Tell Windex: Stop Testing on Animals!

Windex is manufactured by SC Johnson. SC Johnson tests Windex on animals in torturous experiments that often result in death. Each year, more than 100 million animals are tortured and executed in animal experimentation. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Animal experimentation is an unethical and inhumane practice where animals such as dogs, rabbits, birds, mice, and monkeys are forced to comply with painful experiments. Some methods that take place during animal testing include:
Pouring corrosive chemicals on their bare skin
Injecting chemicals into their eyes
Repeatedly force fed large substances
Forced inhalation of toxic gases
The lack of enrichment in their tiny cages and the brutal treatment causes these animals to develop neurotic behavior such as continually spinning in circles, rocking back and forth, ripping out their own fur, and biting themselves. After experiencing a life of pain these animals are almost always killed.
Notwithstanding these horrific procedures, SC Johnson still chooses to test on animals even though it is not required by law.
SC Johnson claims to test Windex on animals to ensure that it is safe for humans, but animals are poor test subjects for human health because they are so different from humans, who metabolize and process substances differently. In many cases, a product which has been successfully tested on animals (as measured by no signs of distress) causes permanent harm to humans.
To put another living creature through unwarranted pain and suffering is cruel. Please sign this petition to ask SC Johnson to stop testing Windex on animals! And please refuse to purchase Windex because the company tests on animals!
