I have two things to share with you today. First, there is something to said about buying cruelty free products. When I purchase local, as an example, I know that my family is eating the highest quality meat and dairy. Farmers tend to take a lot of pride in their livestock and produce and they play a vital role in our economy.
Second If you purchase meat, eggs or dairy, you have more power than you know. 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.
Today, let me invite you to make the pledge to be a more welfare-conscious shopper with the ASPCA. 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.
Improving the lives of farm animals is not only the humane thing to do, but it is the smart move for the quality of the foods you feed your family. If we demand that our food is produced in healthier and humane ways it will be healthier food.
