Animal Testing & Cruelty

31 Oct

Having been vegetarian for almost three years now I have been vaguely aware of the fact that the world is full of cruel and disgusting people who feel they have the right to use animals for their own self gain and show no respect to the animals they are killing.

Rabbits strapped in for testing.

Although being vegetarian certainly helps the cause, I have had my eyes opened properly and I realised how much of this sick practice goes on in the world and I am ashamed to have been brought up in such a society. From this point forward I shall make conscious decisions about every product I buy, pushing to get rid of all animal sourced products in my life. As far as this blog is concerned, this also means within the cosmetics industry. I shall be back to talk about this soon, but in the meanwhile, please watch this video, and take note of the list of the evil companies that support hurting animals so they can make money.

More on this at a later date!
