I'm more of a
coffee person myself, but I do enjoy the occasional glass of iced tea on a warm
day or a hot cup of earl grey when I'm feeling under the weather. Needless to
say, I was shocked when I learned that some companies are testing tea on animals.
Nestlé, the maker
of Nestea, conducts—and pays others to conduct—painful and deadly tea tests on animals. Animals have been poisoned, electrically shocked, surgically mutilated, and decapitated.
Please take a
moment to ask Nestea to
stop testing on animals and join other brands—such as Arizona, Lipton, Luzianne Tea, Snapple, Tazo,
Twinings, and others—that don't experiment on animals.
If, like me,
hurting animals isn't your cup of tea,
make sure you choose a brand that is cruelty-free. A complete list of tea companies that do not conduct animal experiments is
available on PETA's latest campaign website, NesteaCruelTEA.com.
So whether it's
iced tea, hot tea, green tea, or black tea, make sure it's free of cruelty!
