Today a global pledge to ban animal testing for cosmetics will be launched at over 300 The Body Shop stores in the UK, and will roll out over the coming weeks at The Body Shop stores in 65 countries across the world! It is the largest and most ambitious campaign ever to seek a global ban on the use of animals to test cosmetics. The Body Shop customers in countries including the USA, Australia, South Africa, Hong Kong, India, Thailand, Mexico and Saudi Arabia will have the opportunity to sign a pledge in-store.
Paul McGreevy, International Values and R&D Director of The Body Shop, said “The Body Shop believes passionately that no animal should be harmed due to the demands of governments and regulators around the world. We have a long commitment to this cause, and unfortunately many people believe this issue is resolved and it is not. We are very proud to support Cruelty Free International’s campaign to achieve a worldwide ban on animal testing and encourage everyone to sign their pledge in our stores!”
The Cruelty Free International pledge is currently available in all The Body Shop stores in the UK, and online at www.CrueltyFreeInternational.
