Our Boycott Procter & Gamble event

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!

Did you guys think up the slogans?? They’re so incredibly awesome and clever…even if Joanne did get the Ivory percentage wrong, haha.

Yeah – Joanne came up with all of them. We noticed the percentage during the event. It’s so hard to remember all those old commercials!

[…] and–though they didn’t realize it was us–they’d already decided to stop buying Procter & Gamble products after seeing our demonstration on Robson a few weeks […]

These guys need to find out just why their products will begin to show diminishing sales. you can’t stay out of advertising markets where people who can afford to buy your product congregate. these guys will soon learn. I for one will pass this cause to over 10,000 people with the click of a mouse

thanks for not supporting this company or any of its products…

oh yes, and testing of animals and causing them pain are just a cost of doing business to them…they could care less about them. Thanks for making me consider this also. i used to not give a damn…!
