Where Are the Eggs? 蛋到哪去了？
Hampton Creek is a smart, new company in California that's making a splash in the food industry. It produces foods such as mayonnaise and cookies using plant-based products as a substitute for eggs. The company's goal is to reduce the number of eggs eaten around the world. Why?
The egg industry wastes precious natural resources and pollutes the environment. In addition, hens that are raised to produce eggs are kept together in small spaces. Not only is this cruel, but it could also cause the start of diseases such as avian flu. Lastly, taking eggs out of the diet can lead to better health, especially in countries where people eat a lot of meat.
The company is currently developing new products as well as putting an effort into convincing other food companies to go eggless. Although not everyone is ready to give up chicken eggs, Hampton Creek's efforts may be a step in the right direction for a healthier and cleaner future.
