Animal testing. (and I'm sorry!)

Back in September of last year, had you have asked me my opinion on "animal testing" I'll tell you exactly what I would've said.
"It's terrible, it should be banned."

And I'm sure, for the majority of people, that's what they would've said too. But would you ever do anything about it? No, probably not. However, this all changed for me in October. You see, we had modules of Religion, and the topic of one module was "morality". About two days before the final project was due, by chance, I ended up partnered with a friend of mine (through a falling out with another). Seeing as the project had to be done quickly, I suggested animal testing, thinking;
"We'll stick up a picture of a puppy in a cage, and it'll be grand."

This wasn't what happened at all. To say it changed my life does sound like an exaggeration, but it's true. To this day, I have bought nothing (except toothpaste and some shampoos.. I'll explain that later) that has been tested on animals. And I mean, it's not like I went and threw out all my make-up, and bought new. Of course I didn't. Aside from the fact that I'm not loaded, I'm also not a waster, and I love a good bargain. So what I did was, any time I needed anything, I bought from a brand that didn't test.

Here's a list of the companies that do test. Clickyclicky.

And here's a list of companies that don't test.

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts, and for not commenting on many blogs lately, I'm a bit behind, but I mean, it's summer ^^, And also, I will go into more depth about animal testing and all (I'm aware I didn't explain it, it's just that I haven't got a lot of time at the moment, but it will be up in the next few days.. And I also don't like reading long posts so I won't write them), so if you want to leave any questions, go ahead! Maybe I might even do some reviews, who knows? Anyway, I hope you're all having and excellent weekend and I'll talk to you all later.

  1. It's horrible! And grass is 50% like us, as in humans, they should test on that instead!
