Beatles legend and animal lover Sir Paul McCartney has joined PETA’s Save Cruelty-Free Cosmetics European Citizens’ Initiative.
The campaign was started by PETA entities around the world along with Dove, The Body Shop and over 100 animal protection organizations. The campaigns is urging the European Union to uphold and strengthen its ban on animal testing for cosmetics.
“We all thought the battle was over and that cosmetics tests on animals in Europe were a thing of the past, but sadly, that’s not the case,” McCartney said in a statement posted on the PETA website. “The European Chemicals Agency continues to demand the use of thousands of rabbits, rats, fish, and other animals in cosmetics ingredients tests. But you can help put a stop to it.”
“No animal should suffer for beauty, so if you’re an EU citizen, please go to savecrueltyfree.eu and sign the European Citizens’ Initiative to protect the ban,” he added. “Signing the petition takes only a minute – and it will help save lives.”
