retailer for keeping step with the burgeoning demand for animal-friendly options and for helping to move Britain in a kinder and more sustainable direction with its easily identifiable ‘vegan’ labeling.”

“Turning animal skin into garments and accessories requires massive amounts of energy and dangerous chemicals, which are harmful to the planet,” added PETA.

“The Pulse of the Fashion Industry report revealed that three of the four most environmentally damaging materials are animal-derived. Leather was identified as the most polluting material in fashion, with double the impact of polyurethane (PU) leather.”
