Hawaii Proposes to End Animal Testing for Good
Hawaiian legislators recently introduced two new bills that would halt animal testing on the island chain. Both bills, which are backed by Cruelty-Free Internationa (CFI), would put an end to the cruel and unnecessary suffering of animals when many more effective, animal-free methods exist.
The first bill, the Hawaii Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, would ban the sale of any and all cosmetics that were tested on animals. If the bill is successfully passed it will come into effect in January 2020. The second bill would mandate that both manufacturers and labs in Hawaii use only scientifically approved, non-animal alternatives for tests on cosmetics and household products.
Hawaii would be in great company with the ban on animal-tested cosmetics. CFI explains, “Hawaii will join over 30 countries including the European Union, Norway, Israel, and India in prohibiting the sale of new animal tested cosmetics.”
