Since eggs are widely used in many food products, if they can be replaced on a large scale, it would not only alleviate animal cruelty, but help us move towards a more sustainable food system that meets the future demands of a growing global population.

De Mello’s methods have been so successful that they are now being used in 150 other schools around Brazil and have attracted international attention from educators in other countries such as Germany.
