Do you care about the quality of the food you eat? Do you care about the way the animals have been treated that become the food you eat? I do!
The ASPCA is trying to bring together people who care and has launched a new initiative to improve the lives of farm animals called Shop With Your Heart.
Now, YOU can make the pledge to be a more welfare-conscious shopper. Everyone who signs the pledge also gains access to an exclusive Shop With Your Heart Grocery List, including welfare-certified and widely available plant-based brands.
As you may already know, most of the nearly 9 billion animals raised for meat, milk and eggs in the US are suffering in inhumane factory farms. And animals are not the only affected, as factory farms impact human health—they can be breeding grounds for dangerous pathogens and the antibiotics used to prevent disease create the potential for dangerous, drug-resistant bacteria to develop. To fully harness the power of our collective purchases and demand better lives for farm animals, the Shop With Your Heart initiative gives consumers the resources to recognize, locate and demand meaningfully welfare-certified meat, eggs and dairy products as well as plant-based alternatives. – From the ASPCA
