Animal-friendly Products

Becoming a conscious consumer means we have to go beyond changing what we eat and wear. It means we have to start looking into the other products we regularly purchase because without even knowing it, we could be supporting tests and experiments on monkeys, bunnies, dogs, cats, mice, rats, and even fish! Everything from what we wash our clothes with to skincare, toothpaste, deodorant, and even condoms are tested on these sentient beings. This can be overwhelming to think about, so we’ve put together a super condensed list of the essentials to get you started, where to buy them from, and some tips to help you along the way.

Other Tips

Download the Choose Cruelty-Free app – find out whether a brand tests or is vegan while on the go.

Follow PETA for up-to-date lists on cruelty-free companies.

Check the label for the “cruelty free” and “not tested on animals” label, but remember that this does not always mean the products are vegan.
