Did you know that the majority of meat found in grocery stores and restaurants in the United States comes from factory farms? Confinement systems cram animals into battery cages barely larger than their bodies.
They spend their entire lives crammed into these filthy cages only to be pumped full of food and hormones. There are a couple ways you can take action to reduce the suffering of farm animals:
1. Become a flexitarian! If you’re not ready to give up meat, reduce the amount of meat you eat. Try eating one meal a day or going one full day a week without animal-based products. Trust us, you won’t miss it!
Here’s a tip to help you get started: Greens are an amazing powerhouse food full of protein, calcium, and vitamins that are easily absorbed by your body. A meal full of greens and veggies will leave you full, satisfied, and healthy.
2. Switch to cage free eggs – it’s the easiest way to impact the lives of thousands of animals. Hens confined in battery cages have less space than a piece of paper. People who eat eggs from battery cages are 200x more likely to contract salmonella. For only pennies more, switching to cage free eggs will save animals and reduce your risk of illness.
