Have you ever driven by a factory farm? You might not have known it was a factory farm by the looks of it, but you sure as hell could tell it was one by the smell. The truth of the matter is factory farming stinks (and I’m not just talking about the stench).
Here are my top 5 reasons why factory farming stinks:
1. Chickens killed for food in the United States are bred and drugged to grow so quickly that their hearts, lungs, and limbs often can’t keep up.
2. Hens used for their eggs live six or seven to a battery cage the size of a file drawer, thousands of which are stacked tier upon tier in huge, filthy warehouses.
3. Cows used for their milk are drugged and bred to produce unnatural amounts of milk; they have their babies stolen from them shortly after birth and sent to notoriously cruel veal farms so that humans can drink the calves’ milk.
4. Mother pigs on factory farms are confined to crates so small that they are unable to turn around or even lie down comfortably.

Not only do I think factory farming stinks, so do our friends at District Cotton, who created the amazing tee you see below. Lucky for you, we are giving away not one of these lovely tees, but five of them!
