Unbelievable!<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Co-op one of the more ethical supermarkets have teamed up with the animal testing company P & G in a bid to raise money for a charity. For every P & G product sold the co-op will donate 3 pence to Wellchild a member of the Association of Medical Research charities that promotes the use of animals in research.<br><br><br><br>
Contact the co-op and request as a ethical company they restrict their charitable promotions to companies and charities that not fund animal experiments. Phone (uk) 0800 068 6727 or email <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I for one will stick more labels than ever now on P & G products in the co-op telling customers that these products where tested on animals.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

Is P&G only doing this with the Co-Op? These kinds of promotions happen all the time in the US, but most of the ones I've seen aren't limited by store.

The co-operative stores are popular here for their non animal testing stance and their own products are endorsed by the British Abolition of Vivisection (Bavs) with their bunny logo and many vegans and AR folks go there for their products.<br><br>
The Co-opative bank is famous for its ethical stance and animal welfare issues<br><br>
and is proud to announce they do not use products tested on animals. For that reason I dont target them with leaflets, will now though!!.<br><br><br><br>
So this is why we are all horrified and dsigusted that they are teaming up with the vile P&G. Makes a mockery of their policies.

Yeah...I actually just bought some shampoo/conditioner there a couple of weeks ago. I like the idea of supporting a co-op, our local branch is opening again here in a few months' time.<br><br><br><br>
Hm..strange that they would choose P&G to partner with.

I was always very impressed with the Co op, until I saw <a href="http://www.ethiscore.org/company.aspx?id=13240" target="_blank">this piece</a> about them from Ethiscore, which rates companies and products for Ethical Consumer Magazine. It's not very nice reading.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:">

In the US, our ASPCA has teamed up with P&G. The ASPCA is actually asking people to buy P&G products because for a limited time, they recieve a few cents for every product purchased.<br><br><br><br>
In the US, the campaign against P&G is essentially at a standstill, and P&G partners with many charities and grocery chains to boost public image. Perhaps the P&G campaign is still active in the UK.

Thanks for the link Black Heart. The co-op obviously has double standards.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wall.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wall:">

The Co-op although do <a href="http://www.buav.org/" target="_blank">http://www.buav.org/</a> approved products as has already been mentioned with the rabbit logo and are probably one of the more "ethical" approved of "the bad bunch(supermarkets)" and have a good range of vegan labeled products.<br><br>
They still raise money for the British HeartLESS foundation<br><br><a href="http://www.britishheartlessfoundation.com/" target="_blank">http://www.britishheartlessfoundation.com/</a><br><br>
aswell as now recenlty joining up with the evil P&G .<br><br><br><br>
If anyone does arrange demo's outside CO-OP stores also have leaflets showing about how animal testing is a danger to humans .<br><br>
UNCAGED also do these.<br><br><a href="http://www.uncaged.co.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.uncaged.co.uk/</a><br><br><br><br>
good luck everybody

I usually stick labels on the P&G products and drop leaflets on the shelves amongst P&G stuff.</div>

Be careful about sticking labels on things in the store. It is considered vandalism....
