Stop Supporting Factory Farm Cruelty


Starbucks is supposed to stand for something more than coffee. They even have an animal welfare policy that claims to opposed cruelty to animals. So why is Starbucks supporting intensive confinement of animals?

Battery cage farms cram egg-laying hens into tiny wire cages. With less room than a sheet of computer paper to live in for virtually their entire lives, these poor animals are unable to spread their wings or engage in any of their natural behaviors. This outdated agricultural practice is so cruel that it is already illegal in the entire European Union and several states in the US.

Thankfully, we've also seen lots of movement away from battery cages in the private sector, too. In the last few years, some of the worlds largest restaurant chains and food service providers—places like Aramark, Sodexo, McDonalds, and more—have made commitments to phase out this horrible practice from their supply chain. Despite this progress, Starbucks sources the vast majority of their eggs from cruel battery cage farms.

Please, sign our petition and let Starbucks know that consumers do not want to be supporting this kind of extreme animal cruelty with their dining dollars. It's time for Starbucks to do the right thing and end their support of farms that still use outdated battery cage systems.
