Layla Kayleigh wants you to stop and think before making your next purchase at the cosmetics counter. The sexy cohost of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew feels so strongly about stopping product tests on animals that she posed for PETA's first-ever "Animal Testing Breaks Hearts" ad!
Every year, countless mice, rats, rabbits, and other animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed in cruel and outdated product tests that are not required by law and often produce inaccurate results. These animals suffer and die alone, without ever experiencing an ounce of kindness, so chemicals in products like shampoo, makeup, deodorant, toothpaste, and household cleaners can be tested. Animal testing breaks hearts!
The good news is that more than 950 companies have banned animal tests forever! There is no reason that anyone should be buying products that blinded bunnies or poisoned mice when there are plenty of cruelty-free options out there. All you have to do is read those labels!
Says Layla, "I don't think people are purposely buying cosmetics and household products that are tested on animals. I just don't think they think twice. … It really takes such a small thing to make such big impact, you know, and I feel like the more people get involved, the more it can make a difference." Check out what else Layla had to say in her PETA interview below.
Don't be a heartbreaker! Take a cue from Layla and always shop cruelty-free. Help spread the word that animal testing is wrong by e-mailing Layla's video to your friends or by adding it to your MySpace, YouTube, or Facebook page or wherever you are online using the code below.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
