No animal should have to suffer and die for the sake of lipstick or shampoo. And yet, they do. Laws have made testing products on animals nearly impossible in Australia ... but there’s nothing to prevent international companies that do test on animals from selling their products here (Colgate ... Garnier ... Gillette ... Estee Lauder – just to name a few!) If you want these cruel products off Australian shelves – then the Australian Labor Party want to hear from you. They are proposing to ban the importation, manufacture, sale and advertising of cosmetics or ingredients tested on animals (wow!), and right now they’re calling on the public to have their say. And doing so couldn’t be easier – head to www.AnimalsAus.org/Q1m to support this compassionate plan for animals and to find out more about upcoming public forums around Australia! — with Marguerite Morgan and Luigi Luigi Forero.
