Kristin Bauer Calls Out Seventh Generation For Supporting Animal Testing

Actress and animal activist Kristin Bauer van Straten took to her Twitter account last night to call out Seventh Generation for supporting campaigns that promote animal testing.

The “True Blood” actress tweeted: “I will no longer b buying Seventh Generation due to their support of #animaltesting – sign petition to tell them,” and then linked to PETA’s petition page that asks the public to take action against the environment-friendly brand.

To be clear, Seventh Generation isn’t testing its products on animals, but it does support a number of campaigns that support animal testing, including its own Million Baby Crawl. Now, according to PETA, the company has gone one step further by refusing “to support reforms to the Toxic Substances Control Act that would reduce the number of animals poisoned and killed in experiments.”

For a company that promotes itself as “cruelty-free,” we think it’s awfully hypocritical to continue to support measures that would increase testing on animals.

This isn’t the first time Bauer van Straten has taken to Twitter to promote animal cruelty. The International Fund for Animal Welfare ambassador regularly tweets (and retweets) animal issues, including puppy mills and rhino and elephant protection.

Keep on tweeting the good word, Kristin!

    Kristin Bauer is a great actress and a wonderful animal activist. I’m glad she’s spreading the word that Seventh Generation is not “walking the walk.” I have stopped purchasing their products in favor of those that are truly cruelty-free.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
