Europe decides rabbits are more important than eyeshadow

This is welcome news, long overdue. Let’s hope the US will follow suit and the rest of the world will catch up. I long for the day when ALL animal testing is history.

The European Union is scheduled to ban all animal-tested products next month, but the rest of the world hasn’t followed suit. This is a landmark moment for animal rights’ activists.

It’s common knowledge that much of the cosmetic and personal care industry tests products on animals. Despite advances in technology, animal experiments are still particularly cruel—and surprisingly ineffective in determining a product’s safety. That’s why the European Union recently announced that after years of delays, it’s finally banning the import and sale of all animal-tested products and ingredients, starting March 11.

A Live Frog Is the Best Frog, also for Learning

Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 2.40.30 AM

Children and students are curious by nature and that is good. But it is incomprehensible why they must be taught how to kill an animal to learn something about nature and specifically more about animals. How can we believe that compassion for animals could result from cutting an animal apart?

“April is National Frog Month – an important reminder that millions of these amazing animals are taken from the wild each year to be used for biology lessons. Frogs cannot be successfully bred in captivity and must be taken from their natural habitats. Removed from our wetlands, they suffer in transport and embalming. And, dissecting once-living frogs contributes to our ecological imbalance and further compromises nature’s fragile resources. As a keystone species, dissecting frogs contributes to not only their decline but to that of other wildlife populations as well. It exposes students to toxic chemicals and in turn, contaminates our environment as formaldehyde-ridden body parts need to be disposed when the class is done.”

If you know any students who have to dissect frogs please pass this on. If you know any teachers please pass this on. If you know anyone in the school system please pass this on.
