First Lady Gets a Talking-To from Kind Kids
The White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll is supposed to be a fun event for children, but one group of caring kids is giving the First Lady a shell of a time for wastefully using hens’ eggs in the event instead of reusable plastic or ceramic eggs. Check out their video heart-to-heart with Mrs. Obama:
As these kind kids point out, using real eggs isn’t only wasteful, it’s rotten to animals. Hens who are forced to lay eggs are crammed together in cages so small that they can’t even stretch their wings. PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk echoed the girls’ sentiments in a personal letter to Mrs. Obama, urging her to consider the harm this event does to animals.
Let’s hope these heartfelt pleas cause the First Lady to start a new tradition of using animal-friendly reusable eggs for the Easter Egg Roll. Each of us can do our part and give hens reason to celebrate this Easter by using cruelty-free, vegan, and re-usable eggs in our festivities instead of real eggs.
