Our Opinion

Procter & Gamble has received criticism from animal advocacy group PETA for the practice of testing on animals and thus in the list of Cruelty Free Investing for exploiting animals.

On PETA’s Cruelty Free Shopping Guide, you won’t find P&G, even though Procter & Gamble announced, on June 30, 1999, that it had revised its animal-testing policy. According to PETA, the reason it is left off the list is because “Procter & Gamble has not permanently halted all non-required animal experiments. According to P&G, it will not perform experiments on many existing products. P&G has not committed to discontinuing the testing of new ingredients or new products on animals.”

In addition, In Defense of Animals still runs a campaign boycotting P&G for animal testing, and the Ethical Consumer lists boycotts and undercover investigations by PETA, Uncaged, and BUAV.
