Hare Care Products
Crest, Pampers, Luvs, Old Spice, Sunny Delight, Bounce, Secret, Sure, Oil of Olay, Vidal Sassoon, Cover Girl, Tide, Era, Bold, Dawn, Joy, NyQuil, Vicks, Pepto-Bismol, Noxema, Cascade, Cheer, Jif, Crisco, Folgers, Duncan Hines, Cheer, Bounty, Pringles, Bain de Soleil, Clearasil, Ivory (and the list doesn’t stop there); Procter & Gamble

Procter & Gamble continues to perform safety tests for its consumer and cosmetic products on rabbits and other laboratory animals when these tests are not required by law and when alternative, non-animal tests exist, charges In Defense of Animals (IDA), which in 1989 called for a boycott of all P&G products. The boycott, underway in countries on six continents, is supported by PETA, the National Anti-Vivisection Society and other animal rights groups.

It’s a Rat’s Life
Colgate, Palmolive, Ajax, Fab, Speed Stick, Mennen, SoftSoap; Colgate-Palmolive Co.

Alas, Colgate is no safer than Crest for the laboratory animal — or the animal-loving consumer — because Colgate-Palmolive Co. also tests its products on live beasties. For that reason PETA and other animal rights groups are boycotting the company — along with scores of others. Alternatives to the toothpaste titans? Everyone we spoke to mentioned one: Tom’s of Maine.

Tea Troubles
It’s a scorcher. You’re parched. Do you reach for a dubiously endorsed Snapple straight from the cooler, or the exotically packaged Arizona Iced Tea?

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
