Tea made extra sweet: animal testing taken out of Unilever tea

Remember my Keep animal testing out of your tea cup post? Great news: they did! Unilever has agreed to stop their cruel animal tests immediately! It’s so rare that I read those words so I was so excited to read that last night. I was about to write about it on here for all of you as soon as I read it on Vegansaurus and VegNews, but it was so late and I was getting behind on my tip (by the second day already, gosh!). I was worried that with this blog I’d just be filling you in on bad news and what we can do about it all the time, but I’ve already reported about so many victories… it’s amazing! Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and spread the word!

And yes, that is my snazzy tea cup!

    That is so awesome!!!! This makes me excited :) is Unilever a brand of tea?? Or is this meaning ALL tea companies are going to stop testing on animals? If thats the case, that is super exciting!!! And I LOVE you tea cup!! I saw the picture and was like “Hey!! Thats her tea cup!!!” lol and it fits perfectly with this post :)

    I definitely agree with all of you!

    Misty – Unilever is a huge company that’s all over the world. I mostly know of it because of shampoo and other hair products. Wikipedia describes it as “a British-Dutch multinational corporation that owns many of the world’s consumer product brands in foods, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products.” I WISH this would mean that all teas all over the world no longer tested on animals, but unfortunately they’re not connected like that. It’s still fantastic that Unilever’s tea is no longer tested because the three teas mentioned, especially Lipton, are huge! I thought the animals on my cup fit pretty well, too. :)
