ASPCA Shop With Your Heart #ShopWithYourHeart

Everything Mommyhood has teamed up with the ASPCA for a social good post on the treatment of farm animals. We were not compensated for this posting!

Aside from the people who are vegan, most everyone I know buys meat, eggs, or dairy at some point during the week/month/year. And those of you who do – have much more buying power than you probably even realize. By buying welfare-certified animal products, or more plant-based products, you send a strong message to food companies that you care about the treatment of farm animals.

Just an average size family spends hundreds of dollars a month on meat. Imagine if every single consumer used that buying power to purchase welfare-certified meat instead of the meat from inhumane factory farms. What a difference that would make!

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 launched by the ASPCA gives consumers the resources to recognize, locate and demand meaningfully welfare-certified meat, eggs and dairy products as well as plant-based alternatives.

    I have never thought about each consumers buying power in this way prior to reading this post. I am enlightened and will use my power going forward. I can’t stand to see anyone/anything suffering especially when it could be prevented.

  6. Olivine Eyes says:

    I could do without dairy(I don’t like cheese or butter, and can do with sweet milk substitutes), but meat is another story.

  7. Thanks for sharing. I had no idea farm animals were so mistreated. I will look for the meats at my local store.
