More than enough companies that are ok and not testing on animals....

you can reach me by mail network

The red list of the IUCN is growing very rapidly!
I think that all animals from the red list should be protected!

Why would you put animals on a red list? If you do not protect them?
If animals are endangered protect them its that simple...

We fight for the protection of all endangered species!
Please sign this petition!

All animals on this red list of threatened species should be protected!

Just one example on how the current system fails!

"TheAfrican wild dog, Lycaon pictus, is one of Africa's most endangeredcarnivores. It is Red Listed by the International Union for theConservation of Nature ( IUCN) as an Endangered Species. The reasonsgiven by IUCN for this decline are human induced loss of habitat andpersecution by humans. According to the IUCN report on wild dogs, thereare between 3.000 and 5.500 free ranging wild dogs left in Africatoday. In January 2006 a filmwas broadcast by a Dutch Channel, Twee Vandaag, which exposed theindication that there was a serious trade in wild dogs, including dogswhich came out of the wild! One way in which the trade and capture ofwild dogs could be monitored and controlled would be for them to belisted on CITES, Appedix I or II. ( Convention of International Tradein Endangered Species) . That means that the African wild dog, Lycaonpictus, should be placed on CITES as soon as possible to afford agreater level of protection" The Aflrican Wild Dog will need protectionfrom the local governments in Africa. Since it will take years to getit on the CITES list. The wildlifefoundation wants to act before it istoo late!
The time is now! Protect the last wild dogs in Africa !

Petition to save the wild dogs!

We support the Painted dog conservation project in Zimbabwe!

The Painted Dog Conservation Organisation’s mission is to conserve and increase the range and numbers of the painted dog (Lycaon pictus) both in Zimbabwe and elsewhere in Africa by providing conservation tools and education material that can be used to protect this highly endangered carnivore.

Our belief is that Conservation does not occur on an island and so the objective is to undertake a holistic approach that encompasses all the stakeholders, particularly school children and local communities.

A holistic programme with 5 components

  • Research

  • Direct conservation of the dogs

  • Conservation education

  • Capacity building for the future

  • Community development

  • Painted dogs  or wild dogs?

    "The name 'wild dog' developed during an era of persecution of all predators when the name applied to feral dogs, hyenas, jackals and cape hunting dogs (Pringle, 1980). 'Painted' aside from being a direct translation of the specific epithet, accurately describes the unique varicoloured markings of each individual. Apart from being misleading, continued use of the name 'wild dog' does little more than further fuel negative attitude and prejudice which is detrimental to conservation efforts."

    There is no record in Myth, Legend or Fact of a Painted dog, aka Wild Dog, attacking or killing a human being.

    Of all the natural threats to the survival of the painted dog, man represents the greatest. 

    Hyena, jackal and leopard will steal their food from the killing site while lions will kill both adults and pups however these are natural occurrences to which the animal has survived for millions of years.

    Man is by far their greatest killer and yet with a little care he could be their saviour.


    He condones the wanton killing of adult dogs and puppies by whatever means.


    Road kills are a major killer of these animals. In April 2001, the alpha male of a pack was found on the road leading to a National Park in Zimbabwe by Project staff. The dog was taken to a veterinary clinic but had to be put down due to it having a broken back. Obviously excessive speed was a factor.


    Man perceives the method of killing prey is abhorrent.


    He sets traps, snares, with little thought for the suffering of the animal that gets caught.


    He allows domestic dogs to introduce disease such as rabies and distemper. 


    The loss of one dog to a pack can have a devastating effect on the survival of the whole pack.

    1% for the Planet exists to build and support an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.

    To be perfectly honest, it’s not about us. It’s about businesses recognizing that industry and ecology are inherently connected. It’s about realizing the positive effects of connecting businesses, consumers and nonprofits through philanthropy. And it’s about understanding that the true cost of doing business can be mitigated by a simple pledge to the planet.

    Since 2002, 1% For The Planet has inspired members of the business community to contribute 1% of sales to environmental groups around the world. In return, this growing alliance of companies is given the opportunity not only to see their self-worth rise, but their net worth climb as well.

    Not long ago, a mountain climber and a fisherman realized they had a lot more in common than a disdain for wearing a suit to work.
    Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, were also passionate environmentalists that happened to be running successful businesses. More important, they understood it was good business to protect the natural resources that kept them in business. And the rest is history...

