Mother cows, to ensure a near-constant supply of milk, endure a never-ending cycle of cruelty – artificial insemination, pregnancy, birth, and finally having their young calves torn away and shoved into tiny plastic hutches. As Mothers here at girliegirlarmy.com, we cannot imagine the pain these sentient beings endure, and this is one of the many reasons we choose vegan.
Agri-plastics, the company that makes these inhumane hutches, has now partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and is making pink hutches for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in a campaign called, “Hutches for Hope.”
Using breast cancer awareness to market this product, a practice commonly known as “pinkwashing,” is astounding hypocritical. Agri-plastics is proclaiming it cares about the reproductive health of women, while blatantly exploiting and manipulating the health of female cows.
And, dairy production isn’t just bad for cows – it is also known for its harmful impacts on human health and the environment.
Sign the petition now and tell Agri-plastics: We’re on to you! Stop using breast cancer awareness to market your products and mask the cruelty of the dairy industry.
