Target: Mojo Mathers, Green Party animal welfare spokesperson
Goal: Support the Green Party initiative to end animal testing in New Zealand
In the wake of the European Union’s Cosmetics Directive, the Green Party of New Zealand is urging the country to take notice and make the same promise to its citizens. If New Zealand follows through, it would mean a cosmetic testing ban on nearly every continent, a remarkable achievement for animal welfare.
The sudden increase in pressure to end cosmetic testing is also largely a response to New Zealand’s recent proposal to continue testing party pills and recreational drugs on dogs, which resulted in a great deal of public outcry. Mojo Mathers, spokesperson for the Green Party’s animal welfare group, made a statement saying, “New Zealanders, like Europeans, want to see the end of animal testing for recreational and cosmetic products, that’s why the public were so alarmed with proposals to test party pills on dogs.”
For many years now, New Zealand has been leading research on party pills and recreational drugs. If the nation’s leaders are able to change the way they regulate the industry, it could be a significant global influence. The Green Party hopes that New Zealand can lead other countries away from animal testing in the future by revealing new alternatives.
Please take a moment to sign the petition below and not only thank the Green Party for its efforts, but also to show support for what could be a pivotal change in the global animal testing industry.
Dear Ms. Mojo Mathers,
The Green Party has recently been leading the charge to end the use of animals for testing cosmetics and recreational drugs. If successful, you would not only be responsible for extending an animal testing ban to nearly every continent, but also show the world that party pills and makeup can be regulated without the use of animals.
Thank you for your contribution to animal welfare. Please continue to push these initiatives so that we may soon see a global cosmetics industry free of animal testing.
