Go Cruelty-Free!

New England Anti-Vivisection Society

Make a commitment this Valentine’s Day to help eliminate animal testing by pledging to purchase only products approved by the Leaping Bunny Program – your best assurance that no new animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or suppliers.

The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program administers the highest cruelty-free standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo for companies producing cosmetic, personal care, and household products that meet its standards. NEAVS is proud to be a founding member of this important coalition.

1. Take the Pledge,
then ask all your special someones to do the same! To encourage more companies to sign on to the Leaping Bunny Program, we have launched a nation-wide pledge campaign to urge consumers to take the leap to cruelty-free products. By signing, you make our collective voice strong and drive more companies to go cruelty-free, saving animals from cruel and unnecessary testing. Help us reach 25,000 signatures today!

2. Shop our partners, get sweet savings! All of the companies certified through the Leaping Bunny Program are doing their part to help eliminate the cruel and unnecessary use of animals in product testing, with some going the extra mile and donating part of each sale to the Leaping Bunny Program. You can help just by shopping from these great cruelty-free companies!

3. Carry our free pocket-size shopping guide – or get it as a free App for your iPhone or iTouch.

The guide will help you identify companies currently with the Leaping Bunny logo and make your cruelty-free shopping fast and easy. The first 50 supporters to request 25 or more shopping guides through will get a free sampling of Endangered Species vegan chocolates to make Valentine's Day even sweeter!

4. Become a fan of the Leaping Bunny on Facebook.

Visit the Leaping Bunny's MySpace page, too!

This is just the thing we are trying to raise awareness of. So many animals (not just bunnys) are bred (in mills) and sold just for medical/industrial testing, and in todays day and age it’s really not necessary. Keep up the fight!
