At Plant Therapy, we believe making a positive impact on the world isn’t just nice words to say — they’re words to live by. So how can we show our compassion and commitment to a better world?
One way is through our Leaping Bunny certification.
Unfortunately, with so many products on the market, it can be difficult for consumers to cipher through the mess to find the products that truely align with their core values. Most of us are aware that animal testing runs rampant throughout the cosmetic, household, pharmaceutical, and food industries, really encompassing all of the products we use every day. Most of us are also utterly disgusted by these awful testing practices, which can range from testing for skin and eye irritation to forcing potentially carcinogenic materials into the animal, effectively harming or ending the lives of so many living creatures.
What’s more, tactical marketing practices can imply that companies use cruelty-free ingredients, sometimes using ambiguous claims and even going so far as creating knock-off bunny logos. This creates an even more confusing environment for everyone who’s looking to make the right choices for our furry friends.
That is why we want to make the choice easy for you. Our Leaping Bunny logo lets you know that we abide by the only internationally recognized symbol that guarantees to you, our amazing customers, that no new animal tests were used in the development of any of our products.
What is Leaping Bunny?
In response to the growing number of companies designing their own bunny logos and creating their own standards for what ‘cruelty-free’ and ‘animal friendly’ means, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC spearheaded a comprehensive standard and internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo, which shows consumers that the products are accredited and licensed by this distinguished third-party organization.
As the most trusted cruelty-free certification for non-animal tested products, achieving the Leaping Bunny logo proves that businesses are truely committed to producing and selling products that are not tested on animals. Sadly, much of the world continues to allow animal testing, resulting in countless rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, and rats suffering through cruel testing routines.
Leaping Bunny presents businesses with rigorous criteria they must meet and maintain. At Plant Therapy, we are required to adhere to their strict no animal testing standards and their Supplier Monitoring System. This system requires us to show and submit proof of documents that each and every supplier we use for our products complies with Leaping Bunny’s standards. We also recommit annually through independent audits to ensure we continue to comply with these high standards.
