Знаете ли колко е лошо , когато волно или неволно причинявате страдание на невинно същество?Хората сме разумни същества и носим отговорност за постъпките си.

For more than two decades, Avon, Mary Kay, Estee Lauder, and Revlon have been among the largest mainstream international companies on PETA's cruelty-free lists. Avon banned all tests on animals following PETA's massive "Avon Killing" campaign, and Mary Kay pledged to go cruelty-free after cartoonist Berkeley Breathed mocked the company in his popular Bloom County comic strip. Since then, all four companies have enjoyed the support of PETA and millions of consumers who choose to buy cosmetics from companies that don't harm animals. But now we have learned that all four companies have been paying for tests on animals in order to sell their products in China—and they did not inform PETA or consumers that their policies had changed. We have no choice but to downgrade them by placing them on our list of companies that test on animals.
Avon, това малко прекрасно животинче също иска да живее!

When we learned that the Chinese government requires tests on animals before many cosmetics products can be marketed in China, we immediately contacted the companies. While we understand that China is an enormous market that these companies aren't willing to ignore, we had hoped they would take action to eliminate this requirement or push for non-animal testing methods to be accepted. Mary Kay had taken some steps to work with officials in China, and at our urging, promised to continue this effort—but Avon, Estee Lauder, and Revlon appear to have gone along with the painful animal tests without objection.
Since PETA first exposed the Chinese government's requirements for animal tests for cosmetics in 2012, we have provided the expert scientists at the Institute for In Vitro Sciences with funding both to educate scientists in China on superior, non-animal testing methods and to provide government officials there with guidance on accepting non-animal testing methods and developing a five-year plan to accept the tests currently used in the U.S. and Europe.
Fortunately, there are still more than 1,500 companies on our global "Don't Test" list whose products consumers can buy with a clear conscience.

Please take a moment to let Avon, Estee Lauder, Mary Kay and Revlon know that you are disappointed in their backsliding and that you will no longer buy the companies' products as long they are tested on animals.

Please also send a separate message to Avon by contacting its customer service department at dearavon@avon.com and to Mary Kay by contacting its CEO and president, David Holl, at david.holl@marykayinc.com.


I Won't Buy While Animals Die

I was distressed to learn that your company is paying to have your products tested on animals for marketing in China. Your company has violated the trust of loyal customers, and you have disrespected consumers like me who have counted on your brand for decades largely because of your cruelty-free policies.

I will no longer be purchasing your products, and I will be sharing this disturbing information with everyone I know.

p.s.- I wrote and sent my message this morning, write and send yours now if you care for animals !

  2. Благодаря за тази публикация.Аз изпратих писмо до Avon.
    Как е възможно такава жестокост!Никога няма да си купя повече техен продукт!
    Също така ще направя всичко възможно повече хора да разберат, че Avon са компания жестока към животните, точно както е написала PETA.

    1. Прекрасна постъпка, Александра.
      Много се радвам, че съм била полезна.

  3. Много гнусно от страна на Avon, Revlon, Mary Kay , Estee Lauder.
    Толкова се биха в гърдите,че спират тестовете.А какво се оказа?
    Написах своето протестно писмо и го изпратих до адресите,които е дала PETA.

    1. Надявам се, че един ден светът ще бъде по-добър, но това зависи от нас.
      Както казва Коко Шанел "Всичко е в нашите ръце и затова не бива да ги отпускаме!"
