Ricky Gervais Launches Global Campaign to end Cosmetic Tests on Animals
Date:3/15/2012

BOSTON, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Cruelty Free International, a new global non-profit organization spells out vision to end product testing on animals worldwide.

Ricky Gervais, Ambassador for Cruelty Free International, states: "I am delighted to support the launch of Cruelty Free International, the exciting global campaign to end the use of animals in product testing. Animal testing for cosmetics is still allowed in most of the world. That means thousands of animals can continue to die for the sake of a new shampoo. We urgently need a worldwide ban on this cruel and unnecessary suffering."

Ricky, who stars in a campaign video for the new global NGO has launched a worldwide appeal:  

"It's time to close the door on testing products on animals.  Get involved. Please join me in supporting Cruelty Free International in its global mission to consign animal testing for cosmetics to the history books."

There is no worldwide ban on animal testing for cosmetics. Despite progress with some countries and companies, over 80% of the world still allows animals, including rabbits and guinea pigs, to be used in cruel experiments. In a global market it is important that all countries ban the practice to avoid testing simply moving around the world to those countries with no effective laws.

Established by the BUAV with corporate headquarters in London, UK, Cruelty Free International has partnered with NEAVS (the New England Anti-Vivisection Society, a  U.S. national 501 (c) 3 not for profit based in Boston, MA) to launch the U.S. Cruelty Free International office. Dr. Theodora Capaldo, Ed.D., President of NEAVS, will be representing this effort in the U.S. as the Cruelty Free International U.S. Executiv
