Celebrating the ban on cosmetic testing on animals.

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Heeley MP Meg Munn joined parliamentary colleagues to celebrate the banning of cosmetic testing on animals within the European Union. The campaign to achieve this has been running for nearly two decades, led by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV), who arranged the get-together for MPs.

 

Meg said:

 

“I am delighted with this new law. It will protect thousands of animals from suffering and lead to more innovative and less harmful ways of testing products. I am also pleased that leading companies such as the Co-operative have signed up to the Humane Cosmetics Standard.”

 

Michelle Thew, Chief Executive of the BUAV added:

 

“This is an historic occasion and a significant step forward for animals. The BUAV has campaigned for nearly two decades to achieve this important ban across the European Union and we are delighted that it has finally come into force. We will now continue our global campaign to seek an end to the appalling suffering inflicted on animals in the name of beauty worldwide.”
