Hyderabad bags PETA India award for most vegan-friendly city for 2019

November is observed as World Vegan Month, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India commemorated it by declaring Hyderabad as the winner of its Most Vegan-Friendly City Award for 2019.

The Telangana capital bagged the title on account of having a number of vegan restaurants, dessert offerings, and community. A certificate and congratulatory letter have been delivered to the city’s mayor, Bonthu Rammohan, for fostering an environment in which vegan-friendly establishments can thrive, making the world a better place for humans, other animals, and the planet.
 
The city's top vegan eateries include The Terrasen Café – Poets and Oats, a 100 per cent vegan restaurant, café, and bakery thatdishes up everything from pizza and burgers to smoothies and sandwiches, and Smart Alec Alternative Deli, a vegan deli that offers fresh fare and a play area for companion animals.

Those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth can try Cookie Queen or The Lush Glaze, order creamy dairy-free ice cream from delivery service Frozera and Frostie, or swing by Plantarium, the city's first all-vegan store, which stocks an array of vegan treats, cosmetics, protein mixes, and more. And there’s no shortage of vegan spirit, as Hyderabad is also home to potlucks and other events organised by the Hyderabad Vegans group.

“Global interest in a vegan lifestyle has never been higher, and Hyderabad is leading the country in responding to it,” stated PETA India vegan outreach coordinator Kiran Ahuja, adding, “PETA India is honouring this special city for its growing vegan community and wealth of animal-free food options, and we encourage the city’s residents and visitors to take full advantage of them.”
 
PETA India, whose motto reads, in part, that animals are not ours to eat, noted that every person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, fishing, egg, and dairy industries.

Chickens’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious, fish suffocate on the decks of fishing boats, pigs are stabbed in the heart as they scream in pain, and calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth. At the slaughterhouse, animals are often killed in full view of others, and may be dismembered while they are still conscious.
 
Vegans are less prone to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity than meat-eaters are, and they have a smaller carbon footprint, as raising animals for food is one of the largest sources of the greenhouse-gas emissions that have been linked to climate change.
