So I model a bit and i recently has a gig with L'Oreal.

Two things, I feel a bit uncomfortable promoting a company that I KNOW tests on animals and isn't vegan (I'm vegan.)

I don't quite know what to do with all the free products they give me. I've managed to get all my bath products and cosmetics vegan and cruelty-free and now there's this...

have you already done the gig or can you just not accept the job?

Maybe you could just give all the products to the salvos or something?

give the stuff away to your friends? if they get it for free off you they won't be handing their money over to L'oreal

or sell it all on ebay and spend the money on vegan goodies

Personally I'm not sure I'd accept the work in the first place.. but after the fact I'd probably give the products to the salvos or something like that. That way the money paid for them will be going to a good place.

Its hard, especially when its in your line of work, Im a teacher and hate that the science teachers still use pigs hearts in experiment and the kids raise sheep and goats just so they can be slaughtered at the royal show.  I give away any freebies but let people know why I wont use it so it gets them thinking.

When you have regular modeling work you can probably be a bit picky about what you accept nd what you do.
