#TurnYourNoseUp at pig factories!

Celebs like: Ricky Gervais, Jamie Oliver, Jane Goodall and Lily Cole have all joined the campaign

NEWS ALERT Government report warns that antibiotic resistant superbugs could kill 3 people every second by 2050, and that "large numbers of animals living in close proximity, or in non-hygienic conditions can act as a reservoir of resistance and accelerate its spread." This is exactly why we launched the #TurnYourNoseUp campaign! 25% of all antibiotics sold in the UK are used to keep pigs alive in unhealthy, overcrowded conditions. We can save antibiotics for human use by joining the call from over 100 high profile individuals to only buy pork with high animal welfare labels. Ricky Gervais, Jamie Oliver, Moby, Hugh Grant, Jane Goodall, Rory Bremner and Lily Cole have all joined the campaign. As a result, the campaign has already reached 80 million people on Twitter, the video has been seen over 120,000 times across all channels; and over 150 people have posted selfies in support. Let's not stop there! Please watch & share the video by posting one of the sample #TurnYourNoseUp tweets below (and even better, include your selfie!) on your social channels. Let's see how many more millions we can reach!
