Lobbying pays off!
Naturewatch Foundation is delighted that the government is finally planning to honour its pledge to ban the testing of ingredients used in household products, which was included in the 2010 Coalition agreement. Home Office Minister, Lynne Featherstone, has vowed that a ban will come into force before the general election.
Rabbits, hamsters, rats and mice have been injected, gassed and killed for products such as washing-up liquid, air fresheners and dishwasher tablets. Such unnecessary suffering simply to bring more household products to the shelves is completely unacceptable and should have ended long ago.
