I just received a feel-good press release detailing a new relationship between Discovery Channel’s Jeff Corwin and Clorox to focus worldwide attention on a deadly fungus that is destroying frogs and other amphibian populations. The project revolves around a new film called The Vanishing Frog — which send Corwin on a “worldwide mission” to uncover clues to the frog’s decline while also revealing the benefits of environmental protection. Here’s a bit from the description,

“’Jeff is so passionate about raising awareness for this crisis and has such a deep knowledge of the issues affecting these fascinating creatures that he is the perfect person to take us on this journey of discovery, ‘ noted Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. ‘We’re thrilled that our partner Clorox has been an ardent advocate for the amphibian crisis and is taking that commitment even further by partnering with us to produce THE VANISHING FROG documentary project.'”

Apparently, Clorox’s regular bleach is registered with the EPA as a fungicide — which is used to sterilize boots, instruments, and clothing used in infected areas. Everyone’s happy, right? Well, while the frogs are getting some help, let’s not forget that Clorox is a company that continues to test their products on animals. This includes, but is not limited to, mice, rats, rabbits, hamsters, and other furry friends. Until this testing is stopped, we strongly urge you to consider alternatives — such as Method or Seventh Generation. While it’s great to see a company supporting any initiative to help another creature, we think Clorox might do greater good to change within. If they get that far, what they do outside the corporation will hold more weight.

In short, the lawyers ineptly argued that pigs are not property, and then went on to argue that they are property.

The only label you need on egg cartons: exploitative

We have to recognize that the ‘free range’ campaign (and the many chicken related campaigns like it) is as frivolous as the ‘humane meat’ one.

It fails as education because whatever useful information it manages to convey, any benefit of this is negated by the confusion it fosters in an arena that is already beset with massive confusion.
