Wyndham: Stop Animal Cruelty
This petition made change with 11,628 supporters!
If Wyndham ran its hotels, resorts, and vacation rentals the way its egg suppliers run their factory farms, they would be filthy, small, overcrowded, and unsafe. Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and Wyndham Destinations have a dark secret. Millions of egg-laying hens throughout Wyndham’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.
Hundreds of 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, Hilton Hotels, Best Western, 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.
Wyndham has recognized that cages are inhumane and outdated. In 2017, Wyndham Worldwide promised guests that it would go 100% cage-free globally, and Wyndham received public praise for the pledged move to higher welfare standards. In 2018, Wyndham Worldwide spun off into two companies -- both still holding the Wyndham name -- and deleted its cage-free commitment. Hens are still needlessly suffering for Wyndham. Customers are tired of false promises and hollow commitments.
Wyndham Destinations says: “we believe in hospitality with heart.” Wyndham Hotels and Resorts proudly states: “we hold ourselves to the highest standards. We’re responsible, truthful and transparent. We do the right thing...we honor our commitments.” It’s time for both these companies to take their words seriously; to do the right thing, act transparently, and show compassion to millions of animals that are suffering. It’s time to follow-through on their commitment and work to meet basic animal welfare standards. It’s time for all of Wyndham’s brands to make good on the promise to finally go 100% cage-free globally.
Please sign this petition to tell Wyndham that you won’t be staying at any of their hotels until it stops supporting this egregious animal abuse.
