You can send the example email below, or rewrite it. Here are some points you can include to make an impactful email:

- Egg-laying hens in the so-called ‘enriched cages’ have only the space of about an A4 sheet of paper.

- Almost all adult female pigs spend nearly half of every year inside crates, in which they cannot even turn around.
