I just found this campaign by Compassion Over Killing and thinks it's a great idea.

Do they still use HFCS and azodiacarbonamide in their breads? I love their sammies but I am avoiding those two ingredients.

You could still sign the petition, regardless. The more meat free options are out there in the world, the easier it will be for people to make compassionate choices. It will diminish excuses against vegetarianism.

You might also want to read this good article I recommend to a lot of people called "How Vegan?" that addresses the difference between 99% vegan and 99.9% vegan and if it actually helps advocacy campaigns to be too over zealous with our ingredient witch hunt.

There's also a campaign to get Dunkin' Donuts to add vegan options: http://dunkincruelty.com/
Both the DD & Subway campaigns are being done by Compassion Over Killing.

Remember, folks, every time a mainstream restaurant or grocery store adds another vegan or even meat free option to the menu, that's a potential major victory for the animals. When we choose to do one thing, we're choosing not to do another. When someone buys a Boca burger or something at Wal-Mart instead of a beef burger, even if Wal-Mart is an unethical company over all, it's still a good thing on some level because that specific purchase did not go towards cruel industries. This is a less ideological approach to veg*n activism but it has tangible effects that can ripple throughout society. A girl called me out on Facebook just yesterday for promoting Silk brand soymilk. I asked her why she felt that promoting a product that didn't directly keep the dairy industry afloat could be a bad thing.

Apparently, some stores are trying out falafel:http://www.npr.org/blogs/waitwait/20...lafel-footlong

Doesn't look too promising, but um, possibly....

Hell yes. That's progress. But only if veg*ns actually SUPPORT the progress by going out and buying those items from Subway.

so they already have those tofurky sandwiches in America? I hope we get it here too. I will start checking it out when they will be in America. will suck if they start selling them and nobody buys because vegetarians don't eat there and don't know

Tofurky is available in health food stores here in the US. I'm surprised it isn't in Canada.

There's no way tofurky or gardein would be cost-effective enough for Subway to carry them; they're just too expensive, and not enough people would order them.

It would be nice, though. Well, gardein would be nice...tofurky's gross.

Hmm..well I remember last year Chiptole had a few restaurants test out adding gardein to their menus. I'm not sure how that all worked out though. I'm assuming not too well since it hasn't gone nationwide but then again Subway has way more customers than Chiptole does because they have more restaurants. I think Subway would have more success.

Cost-effective? All they have to do is sell the product for more than it costs them. In major cities, I can see that, especially in the beginning when all vegans get excited.

And when nobody orders it, you're left with very expensive product that goes to waste. Subway already has a veg*n option that costs them nothing to keep on the menu; it's zero-risk.

Hell, they don't even bother carrying the garden burger patties anymore. There's just no incentive.

You can contact Subway directly, which is even better, by going to this link: http://www.subway.com/Applications/C...erService.aspx
"I am writing to request that Subway add vegan meats. I travel often and Subway would be my place of choice if it offered vegan meats. Thank you."

That's a good point about waste. They used to have veggie burgers but stopped?

Yeah, they used to have long, sub-shaped gardenburger patties. They were pretty good.

A gardein "chicken" sub would be awesome, though.

I go to subway all the time, and although the veggie patty isn't vegan, I still have a good ass sub

Bonn, thank you for the link, looks like my bread is OK! Though my spicy mustard and the veggie patties aren't, amazing how animals products get snuck into everything.
