BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

Paul Mitchell Shows ♥ for Bunnies in China!

Posted July 27, 2012 by peta2 staff

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.

 

Because Paul Mitchell decided that protecting animals is more important than growing its profits, PETA is presenting the company with a well-deserved Courage in Commerce Award.

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.

      Hey @Kaitlin,

      Donkey basketball is a very cruel ‘game’ held by some schools as fundraisers. Participants ride on donkeys’ backs while playing basketball. Donkeys are dragged, kicked, and punched by participants who have no experience with handling animals. :(

      You can read more about donkey basketball at: http://www.peta2.com/issue/donkey-basketball-is-for-asses/

    The links for the printouts and the stencils don’t work. I’d really like to have them for back to school if somebody could help!

      Hey Alexis,
      You might have noticed our comments are a little wonky right now, posting in the wrong stories occasionally. Which stencils are you looking for? If you tell me the name of the blog we’ll fix those for you ASAP. Sorry for the trouble and thanks for being a voice for animals :)
      Cheers,
      diANA m

    I have been a vegetarian for over 4 years. In 6th grade, we were to dissect a baby pig. The first day I got really dizzy. I was still forced to do this project, but ever since then I’ve been a committed vegetarian(: Lately, I’ve been thinking about going a little bit vegan. Maybe eat vegan friendly foods 3 times a week and see how it goes? 😀

    ☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ My name is Jason. Top 10 quirks: 1. I’m vegetarian. 2. I’m Sagittarius 3. Artist 4. I love The Beatles 5. Love dogs! 6. Spring is my favourite season. 7. I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol). But my favourite actors are Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman. · My favourite foods/restaurants are mangos, 99 Restaurant, Dominoes pizza, pickles, & Pinkberry/Froyo World. My favourite movies and TV shows are Juno, Aquamarine, The Office, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Investigation Discovery, Bojack Horseman, Detention, Crank Yankers, How To Catch a Predator, Mary and Max, Bates Motel, Bob’s Burgers, Salem, Dateline, The Killing, & Darknet. As for Horror films the scariest I’ve seen are: Vile, Quarantine, Would You Rather & Truth or Die My favourite books are The Catcher In The Rye, Penpal, It’s Kind Of a Funny Story, & Life As we Knew it. · My favourite quotes are "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
