The campaigners point out that most animal products are produced through intensive farming, which they say causes immeasurable suffering and inflicts colossal damage on nature and the climate. They argue that since tobacco advertising has been banned due to the harm it causes, the same should apply to meat.

VEGCONOMIST: Adfree Cities, a network of groups challenging corporate outdoor advertising, is calling for meat advertising to be banned in the UK.

The campaigners point out that most animal products are produced through intensive farming, which they say “causes immeasurable suffering and inflicts colossal damage on nature and the climate”. They argue that since tobacco advertising has been banned due to the harm it causes, the same should apply to meat.

To accompany the campaign, Adfree Cities has published a report called The Cows Aren’t Laughing, outlining nine tactics commonly used by advertisers to obscure the realities of meat, dairy, and egg production…

To achieve a ban or reduction in meat advertising, Adfree Cities suggests the following policies:

– Call on MPs to ban advertising for damaging and polluting products.
– Introduce ethical and low-carbon advertising policies at a council level.
– Expose misleading advertising by complaining to the Advertising Standards Authority.
– Reduce the number of billboard and bus stop ads; those interested in getting involved with this are invited to join their local AdBlock group, or start their own.

“This is a call to everyone who cares about a more sustainable, kinder food system: let’s challenge misinformation and end advertising for factory-farmed food,” says AdFree Cities. SOURCE…
