Ever wonder if that product you’re about to buy is cruelty-free? For most people, the answer is probably “no” — but PETA wants you to think twice about seemingly innocent purchases and they’ve got a new iPhone app to help guide the way.

Called “Be Nice To Bunnies“, the app ties into PETA’s own cruelty-free database to provide you with up-to-date information that you need to “stay a caring and informed consumer on everything from toothpaste to dog treats!”

You can download the app for $1.99 from iTunes here. Just one more reason why Dudell’s Blackberry sucks something awful. (I kid, I kid…)

Check out PETA’s Apple-esque ad for “Be Nice To Bunnies” below:

    Wow!! Those are fighting words, d’Estries. But mainly because you spelled my name wrong. DuDell, not Dudell. Sucker!

    This is so practical! I wish I had an iPhone even more so now. There are countless times I’ve been at the store and didn’t know whether or not something was 100% cruelty-free.

  7. Pete says:

    actually looks pretty decent. is it just a listing and the symbols? because if they had a review as to why it’s not a vegan product that would just put it over the top for me. :) first i need to get an iphone hehe

  8. “Companies and products that are vegan (don’t contain animal byproducts) are also noted.”

    This part makes me want it.

  9. VeggieTart says:

    But how accurate is it? PETA has listed things as vegan when they aren’t. I hope there’s a better explanation of in the Apple iTunes App Store because those codes didn’t really help.
