It seems like a no-brainer to purposely pick cage-free eggs.
What kind of a person wants animals to suffer if they don’t have to?
A terrible person.
What kind of person has, up until now, always chosen the cheapest eggs without bothering to think about what that meant for the animals they came from?
A somewhat terrible person.
What kind of person finally made a conscious effort to act like the sort of person she wants to be instead of the sort of person she ultimately is, with the hope that if she mimics a decent human being over and over, eventually she might really be one?
A somewhat delusional person–but a delusional person who’s trying to start good habits, despite feeling a pang in her chest when she realizes the cage-free eggs are 3 times the price of ethically questionably procured eggs.
And that’s the kind of person I can live with being.
