Hurray! Showing some major love for bunnies and other animals tortured in product tests, hair-care giant John Paul Mitchell Systems has decided to stop selling in China rather than having any of its products tested on animals. Paul Mitchell, whose products have always been cruelty-free, had not yet been required to test its products on animals and is the first cruelty-free company to pull out of the Chinese market in order to prevent such cruel tests from occurring.
PETA is funding scientists who are working with Chinese officials to accept non-animal tests—the first of which should be approved soon. Remember always to check peta2′s list of cruelty-free companies to make sure that your money isn’t going toward animal tests—no matter where in the world they are being conducted.

I'm 15 years old. I love to juggle, bowl, do stage crew, play the piano, and run. I also love to help people out, and give back to the community as much as I can. I am part of a juggling organization that teaches children with disabilities, cancers, and those who are blind how to juggle. I volunteer at an animal shelter in Princeton. I am currently a sophomore in high school right now. Extracurricular activities that I do are: Winter/Spring Track, Stage Crew, and Cross Country. I have a pet dog, his name is Dash, and he is a long-haired Dachshund.
