Target: Sarah Jessica Parker
Goal: Convince actress to donate her earnings from endorsing Garnier Fructis, a brand tested on animals, to animal rights.
Sarah Jessica Parker made $3.2 million per episode as the star of Sex and the City. Apparently that wasn’t enough for her because she also endorsed Garnier Nutrisse hair products, which are tested on animals. Sarah Jessica Parker shouldn’t have used her wide-reaching influence to endorse products that are tested on animals, but it’s not too late to make things right. Ask Sarah Jessica Parker to donate her Garnier Nutrisse endorsement earnings to animal rights charities.
Garnier Nutrisse is owned by L’Oreal, a company that tests on animals. Although L’Oreal has donated sizable sums of money to help stop the need for animal testing, it’s still continuing the practice. L’Oreal is misusing its billion dollar profits to pay high salaries and also to pay celebrities to endorse its “cruelty-full” products.
Animal testing is an outdated and unnecessary form of cruelty. Technological advances have made it possible for scientists to test products on virtual and artificial human “skin” and “eyes” that imitate the body’s properties. This means that it is no longer necessary to drop chemicals in animals’ eyes and pump chemicals into their stomachs to make sure products are safe.
It’s time for celebrities to stop endorsing products without having any care or concern for the social or environmental consequences. They have the power to influence and educate the public on important issues and instead they opt to make money no matter what the cost to the planet. Tell Sarah Jessica Parker to take responsibility for encouraging people to buy products tested on animals and donate her earnings for endorsing Garnier Nutrisse to animal rights groups.
Dear Sarah Jessica Parker,
As the beloved star of “Sex and the City,” you have wide-reaching influence that you could use for good. Instead, you have allowed yourself to be the face for a product made by a company that tests on animals. In order to test L’Oreal’s products, scientists put chemicals in animals’ eyes and pump potential toxins in their stomachs, and sometimes kill them.
Animal testing is no longer necessary thanks to technological advances. There is no reason why a company that can afford to pay you to endorse its products can’t afford to use cruelty-free testing practices. We urge you to take responsibility for endorsing a product by a company that tests on animals and donate your endorsement earnings to animal rights groups.
