Tips For An animal-friendly Easter
Some Easter traditions and treats may hide cruelty behind them
Whether you’re baking, decorating, or eating them, there is no denying that eggs are a huge part of the Easter season, growing in popularity and consumption every year. Everything revolves around colored eggs, chocolate eggs, or the symbol of the Easter bunny. Egg consumption rises sharply in the days around Easter due to many families believing they cannot do without colorful Easter eggs.
Worldwide, egg production continues to grow: Within 10 years, it has increased by nearly 25%. The biggest egg producer by far is China with around one third of the world production, followed by the EU, USA, and India, and these 4 produce almost 60% of the world’s eggs. This means that the top 10 egg producers account for more than 3⁄4 of the world’s egg production.
