You can have a huge impact on the lives of farm animals by making a simple change. It’s easy to make a difference by switching to humane restaurants with the Humane Eating Project.
The Humane Eating Project is a mobile app that finds restaurants offering humanely-raised, vegan, and vegetarian options. It also shows Watch List restaurants to avoid – those selling the cruelest types of food. By using the app, you can promote restaurants that are doing the right thing, and change those that are not.
How Did We Get Here?
Over the years, factory farms have mostly replaced idyllic, family farms. Animal welfare laws have not kept up with the change. Profit and efficiency took priority over animal care, leading to a devastating impact on the lives of billions of farm animals.
How did this happen? Ignorance is bliss, and factory farms operate behind closed doors so that we can easily turn a blind eye. The issues are so egregious that they can become incomprehensible.
It’s easy to feel like the problem is so big that you don’t have any power to change it. But as a consumer, you do have power. Every time you spend money, your dollars act as a vote for that company, its products, and its practices.
Because of technology, consumers can organize their power easier than ever before. One way to harness this power is through the Humane Eating Project App. Make it your goal to eat exclusively at humane restaurants, and to never eat at Watch List restaurants. If enough of us do this, eventually it won’t be economical for factory farms to do business the old way. Together, we can change the system and alleviate a tremendous amount of animal suffering.
