Poison & Gamble

These days, any manufacturer that wants you to buy its products will fall over themselves to tell you just how animal-friendly those products are. The desire to maximize profits though is sometimes given precedence to those animal-friendly promises.

One company in particular stands out from the rest. Thousands of animals die in Procter & Gamble laboratories every year. However, some dogs, cats and rabbits are more lucky, perhaps. Being part of long term studies, they're not killed straight away. Instead, they are slowly poisoned over a long period of time.

The charity PETA now knows of over 550 companies who insist on non-animal testing techniques for their products. However, despite ten years of promises by Procter & Gamble to abolish animal tests in their labs, the company continues to expose the eyes and skin of live animals to its products. It should be noted that many of these tests are not even required by law.

  • Write a letter to the Chief Executive of Procter & Gamble politely asking him to at the very least halt all animal testing that is not required by law. Details can be found at:
