Animal Testing Giant Proctor and Gamble Profit Tops Estimate: And, Now Owns Gillette. What to do Now?

Two reasons for posting this:

1. Of course, bad news for those concerned with decreasing animal testing. As you all may know, Proctor and Gamble is one of the kings of supporting brutal animal testing. It is obvious now that their profits haven't been hurt at all with consumer-oriented campaigns. So this should cause us all to re think strategy on how to work to get them to stop animal testing.

Here's one site on Proctor and Gamble and animal testing: http://www.pandgkills.com/main.html

And, here's one on the dog and cat food company Iams which is owned by Proctor and Gamble, and its use of animal testing. Yep, believe it or not, Iams carries out animal testing. See for yourself: http://www.iamscruelty.com/

2. A reminder that Proctor and Gamble now own Gillette. Many believe that Gillette was in no way connected to animal testing in prior years. Well, that was false anyway, but now, with their new parent owner being Proctor and Gamble, they most certainly ARE connected to animal testing.

So, of course, don't buy Proctor and Gamble OR Gillette products. And tell others to not buy them as well. This includes Iams dog and cat food.

Here is a link to lists of companies that do and do not test on animals. Take it with you when shopping: http://www.caringconsumer.com/searchcompany.asp

But, to the activists out there, what are the other ways to tackle this issue when profits seem to continue to rise? A question we all will battle.
