Compassionate products are those that do not contain animal products or bring any form of suffering to the creatures in other forms. That means sans animal testing.
A Healthy Body Requires A Healthy Diet
Some people claim that animal testing can help find cures for diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, which may seem beneficial to public health. But what we are beginning to find out is that a simple change in diet is actually the key to treating these diseases. Needless to say, this is a much more compassionate alternative.
Support compassionate products
Thankfully, with the world gaining more clarity about compassionate matters, cruelty-free and vegan products are abound. PETA’s got a good list on their Beauty Without Bunnies page; Leaping Bunny is a good source for compassionate shopping, and so is this cruelty-free shopping guide! Mostly it’s safe to look for the cruelty-free symbol on packages (in many parts of the world it’s a crossed-out bunny to convey anti-testing). A collective effort to support cruelty-free products can really make an impact.
So what’s the role of animals in your life?
