China's State Food and Drug Administration has recently released a draft proposal approving the use of animal testing alternatives.
Having spent twelve months on research of alternative testing, Beijing Technology & Business University's Professor Zhao Hua acknowledges that animal welfare and protection is becoming more and more popular with the development of the economy.
So logistically speaking, it only makes sense to move past dated methods of testing.
Another diligent researcher behind the movement is Anthony James. CU Hong Kong's head of Laboratory Animal Services states:
"Cosmetics are by and large not a medical product saving lives. It’s not a need, it’s a want. There has to be a higher bar set for animal testing for cosmetics and it shouldn’t be permissible at all where there are alternatives."
Words can't express how encouraging it is to see the world of beauty take a more progressive route all over the world!

The Humane Society has recently put their money where their mouth is (well, more like where YOUR mouth is) and invested in fast food chains.
They literally invested $4,000 in Apollo Global Management, who owns Carl Jr's and Hardee's.
They mean to try and change how animals are treated at the plants they contract with from the top down.
The whole reason for the investment is to be able to speak at stock holder meetings and offer solutions for increasing animal welfare, even though they only own 0.00016% of the company.
