We’d love to see you getting involved and lobbying for changes to animal welfare legislation or contacting companies to voice your concern regarding their policy.
Here is how you can do it...
a. Show you support a ban on animal experiments for household products in Britain and throughout the EU by using your purchasing power - only buy household products from cruelty-free companies that have been thoroughly researched by Naturewatch – don’t forget, we are the only organisation that takes into consideration the policy of the parent company, if there is one.
b. Boycott multinational companies that continue to test on animals outside the EU for cosmetic and toiletry purposes. Although the EU Cosmetics Testing Ban is in force, we now need to send a clear message that we won’t rest until animal testing for cosmetic and toiletry products is relegated to the dustbin of history throughout the world!
2) Please donate, whatever you can afford, to support this vital campaign. We are now at a crucial stage – we must step up the pressure to ensure progress continues to be made to help animals caught up in the nightmare world of animal experiments.
Lobbying industry - As a consumer, you have more power than you think! Most companies do care about how the public perceive them and, not least, where you as potential customers spend your money.
