Egg Vending Machine
“Unusual vending machine filled with sixteen real chickens was installed in the city center of Frankfurt, Germany”
“People initially thought that they would be able to buy fresh eggs from it - but instead, they were confronted with the message: “68% of all the chickens in the world are treated like egg-laying machines”.
Pedestrians were asked to only buy eggs from ethical egg farming.
After a short demonstration for their right to a fair life, all chickens were safely returned to their organic farm.”
