“If you want to test cosmetics, why do it on some poor animal who hasn’t done anything? They should use prisoners who have been convicted of murder or rape instead. So, rather than seeing if perfume irritates a bunny rabbit’s eyes, they should throw it in Charles Manson’s eyes and ask him if it hurts.” ― Ellen DeGeneres*
Yes, it’s still happening. Innocent animals all over this nation are being unnecessarily and brutally tortured. And you – yes, YOU – can make it stop! Please make a conscious effort when shopping and only purchase from companies that do not test on animals. Not sure where to start? Use this amazing guide of cruelty free companies like I do to help with your shopping choices.
*Side-note: While I appreciate the sentiment of the quote, I really don’t appreciate Ellen DeGeneres since she is a spokesperson for Cover Girl… a company that still tests their makeup on animals. I will not respect her as an animal activist until she stops taking money from the very companies she claims to protest. Wise up, Ellen!
