Never heard of cage-free eggs? They are readily available at your local grocery store, and sometimes your farmers market (as long as you know the farm conditions that they come from!). This handy Egg Buying Guide from WSPA helps you #giveacluck and make smart decisions while you are grocery shopping.
I found my cage-free eggs by Rowe Farms in the organic section of the supermarket, and made sure to use the Egg Buying Guide to be certain that they fell under the regulations for cage-free. I was happy to find that there were actually about six different options, and none of them were expensive by any means ($5.50 and under!)
So what is WSPA doing to encourage the cage-free movement? Well they are educating and empowering families to make the switch to cage-free eggs, and encouraging them to sign the Pledge To Choose Cage-Free as well. Such an easy thing to do to help raise awareness, and a great step to take for your family to be a little kinder to the world around them.
WSPA is also encouraging farmers to take a stand and make a change for the better by providing their animals with better living conditions. Change is possible, but it has to start somewhere!
