With 10 years in total being fought HAD resulted in promises from the EU to prevent ALL animal testing on cosmetics and the ingredients used in cosmetics by March 2013.
HOWEVER it looks like the EU decision-makers are looking to get ANOTHER 10 years extension, which in my opinion (and obviously LUSH's) is unacceptable.
To help to make sure the ban is upheld and enforced, LUSH are asking for our help. On their website they have put up links to find out who your local MEP's are and how to contact them. They have even gone that extra mile and written their own letter for you to send to them if (like I was) you're a little stuck for words. Heres a link to the article on their website: Lush Article
