This week's Be the Change for Animals cause is the Leaping Bunny Program, administered by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). Established in 1996, Leaping Bunny serves both consumers and companies by certifying cosmetics, personal care, and household products as cruelty-free.
Leaping Bunny operates a strict standard backed up by audits to ensure its companies are not testing on animals in any stage of product development. In addition, it offers the Compassionate Shopping Guide with the most up-to-date list of cosmetic, personal care, and household product companies that are not engaged in animal testing.
Here's how you can help:
- Take the leap! Make a commitment to eliminate animal testing by pledging to only purchase products certified as cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.
- Request a free Shopping Guide and support only those companies committed against animal testing.
- Spread the word - like Leaping Bunny of Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and post videos or ad banners on your blog or website.
