Hilton: End Animal Cruelty
This petition made change with 6,476 supporters!
If Hilton ran its hotels the way its egg suppliers run their factory farms, they would be filthy, small, overcrowded, and unsafe. Hilton brands itself as an upscale and luxurious hotel company, but it has a dark secret. Millions of egg-laying hens throughout Hilton’s global supply chain suffer in cruel cages.
These cages are so small and packed with birds that the hens can’t do anything that is natural or important to them. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates.
Over 1,500 companies around the world are ditching cages. Global commitments to go cage-free are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Marriott International, Accor Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Unilever, Nestle, Lidl, Aldi, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez, and Compass Group. Even low-end fast food companies and US prisons are moving away from this horrible practice.
Hilton has recognized that cages are inhumane and outdated. It made cage-free commitments in 19 of the 106 countries in which it operates. Hilton promised customers that it would go cage-free by 2017, and received public praise for the pledged move to higher welfare standards. Unfortunately, Hilton failed to go cage-free in some of the countries that it promised and millions of hens continue to suffer for Hilton worldwide. Customers are tired of false promises and hollow commitments.
Hilton says: “one thing has always remained true – we are a group of people who are deeply committed to making our world a better place through our hospitality.” Hilton has the power to make our world a better, more humane place for animals. It’s time for Hilton to finally go 100% cage-free globally.
Please sign this petition to tell Hilton that you won’t be staying at any of their hotels until it stops supporting this egregious animal abuse.
