Lush Stores Want to Wash Away Animal Testing
The noon event coincides with "World Week for Animals in Laboratories," and Lush has partnered with the Humane Society International and Humane Society of the U.S. to take part in a signature-gathering campaign to end cosmetics animal testing or the sale of products made that way.
"Animals across the globe have waited long enough for legislation to end their cosmetics suffering," adds Brandi Halls, Lush's campaigns director. "While testing bans are not yet in place in every country in the world, companies like Lush have adopted voluntary codes of practice to cut animal testing from their business. But animals should not have to rely on voluntary codes of conduct--they should be protected by robust laws which force ALL companies to adopt humane methods to bring their products to market."
More than 700 Lush stores in 48 countries are taking part today. For more on the Be Cruelty Free petition, visit www.fightinganimaltesting.com/na.
