Thanks Nancy! Since many of these companies still test on animals, I figured this is a win-win, so I had to add a little bit more to the letter. Get the toxic chemicals ( how about all chemicals) OUT - no reason to enslave animals to do the dirty work - hopefully.

It would seem this industry cannot be investigated enough to eliminate the many dangerous products on the market!

I believe in NO Testing of animals, there are other ways to test a product without the little animals suffering

Great Bill. I boycott everything and look up stuff before i consume anything.
Help animals, support small business and cut out the corporate terrorists, one purchase at a time.

Unrelated but bring reusable shopping bags, and cut out plastic,not only for the litter killing, but i've heard of animal oil added to make some of those bags, disgusting!
Thanks Nancy!

Thank you sweetie. My Represenative is Elton Gallegy (R) and he won't even respond anymore. I would sign, but he'd NEVER IN A BILLION YEARS DO ANYTHING TO HELP OUR ENVIRNOMENT, WOMEN, or ANYTHING CLOSE TO MORAL AND DECENT.
I only use pure organic products be it cosmetics to food.
Thank you Ellen. I will check out the info you offered.
Kenny V, BLESSINGS to you. I boycott almost everything as well. At one time I had a notebook writing why. What a waste of time. Every second of everyday MORE IS REVEALED. Unless I know who grows the food I eat I DON'T EAT IT. Unless I know the FACTS...well back to boycotting everything.

Excellent - would sign but not US citizen so can't. Check everything before you buy - there's a long list of very famous retailers who still practice testing their products on animals circulating on Care 2 - don't buy from these people!

Action taken. This is a big deal to me. I do not want to use toxic cosmetics or body products, but it's hard to know which is. I try to stick to certified organic. However, I have yet to find an organic deodorant that works. I've read that research links use of deodorants/antiperspirants to breast cancer, although the research is inconclusive. Given the huge increase in breast cancer in recent decades, something common has to be causing it. Thanks.
