Take the Pledge

Whenever we buy eggs – or any product made with eggs – we’re making a choice about the kind of food we want to serve at our table, as well as the kind of world in which we want to live.

Today, hundreds of millions of hens are condemned to lives of intense pain and suffering, squeezed into cages so small they can’t stretch their wings or even turn around. These chickens – intelligent, social animals – are happier, healthier and less prone to injury when they are cage-free. And eggs from caged hens have a higher risk of Salmonella contamination.

It doesn’t have to be this way. As consumers, we have the power to say no to caged egg production. By choosing to buy cage-free eggs at the grocery store, you are supporting the farmers who are giving hens the freedom to move around and behave naturally. And by encouraging restaurants and food manufacturers to source their eggs from cage-free suppliers, you’re spreading the message even more widely.

Change is possible – it starts with a simple choice.

Join World Animal Protection in our fight to stop the cruel and inhumane treatment of egg-laying hens. As our numbers grow, more and more retailers, restaurants and institutions will take notice. Take the Cage-Free Pledge, and encourage your family and friends to do the same.

I pledge to help end this cycle of cruelty by...

  1. Only buying eggs that are produced without the use of cages
  2. Encouraging restaurants to use cage-free eggs and eating at restaurants that do
  3. Talking to my family and friends about the issue of caged egg production and spreading the word about how they can help

About the campaign

Choose Cage Free is an initiative by World Animal Protection to educate consumers about the real living conditions of hens in cages. We are empowering everyone to commit to cage-free eggs and are working with farmers and businesses to adopt cage-free practices. With your support, we can ultimately improve the lives of millions of hens. Change is possible!
