Help The Caged Birds

Since both Whole Foods and Wild Oats have stopped selling eggs from caged birds this year (\ ), HSUS recently started correspondence with one of their top competitors, Trader Joe's, asking them to do the same. Unfortunately, it's became clear that the chain doesn't plan on ending its sale of battery cage eggs through correspondence alone.

Yesterday, HSUS sent out a press release ( ), put up a web story ( ), and sent an alert to more than 100,000 of our activists, urging Trader Joe's to stop selling eggs from caged birds.

A key component of this campaign will involve Trader Joe's hearing from its customers. If you're able to bring a customer comment card ( ) to a location near you, we'd really appreciate it. You can find your closest location at . Even just calling them to request a cage-free policy would be a big help.
