Hey guys so this campaign really hits home for me, I'm a huge animal lover as I'm sure most of you are. Please support this campaign in order to stop the immense amount of torture these poor animals go through on a daily basis all in the name of beauty.
The Body Shop and Cruelty Free International are launching a global campaign called Forever Against Animal Testing which aims to ban animal testing worldwide!!
A little history behind The Body Shops fight against animal testing
"The Body Shop started campaigning to end animal testing in cosmetics, the first global cosmetics company to do so"
"Following our sustained campaign, the UK government banned animal testing of cosmetic products and ingredients."
"Campaigning by The Body Shop and BUAV (British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection, now Cruelty Free International) contributed to a European Union ban on animal testing in cosmetic products."
"The European Union implements its ban on animal testing in cosmetic ingredients."
"We celebrate history. The sale and import of animal tested products and ingredients is banned, completing the EU ban. Our campaign with Cruelty Free International collects 1 million signatures, influencing significant progress across the world as South Korea, New Zealand and India now have a variety of bans in place. Australia is set to follow with a ban promised by July 2017 as is Taiwan in 2019. Cruelty Free International have trained scientists in Vietnam and are now discussing with Thailand and other governments the possibility of a ban across ASEAN."
Here are the countries where animal testing is banned today.
This really is an indication on how we should all take a stand to stop animal testing.
"Animal testing remains a problem around the world, with over 80% of countries who still have no law against testing in cosmetic products & ingredients. Despite the fact that reliable alternatives are available"
"Cruelty Free International estimates that more than 500,000 animals are used worldwide in cosmetic testing each year"
