Lipton and PG Tips end animal tests

Posted on 1 February 2011

It seems to have been only the other week when we reported that Unilever were using animals in experiments for their tea brands Lipton and PG Tips, which made these products not suitable for vegans.

Well today, we bring you some great news! – according to PeTA, Unilever have stated on their website that “Unilever is committing to no animal testing for our tea and tea-based beverages, with immediate effect”.

So Lipton and PG Tips are now suitable for vegans, as seems to be the natural status for tea drinks.

PeTA also claim that over 40,000 supporters joined in their call to action and emailed Unilever to complain about their tests and ask them to stop. It appears that this great collective effort has had the desired effect, so a big “well done” to all those that joined in and made Unilever aware of your concerns. It’s very satisfying to know that our efforts are not wasted and that we can effect positive changes from petitions and email campaigns.

Thanks also to PeTA for instigating the action and bringing us this news.
