PETA Launches 'Working for Regulatory Change' List to Promote Corporate Activism
York -- For the first time in nearly 30 years, PETA is changing its popular
"do test" and "don't test" lists that hundreds of thousands
of consumers consult before buying cosmetics, household, and personal-care
products. Until now, the group has listed only two kinds of companies—those
that have banned all tests on animals and those that continue to perform skin,
eye, and other painful poisoning tests under a veil of secrecy. Now, PETA has
created a third category, called "Working for Regulatory Change," to
recognize companies that conduct tests on animals only if they're required by
government agencies, that are actively working for the replacement of animals
in these tests, and that annually disclose to PETA what tests have been done
York–based Colgate-Palmolive Company is the first company to meet PETA's
stringent requirements and will head the "Working for Regulatory
has been actively working for the acceptance of non-animal tests for some years
now and is open with both PETA and the public about what tests it is required
to conduct, which helps PETA push for non-animal tests on the national and
international regulatory levels," says PETA Vice President of Laboratory
Investigations Kathy Guillermo. "By recognizing Colgate-Palmolive's
efforts, we hope to encourage other companies to push for an end to all toxicity
tests on animals."
"We are pleased with this recognition from PETA," says Daniel Bagley, Colgate-Palmolive's vice president for global product safety. "For 20 years Colgate-Palmolive has encouraged the
development of alternatives that are scientifically valid and can be accepted
by safety regulators." Colgate has had a moratorium on all
tests on animals for its adult personal-care
product line for more than a decade. In its last reporting year, Colgate
conducted no tests on animals at all.
PETA continues to work toward a complete
ban on all testing on animals and lauds the more than 1,000 cosmetics and
household-product companies that have entirely banned animal testing.

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.
