Things are not always what they appear to beBig businesses often try to trick us by using images of happy animals in green pastures and words like “free-range” on their products, but don’t be fooled. Animals used for food and clothing want you to take a closer look.

Next time you see pictures of happy cows smiling or hens roaming in pastures on the products you buy, think twice. Don’t let these images play tricks on you! There’s no such thing as “humane meat.” And together, we can keep companies from lying about it. The only way to ensure that animals don’t suffer is by not eating or wearing them.
