What is Cruelty Free?

PiggyThe term “cruelty-free product” is a product that has not been tested on animals by the manufacturer. It’s important to buy cruelty-free products to support companies that are animal-friendly and to boycott companies that still test on animals.

The Cruelty Free Shop carries only cruelty-free products that are Vegan. That means the product that has not been tested on animals, and does not contain any animal ingredients.

Free-range, cage-free eggs and dairy products still cause the suffering and deaths of animals. When egg-laying hens or dairy cows are too old to be profitable, they are slaughtered for their meat. Going vegan is the only solution.

Veganism is the practice of avoiding harm to all animals, which requires abstention from all animal products, such as meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey, gelatin, lanolin, wool, fur, silk, suede and leather.

How to live Cruelty Free

Switch to a Vegan Diet

The most direct way to help animals is to eat no animal products. With less demand, fewer animals will be bred and slaughtered for human consumption.

Do Not Purchase Items Made of Fur, Leather, Wool or Silk.

Decreasing the demand for animal products will cause fewer animals to be bred and killed for them. Fur, leather and silk all require the deaths of animals for their production. Commercial production of wool sometimes includes cruel practices, and always leads to the killing of individual sheep who are unable to produce enough quality wool or are unable to breed.

Boycott Companies That Test on Animals

We have done the research for you. The Cruelty Free Shop carries only cruelty-free products.

Spayed and Neuter Your Pets

Millions of unwanted cats, dogs and rabbits are put to sleep every year. By spaying and neutering your own animals, you’ll make sure that you are not contributing to the problem.

Adopt From a Shelter or Rescue Group

There are so many shelters full of lovable, adoptable animals, we should provide homes for the animals who are already here instead of breeding more.

Boycott Zoos, Circuses and Other Types of Animal Entertainment

Support animal-free circuses, like Cirque du Soleil.
