A list of common products that still employ animal testing.

“Still buying products tested on animals? Look at these poor bunnies about to be tested on.” ~ Good Human

There’s how we think of Bunnies…Easter! So cute! Then there’s how we treat them, whether we think about it or (more likely) not.

This post is inspired by the Good Human’s tweet featuring the photo, below.

It’s important to look at the tortuous reality our purchases create.

We think bunnies are cute. We put them all over Easter cards. Children read about them in books. And, yah, they are cute.

Updated list: Here’s PETA’s list of companies that don’t test on animals: http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/companiesdonttest.pdf

Thanks to China, these cosmetic companies are testing on animals again. 

But they aren’t bunnies, anymore, these days. They’re lab specimens.

The 13th rabbit photo isn’t so lucky:

Update: here’s a constantly updated searchable list, via PETA.

Here’s a list of common products that still employ animal testing. For an updated list (the list changes all the time, of course) click here.

This list is constantly changing—hopefully because companies are becoming more compassionate!

Please also note that all over-the-counter medicines and/or their ingredients are extensively tested on animals, as currently required by the FDA.”
