A few years ago, I was offered the name of a company during a conversation:
“Proctor & Gamble”.
Do your homework and you’ll realise that this corporation have made a fool out of anyone who owns a pet, claims to love animals or has tried a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle in ignorance.
Why? Answer: This company blatantly tests on animals!
Excerpt from the uncaged boycott website:
“Traditionally known for their soaps & detergents, P&G now produce a massive range of products tested on animals. E.g Pantene Pro-V, Herbal Essences, Head & Shoulders, Ariel, Daz, Fairy, Max Factor, Olay, Iams, Eukaneuba etc.”
You’d be surprised how many of your regular daily products are made by P&G: Hair care, cosmetics, perfumes, personal hygiene, laundry care, snack food, paper and feminine hygiene, and even pet food. “
And yes, we’ll agree that not everyone can afford alternative products!.. or can they? An entire separate post in it’s own right.
The point to make here is simple:
There are many folks out there supporting these products in ignorance and those who know and apathetically continue to vote and buy unethical products even when they can afford to make a switch.
Until we flesh out this post, check out all the Proctor and Gamble brands which support animal testing for items as trivial as detergents and toiletries.
The start of any change is awareness, and dialogue (without lecturing, eek!). Start talking to friends & family about this if it’s important to you!
Warning: Be prepared to watch good people you know, do nothing despite receiving the above knowledge. Humans are creatures of habit.
