Forbes Answers the Call for a Humane Economy

Publication looks to Humane Society CEO Wayne Pacelle to answer the question, "Can humans make a better world for animals?"

A feature published by media outlet Forbes spotlighted The Humane Society of the United States CEO (HSUS) Wayne Pacelle to answer the question, “Can humans make a better world for animals?” The story relied on Pacelle’s expertise and excerpts from his newly released book The Humane Economy and explained how recent HSUS animal-rights victories, including the commitment of McDonald’s to switch to cage-free eggs and eliminate the use of gestation crates in its supply chain, India and European Union’s ban on cosmetic testing, and SeaWorld’s decision to end captive orca breeding at its parks. “Changing the way we deal with animals comes down to individual action,” staff writer Ashlea Ebeling concluded before offering readers ideas for how they can promote a humane economy—such as using cosmetics not tested on animals, boycotting leather and fur goods, eating more plant-based foods, and joining animal-rights groups.
