Every year hundreds of thousands of rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, cats and dogs are subjected to cruelty involved with testing personal care, cleaning and cosmetic products. Though 1,100 companies have banned animal testing, some companies still use cruel testing methods that are outdated and unnecessary. Innocent animals experience painful tests that often leave them with chronic infections, ulcers and blindness. Not to mention the fact that these animals are in kept in tiny cages for the majority of their lives which would cause extreme boredom and severe emotional stress.
Cosmetics testing on animals is banned in the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK, and the European Union has agreed to phase in a complete ban on all testing of cosmetics on animals but the United States and Australia (among other countries) need to catch up!
With alternative testing methods available and many companies already banning animal testing, there is absolutely no reason for these companies to continue to perform unnecessary and painful tests on innocent animals.
We need to put the pressure on and urge these companies to STOP testing on animals! consumer pressure = change!
This petition will be sent to the top companies who test on animals. Please sign so that these companies can see that we as consumers do not want to support this and that there is a demand for cruelty-free products.
Procter & Gamble, Avon, Uniliver, Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Johnson & Johnson and L'Oreal Paris are some of the largest cooperations that test on animals but to see a larger list of companies who test on animals and companies who DO NOT test on animals... see here: http://www.thekindlifestyle.com/p/cruelty-free-beauty-brands.html this petition will be sent to the list of companies that test on animals on this page.
