Just a quick note on…

…The Body Shop and Cruelty Free International’s petition against animal testing. Last week, it was the five year anniversary of EU’s animal testing ban for cosmetics and sales of animal tested products. Thank you The Body Shop for reminding us, and for trying to make an actual change. Together with Cruelty Free International, they lobbied for the EU ban and raised awareness around this important issue in a large way. Five years later, they’re still on it.

Yesterday morning, The Body Shop invited us to a lovely breakfast in Stockholm with the purpose of bringing new awareness to animal testing and their animal rights campaign Forever Against Animal Testing (FAAT). The purpose of the campaign is to push through a global ban of animal testing for cosmetics, as 80% of the world’s countries still practice this cruelty. Quite shocking, we know. So far, they have collected over 4,7 million names (ours included), and the goal is set to 8 million, which would make this the largest petition against animal testing in history!

On a lighter note: The Body Shop also took yesterday morning to introduce their new Body Yoghurts to the press, coming into stores this spring. (Wearing the almond one right now, and can tell you that it actually does feel quite fantastic as it absorbs super fast, gives the skin a silky finish and has a lovely scent. Oh, and it’s 100% vegan.)

If you too want to stop animal testing once and for all (’cause it’s really ineffective and totally unnecessary—and—half a million animals get killed yearly because of it) you can sign the petition here: The Body Shop and Cruelty Free International Petition.

Let’s make change together!
