My buddy Josh Balk at the Humane Society emailed me:
We recently have gone after Tim Hortons (a big Canadian fast food chain with locations in the U.S.) for their support of battery cages and gestation crates:
They got A TON of negative publicity about it. Instead of making changes, they just released this greenwashing video about how great they are to animals:
Nothing pisses me off more than companies that profit from animal cruelty, who deliberately misrepresent the truth.
We’ve got the power to keep Tim Hortons from tricking consumers. I hope you’ll click through to this video and click the “thumb down” icon beneath it. As of this morning, 53 people have clicked thumbs up while a whopping 484 people clicked thumbs down.
