Don’t test on me!
Ecover, manufacturer of eco-friendly household cleaning products, has lost their seal of approval from the Vegan Society.
It turns out that Ecover tests detergents on water fleas as a way to measure the environmental impact of their products on aquatic life. It’s annoying that Ecover makes the specious and speciesist argument that water fleas aren’t animals, rather than just sticking to the fact that their priority is mitigating the environmental impact of their products.
It also turns out that they test on blood taken from farmed rabbits. As the
Vegan Society says, “We have mutually agreed with Ecover to withdraw our registration because they are not meeting our criteria.”
