Paul McCartney is a huge animal lover and big supporter of animal rights.
So of course he was so happy when the European Union (EU) enacted a law that banned all animal testing.
Cruelty Free International (Buav) is an organization that really spearheaded the ban in Europe, and now they've joined forces with Sir Paul to bring that ban to the rest of the world.
"I have supported Cruelty Free International's founding organization, the Buav over the years with its campaign to end cosmetics testing on animals. I am so proud to be part of this historic event and congratulate Cruelty Free International for succeeding in taking the cruelty out of beauty across the European Union. Together we have made a huge difference, yet animals continue to suffer because over 80% of the world still allows cosmetics testing on animals. I am now supporting Cruelty Free International with its campaign to seek a global ban to ensure that animals do not suffer for the sake of beauty anywhere in the world."
80%?! That's crazy!
There are so many simulated and computer generated ways to test products that don't involve actual animals, it's shocking animal testing is still around at all!
So let's hope the world listens to Sir Paul and stops the testing!!
