Lipton Tea Had Animal Testing!

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

My goodness! I never knew that Unilever, maker of Lipton Teas, had done animal testings to experiment with their teas! My gosh! Care2.com reported.

lipton tea from unilever had animal testing for their teas

Animal Testings
According to PETA, Unilever did these experiments on animals;
Rabbits were fed high-fat and cholesterol diets and tea to see if the tea protected their arteries.
Mice were used to see if tea would decrease a deliberately created inflammation on their bowels. How cruel is this??
Rats and piglets were also tested on with various kinds of sufferings inflicted upon them to test for health benefits from tea.

These tests were conducted to see if there were any health benefits so that the company can put those healthy, marvelous benefits of their tea in their ads.

Animals that don't heal up or get better or worse, were euthanized. Something like what you do when your pet is going to die painfully and you make it a quick, painless one for them at the vet.

How Now?
PETA was campaigning against Unilever's animal testings and it worked out successfully. Unilever gave out an official statement;

“Given the leadership role our tea category takes in the area of environmental sustainability and the ethical sourcing of tea, Unilever is committing to no animal testing for our tea and tea-based beverages, with immediate effect.”

Thank god. To think that the famous brand Lipton was produced from animal sufferings are unbearable and unbelievable, I think this is a good thing. The result is good and congratulations to PETA for their hard work!







Shine on,

  2. Very welcome. It's a very crazy and shocking news to me. The animal testing might be gone now, given the fact that Unilever has came out with that statement above.

  3. That's very kind of you, Del. Sometimes I told my friends about the animal abuse by some companies. But they don't really care and still buy from these companies.

    Thanks for your reply and have a nice day. :-)
