The Make it Possible campaign suggests factory farming would slow down if the demand for meat wasn’t so high, and encourages eating less of it, or none at all. A longer explanation of the campaign, along with a few clips of behind-the-scenes practices at CAFOs and earnest appearances from Australian celebrities, follows the two-minute song.
