Urge Avon to Stop Paying for Cruel Tests on Animals in China
Avon used to be a stalwart on PETA's list of companies that never test on animals. But in 2012, PETA exposed that some formerly cruelty-free cosmetics manufacturers, including Avon, had quietly changed their policies and were paying for tests on animals in order to sell their products in China.
PETA is working with scientists to end product tests on animals in China and has persuaded many companies to pull out of or refuse even to enter the Chinese market while animals are still dying.
But we need your help now! Please take a moment to let Avon know that you're disappointed in its backsliding and that you won't buy its products as long as they're tested on animals.
Dear [decision makers],
I was distressed to learn that Avon is paying to have its products tested on animals so that they can be sold in China. Your company has violated the trust of loyal customers, and you have disrespected consumers like me who have counted on your brand for decades because of your cruelty-free policies.
I will no longer be purchasing your products, and I will be sharing this disturbing information with everyone I know.
