Be Cruelty Free Campaign

Be Cruelty Free

It’s Be Cruelty Free Week time again, the global awareness-raising week from Humane Society International and the Humane Society of the United States, all in aid of ending animal testing for cosmetics!

Be Cruelty Free

I’m a huge fan of the Be Cruelty Free campaign because it really does seem to be making the world a better place for bunnies and rodents suffering in cosmetic testing. Already cosmetics animal testing has been banned across Europe, Israel and India, with the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo joining in too with its own ban in January this year. Be Cruelty Free also persuaded China to review its cosmetics testing regulations for the first time in more than twenty years, with some mandatory animal tests being phased out from June. Cosmetics animal testing bans are also under consideration in New Zealand and South Korea thanks to HSI and its global campaigners.

With all this change starting to happen around the world, often it feels like here in the United States we’re lagging behind. And then something amazing happened just last week – we got news from the Be Cruelty Free campaign that the Humane Cosmetics Act has just been introduced by U.S. Representative Jim Moran. This is a huge milestone for the Be Cruelty Free USA campaign which has been lobbying hard on behalf of animals, and we’re so excited that at long last the United States could be about to embark on a journey towards ending cosmetics cruelty.

The HSUS is asking folks to call up their U.S representatives and ask them to support the Humane Cosmetics Act – take action here.

  1. This is a great summary of the Be Cruelty Free campaign. You have a really nice website and I love reading your reviews!

  2. That is a great infographic that the Humane Society did! Thanks for all the info, Moxie!

  3. I have called my Rep.Moxie and I wish others would too. That’s the only way this is going to be banned–wish people would stop with their own petitions since that’s not going to do any good!!

    • Well, I understand what you’re saying. I just hope that in addition to individual petitions, people realize that they absolutely must write/call their Reps so they are aware of what their wishes are!

  4. Thank you so much for writing post like this to keep us up to date.

  5. Thanks for letting us know about these things.

  6. I enjoy reading all of your cruelty free articles.
    Just wanted to write a little comment to support you.
