Back by popular demand … it’s the “I Am Not A Nugget” fitted tee!
If you wouldn’t eat your dog or cat, why eat a chicken or a pig? They all have the same ability to love and experience pleasure, and they are all capable of feeling pain and sadness. Yet every year, millions of animals are raised for food on factory farms and slaughtered in horrifying conditions.
Chickens have their delicate legs slammed into metal shackles, which can result in broken bones, extreme bruising, and hemorrhaging. They often have their throats slit while still conscious. Millions more are scalded to death in defeathering tanks—again while still conscious and able to feel pain! These are just some of the abuses that chickens raised for food endure everyday in a system where profit reigns and where these intelligent birds are treated as nothing more than commodities.
We might not be able to put a stop to this industry—yet!—but we can make a difference every day by making the compassionate choice to enjoy vegan foods every time we sit down to eat. Haven’t gone vegan yet? Check out our list of three things to expect after going vegan, then go for it!
