From an early age, Simone's mother instilled in her the importance of loving and respecting all living beings, a gift that she is actively passing on to her own children. Simone has a son who will shortly be three years old, so learning that pigs had the intelligence of a 3 year old child only increased her horror at how mother pigs were treated in factory farms.
Like many Australians learning for the first time about the treatment of chickens and pigs in factory farms, Simone finds it unfathomable that our laws have failed to protect them from such treatment.
Her message to all mothers as they do their weekly shopping for the family — is that through the choices that we make when we shop — we can create a kinder world now, and ensure that it is a legacy of kindness that we leave behind.
If you do too, join others who are making a kinder world for animals possible. Sign the pledge.
