There’s no excuse for hurting and killing animals for the sake of make-up, soap and other things! Fortunately Instead, companies have developed new, humane testing methods to ensure that their products don’t harm humans or animals🐰👧🏻
In March 2013, a new European Union (EU) law was fully implemented that made it illegal to sell animal-tested cosmetics in Europe, even if the testing was done outside Europe. This sales ban made it clear that animal testing is wrong and also that profiting from this is immoral.Since this major companies have turned their backs completely on animal testing and no longer use ingredients that were tested on animals – and a number of animal tests have been completely replaced with superior, cheaper and more effective non-animal methods. YAY!
In 2009, these tests were banned in Europe, but products tested elsewhere could still be imported.This is SO important because many large markets, such as China, are demanding that cosmetics be tested on animals. Because of this, the only way to be completely sure that you aren’t indirectly supporting animal testing is to continue to purchase products only from companies that don’t test on animals. So how do you know which do and which don’t?
Ever heard of Lush? Oh I’m sure you have they have the coolest things that are not tested on animals! They are all vegan and vegetarian and they all smell AMAZING! All there ingredients are fair trade too what more could you ask for in a company?! They also sell the most amazing fighting animal testing bags, all there bottles and tubs which the products are in are recyclable! If you take back 5 black pots from there shop you get a free FRESH face mask, ever tried them? If not then your missing out! They also do so much for so many different charities. So make sure you head down to your Lush store and get some amazing cruelty free products! Ps some also have a spa which do amazing treatments!🙊https://www.lush.co.uk
There is also an amazing organisation called Leaping bunny! Very cute 🐰
They make cruelty free shopping so much easier as it can be very misleading we want to make sure our money isn’t getting turned into blood money funding animal testing! So they made it easy for us by stamping each cruelty free product with a leaping bunny sign! Yay! Also to make it even easier you can order a free pocket book called “the little book of cruelty free” perfect size to fit into you purse/wallet! Full of brands from make up to house products who do not test on animals! http://www.leapingbunny.org
There are so many shops close to home who’s own brands don’t test on animals! Such as co-operative, morrisons and SuperDrug! 🙉
Why are millions of animals STILL suffering in laboratories? There’s no justifiable reason. Companies do not need to torture animals in order to test mascara, shampoo, detergent, or other household products. Scientists do not have to torment monkeys in order to cure a disease. There are so many ways you can help!
1. Always buy cruelty free products. ALWAYS look for the leaping bunny sign! 🐰 and lush.. They have bunnys everywhere!
2. Educate others! Don’t leave people in the dark about the horrors of animal experiments. Knowledge is power! Brush up on the facts so if anyone asks any questions you can be the best animal defender you can!
3. Leave your body to science! Might sound scary but consider leaving your body to science to help scientists, doctors, and medical students advance their research and training without hurting animals. You won’t have any use for it, and wouldn’t it be lovely to know that even after you’re gone, you can still help animals?
4. Donate and help out as much as you can! Ever heard of Dr Hadwen? Well they are doing so many scientific research WITHOUT animals! And so many people need to know about this! WE DONT NEED ANIMALS FOR EXPERIMENTS! 🙊🐰🐭http://www.drhadwentrust.org/supporters/supporters
