What do Sally Hansen, Bobbi Brown, Clairol, Arm & Hammer and Estee Lauder have in common?
They all still test on animals. Isn’t that so 1970’s? Click here to get a complete list – I was very disappointed to see some of the names there…
Guess what else– 96% of dogs used in testing are Beagles, primarily for product and drug testing.
The same traits which make beagles such excellent family dogs also work against them when it comes to testing, poking and prodding. They are friendly animals who rarely bite and adjust well to whatever is thrown at them.
I was horrified! I don’t know why, but I just assumed animal testing was passé. I guess ignorance is bliss … You can check here for a comprehensive list from PETA of those who do and don’t test on animals.
So, I have made a conscience effort to start changing my spending habits – I will be sharing some cruelty-free alternatives that I have already fallen in love with (and some that aren’t too hot).
And I found my reward for when I hit my goal weight – this adorable shirt! And I love that I would be supporting the Beagle Freedom Fund. They do wonderful things to find these poor laboratory patients new, loving homes. If you have a minute (and waterproof mascara) you should check out some of their rescues.
Thank you for allowing me my rant!
