I want to start featuring some of my favorite products. What does this have to do with animals? EVERYTHING!
The products I want to share are cruelty-free. There is no need to put animals through the torture they endure for us to use household items. If you’re a believer in God and that he created all, we must ask ourselves what would he think of this practice? If you’re not a believer in God, then consider the torture animals are put through. They live in a lab in a metal cage, experimented on, harmed and then treated, and so much worse. This happens to dogs, cats, and rabbits which most of us have in our family. Take a moment to look at your furry family member. It’s their fellow beings this is happening to. There are better ways: https://www.pcrm.org/ethical-science/animal-testing-and-alternatives.
I am featuring SEVENTH GENERATION in this post. These are one of my favorite product lines (https://www.leapingbunny.org/brand/seventh-generation). I currently use the hand soap, laundry detergent, and dish soap. I like the scent free dish soap because I use it to wash Cino’s food and water dishes every day.
Do you have a favorite cruelty-free product? Please share.
Have you ever seen the movie Legally Blonde or Legally Blonde 2? Reese Witherspoon plays Elle Woods a fashionable sorority queen. In Legally Blonde she winds up going to law school and becoming a lawyer and in Legally Blonde 2 she finds herself fighting against animal experimentation.
I am not sure how well the two movies did in theaters and some may even say they are corny chick flicks which they may very well be. But I find myself being drawn to these types of movies. I think I still have the envy little girls have for “princesses” still in me.
Regardless of how well they did in the box office, I found positive messages in each of these movies. Legally Blonde shows how you really should never judge a book by its cover. Everyone thought Elle was way too pink & ditsy to ever go to law school and actual become a lawyer. But she did!
In Legally Blonde 2, she was laughed at for bringing up her concern for animals suffering in experiments for cosmetics. But she didn’t let that stop her. Please enjoy the following clip from the movie (6:50 minutes). (Ignore the silly “my dog is gay thing”)
Concern is growing in American society for the welfare, protection, and rights of animals. Protests have been mounted against killing animals for their fur, hunting animals for sport, and experimenting on animals in the laboratory. A powerful rational argument can be made for respecting animals much more than we currently do.
Should you put a dog on a chain or not put a dog on a chain?
The word “chain” is in itself so negative. I think its acceptable if you put a dog on an extended leash, maybe one made out of small chains, that will keep them safe from running off if you don’t have a fenced in yard. If you have a fenced in yard, there should be no need. Continue reading →
According to many people there are other ways to go about finding out if products are safe other than testing on innocent animals. I do not want to think that an animal had to suffer for the mascara I wear, or the hairspray I use, or the body wash I use, or the cleaning products for my house. It isn’t worth it! There are MANY products out there that DO NOT test on animals.
