All creatures, big and small, deserve to see the sun, feel the earth, know affection. At the very least, they deserve to live free from pain, abuse and cruelty. Yet every year, roughly 115 million animals will never see sunlight, or leave a laboratory. These animals, which range from rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, and other animals, are poked and prodded through various gruesome, unnecessary tests to facilitate bringing to market consumer products. The kinds of products we use every day, like cosmetics and cleaning solutions.
We believe that consumer education is the key to stop animal testing, and we exist for that reason: to arm you with the information you need to create change through choice. Hence our namesake, Choose Cruelty Free.
THE LATEST ACTIONS
Making A Difference
Choose Cruelty Free makes an impact – and together, we can do more. There are many ways you can get involved. Have your say by campaigning with your local MP – all it takes is a phone call. You can sign our petition, shop our site, become a member or donate to our cause.
Your support has a serious impact, with all proceeds funding our campaign work and the production of cruelty-free resources for Australian consumers.
Your voice is one of the many thousands of caring consumers who want to create change through choice.
According to Humane Society International, 500,000 animals suffer and die worldwide for cosmetics each year. Many more animals are subject to a lifetime without sunlight, care and proper nourishment. A life that sees them cowering in cage corners, but for what benefit?
This is a harsh reality, that can’t be softened.
Our philosophy is to educate through knowledge. The resources shared here are for you to learn more about the issues, the animals, the tests, and the alternatives. The only room for gloss here, is on our cruelty-free makeup lists. So, we’ll tell it how it is when it comes to experiments conducted on these innocent, sentient animals – but we’ll warn you in advance of any content that may be particularly graphic.
