Tell Starbucks: Commit to a 100% Cage-Free Egg Policy

Starbucks prides itself on its social responsibility. They've made attempts to be a greener company, focusing on saving water and recycling. They even have vegan options. But the coffee giant has still not made an important commitment to animal welfare by switching to a 100% cage-free egg policy. 

In the United States, millions of hens are currently kept in battery cages, cages so small they do not have room to spread their wings. They are kept in filthy conditions, and do not receive veterinary care. Cage-free hens are able to walk around, and they have two to three times the amount of space as those kept in cages.

Cage-free facilities not only improve the lives of hens, but also reduce public health risks. Cage-free facilities have significantly lower rates of salmonella than cage facilities do.

Sign the petition to urge Starbucks to adopt a 100% cage-free egg policy.

      Sometimes I wish I lived in Seattle. That city makes a mean vegan sandwich, brews a terrific cup of coffee, and now Washington animal welfare activists are pushing to ban battery cages in the Evergreen State. I've also heard that all Seattleites are...

      There are starbucks in New Zealand and I will encourage others to boycott Starbucks until this company can be transparent, ethical, in its business practices and can commit to optimising animal welfare as a top priority. Starbucks you can do it. Buy free range eggs and reject any products produced by cruel unethical unloving practices.

      I don't buy products from Starbucks as I see them as over-priced and frivolous, but a lot of people do and it is always wrong that animals should suffer.

      I don't care if your eggs are in a cage but I'd certainly like it if you had free range chickens. Who would have thought you would do that! No more Starbucks for me till things change.
