Battery cage egg farms are also incredibly unsustainable and environmentally destructive. National environmental organizations like the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Sierra Club, and the National Environmental Trust all strongly condemn battery cage egg farming for its destructive impact on the environment, and encourage consumers and schools to switch to cage-free eggs.
Hundreds of other schools around the country have made a switch to cage-free, including other Indiana institutions like Earlham College, Wabash College and Tri-State University, and other state schools like the University of Wisconsin, University of Minnesota, University of Texas, University of Missouri and others. Sadly Indiana University continues to purchase cruel and unsustainable battery cage eggs for our cafeterias.
It is very important that Indiana University's Dining Services hear from students and faculty who are concerened with this issue. Please sign the petition asking Indiana University to go cage-free!
