With the passing of Paul Newman, animals and the people who care about them have lost a dedicated friend and advocate.
Beyond his work as an actor, Newman's companies—Newman's Own and Newman's Own Organics—placed a particular emphasis on minimizing the suffering of animals. PETA's shopping guide at VegCooking.com features a dozen Newman's Own products that don't include animal-derived ingredients. Newman's Own Organics also introduced a line of foods for dogs and cats that benefit animals in more ways than one: The products are not tested on animals, and the profits from the sales are donated to animal protection organizations.
To pay tribute to this extraordinary man, let us carry on his tradition of showing kindness and compassion to all beings every day.