    1% For The Planet
    1% for the PlanetIn the same vein as The Conservation Alliance, 1% For The Planet provides the motivation for any business – large or small – to donate at least 1% of their annual net revenues to environmental organizations worldwide. To date, members include restaurants, musicians, wineries, graphic design and advertising firms, to name just a few.
    Learn more and join 1%

    Why Join?

    When we consider the enormity of the environmental crisis it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless. Obviously, the solution is not as simple as changing an incandescent bulb to a CFL. But 1% For The Planet is enabling businesses to take a lead role in being environmental stewards and to set an example for the rest of the business community. These companies embrace the notion that the sustainability of the natural environment is fundamental to the sustainability of business.

    So, altruism aside, why else should a business become a 1% FTP member? Let’s start with opportunities. Membership creates opportunities for companies to network, conduct business and simply associate themselves with over 700 companies that have made the same noble commitment. From a consumer standpoint, member companies re-enforce a positive perception of their brand, adding value that can result in greater customer loyalty and an increased customer base, especially among the growing number of people who recognize and appreciate the importance of environmental responsibility.

    Member companies also benefit from our own marketing efforts and promotion of the 1% FTP brand. The more our logo becomes ubiquitous, the more effectively it will equate environmental stewardship with our membership. Our web site and other informational materials regularly highlight members, creating a unique opportunity to distinguish your business to your clients and customers, as well as to the general public. Members will also receive regular newsletters and updates on the current happenings at 1% FTP.

    The environmental challenges we face are enormous. The need for businesses to lead the way is even bigger. 1% For The Planet offers a simple, tangible and proactive way for the business community to be a part of the solution.


    ECO responsability

    ispo winter 09 launches first Eco Responsibility Award
    As a first at ispo winter 09, the trade show organizers created the new Eco Responsibility Award! The focus is on the critical subjects of sustainability, ecology, and environmental awareness! The award will honor extraordinary product innovations, which deem sustainability not just a new lifestyle, but fully endorse ecology in all aspects: from production, processing, material use to environmentally friendly transport options and packaging solutions.
    more ...

    In Focus: Sustainability - Did you know...
    ...that the trade fair grounds of the New Munich Trade Fair Centre are based on a pioneering ecology concept, with which we are able to reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 7,000 tons per year? Among other things, this concept includes spacious landscaped areas of 125,000 sq. m. - 20,000 sq. m. of trees, 70,000 sq. m. of bushes and 35,000 sq. m. of green areas on roofs - as well as 10,000 sq. m. of created ecological compensation areas.
    >>more information

    Patagonia has been named Eco Brand of the Year at the Volvo Eco Design forum in Munich during the ISPO tradeshow.

    The prestigious award represents the recognition by the outdoor industry for Patagonia’s efforts and intitatives to lower its impact on the environment.

    Its Environmental Grants Program has contributed over $30m in cash and in-kind donations to grassroots environmental activists since the program began in 1985. Likewise, its Environmental Internship Program allows employees to work for environmental groups while receiving their full paycheck.

    Since 1996, Patagonia has used only organically grown cotton in its clothing line, and recycled materials in many of its polyester fleece garments. 2005 saw the launch of the Common Threads Recycling Program, one of the world’s first garment recycling programs.

    Following on with its good work, Patagonia recently launched the Footprint Chronicles on to tell the story behind the social and environmental impact of its products from design to delivery.

    A solid performance, from a solid brand. If only others would take a leaf out of their recycled book…

    Patagonia truly is one of the most environmental friendly companies in the entire sporting goods industry! But we like how Nike is following the cradle to cradle principle they just give it a different name!

    We see sustainability as a source of innovation... NIKE about considered design!

    A way to inspire new thinking and deliver tangible results!We follow a Considered design ethos across all nike footwear,combining premium design and performance innovation with environmental sustainability!

    By 2011, all Nike footwear will meed or exceed baseline standards set in our sustainability index! By 2015, we'll include all apparel! By 2020 all Nike equipment!

    A perfect sustainable product would be a product that delivers premium design maximum performance and zero waste- at every stage of its lifecycle! A dream today but we believe a real possibility.Learn more
