Big companies have announced changes in favor of animal welfare in the past few months, as Ringling Brothers retired its circus elephants, and Walmart became the most recent corporation to shift towards cage-free eggs. Wayne Pacelle, president of The Humane Society of the United States, explains how consumers can influence business decisions. He joins us to talk about his new book, “The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals,” and about other current animal welfare issues.
