How You Can Help (The 3 R’s)

Incorporate the three R’s (refinement, replacement, and reduction) into your life:

 

Replacement

Grocery stores now have a large assortment of products to replace those traditionally obtained from animals who are intensively confined. These vegetarian and vegan alternatives include veggie burgers, non-dairy milk, tofu, tempeh, and even fake chicken fingers and sandwich meat. Demand for these products is growing and you can find these items in your local grocery store.

Reduction

Reducing our consumption of animal products is the ultimate way to reduce animal suffering. Check out animal-free recipes and try starting a Meatless Monday policy in your household and school today.

Individual choices can make a difference in the lives of animals. Did you know:

Refinement

More and more producers are raising animals in more natural settings, allowing animals fresh air and more room to perform natural behaviors. Refining your diet by choosing products from humanely raised animals instead of conventional products from intensive farm operations helps ensure animals live a better life. Find information on our website about where to find animal products from farms that have higher standards of care for animals.

Here are some ways to refine your diet for different types of animal products:

The emerging field of cultured meat, or meat that is grown in a lab, also called “cellular agriculture,” is a revolutionary new way to think of refining your diet. Rather than killing an animal, cultured meat can be grown from just a few animal tissue cells. 

Support legislative action:

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, over 9 billion land animals are slaughtered each year for their meat, eggs and milk (this number does not include fish and seafood consumption). No federal laws protect farm animals from cruelty and most states exempt farm animals from their animal cruelty statutes.

Some progress has been made to outlaw three types of housing systems in factory farming: veal crates for male dairy calves, gestation crates for pregnant pigs, and battery cages that house hens used for egg production. Massachusetts is one of the states to prohibit these production methods, and the sale of products made from animals raised using the production methods, with the passing of Ballot Question 3 in 2016.
