Our Boycott Procter & Gamble event
Category : Uncategorized
We held an event today in honour of International Boycott Procter & Gamble Day. In case you don’t know, Procter & Gamble is a giant company that conducts huge amounts of testing on animals. Much of this testing is on cosmetics, soaps, cleaners, toothpaste, etc. Almost nothing that P&G makes can be considered a necessity.
For more information, check out the In Defense of Animals website.
There are many alternative products that are not tested on animals. Have a look at Peta’s list of companies that don’t test on animals. Also look at AAVS’s list of companies that have signed on to their Leaping Bunny program and don’t conduct animal tests, commission any animal tests, or test ingredients on animals.
We had a fantastic turnout to the event, with 19 volunteers! Joanne did a great job with slogans for the signs. I love the Ivory one. We gave away over 500 leaflets and had a very positive response from passers-by. Plus the weather was nice so it was a really good day!
