UK Cleaning Up Their Act on Animal Testing!

UK Cleaning Up Their Act on Animal Testing!

How good is the UK? The Brits are set to ban the testing of animals for household products like air freshener, furniture polish, bleach and washing up liquid!

This is sure to make a lot of little cats and mice squeak with delight!

Many people don't realise that most of the products on supermarket shelves have been tested on animals before being approved for sale. Even here in Australia!

All sorts of animals from rats and mice to dogs and cats can be used in these painfully cruel tests, that include having harsh chemicals dripped into their eyes, rubbed on their sensitive skin and even being force fed. The horrific results are often blindness, chemical burns and of course, death.

I know I don't want any animals going through that just so I can finish my household chores!

So it's great that the UK is doing something about it! Surely Australia could do the same? After all there are so many companies that don't test any of their products on animals (and quite frankly, I think these products work better!), it's completely unnecessary.

Lush and Perfect Potion have the most amazing skin care ranges, that are to die for (and the animals don't have to)! And for household cleaners you can't go past Earth Choice products that smell so fresh you'll think you're living inside an apple!

Well done to the Brits for again speaking up for animals!
You can help stop companies like L'Oreal and Colgate/Palmolive from having animals abused in their testing labs too. If they can't sell it, they won't test it -- so ask the Australian Government to ban the sale of any product that's been tested on animals by clicking here.

And be sure to pledge to never buy products that are tested on innocent animals too!

I'm off to do the washing up now. I bet you can guess which dishwashing liquid I'll be using! ;)

No cosmetics or products here, so unnecessary happy
And we don't use any horrible chemicals- bi carb soda and apple cider/normal vinegar go a really long way! Wayyy cheaper too happy

You really got to question the sanity of a person that can wilfully carry out these so called tests. Good to see a step in the right direction, hopefully others will follow suit.
