Paul McCartney is teaming up with The Humane Society to end the horrific use of animal testing in cosmetics.
Every year, small animals like rabbits, mice, and monkeys go through excruciatingly painful tests, leaving them with swollen eyes, inflamed skin and other conditions.
The former Beatle wants to end their suffering and he urges supported to sign the Humane Society International's Be Cruelty-Free pledge.
McCartney says the following on the horrors of animal testing:
The ugly truth about testing beauty products on animals is that it causes them unimaginable pain and suffering. If every cosmetic tested on rabbits or mice had a photo on the packaging showing these animals with weeping swollen eyes and inflamed skin, I believe everyone would leave cruelty on the shelf and go for the cruelty-free option instead.
So, let’s stand up for those defenceless animals by supporting the Humane Society International’s new Be Cruelty-Free global campaign to end animal testing of cosmetics worldwide.
Go online, sign the Be Cruelty-Free pledge today and help HSI achieve a world where no animal has to suffer and die for the sake of cosmetics.
In some parts of the world, such as China and some South American countries, animal testing is REQUIRED by law for cosmetics, while Europe has banned the practice.
This has to end NOW! Help The Humane Society end animal testing!
