This year marks, the 12th anniversary of Boycott P&G Day. We need your
help as we strive to increase the pressure on P&G to change their
cruel animal testing practices. The 11th anniversary of the Day of
Action in 2007 saw over 140 Boycott P&G actions taking place all around the world.

In Canada alone, P&G's consumer products sales are over $2.9 billion. Millions of people use P&G products everyday unaware that the company
still conducts lethal animal tests to develop new cosmetic & household products and chemical ingredients.

Yet polls reveal most consumers would switch to a cruelty-free company if only they had the necessary information. Everyone has a vital role to play in informing consumers about P&G's animal testing, and the hundreds of cruelty-free alternatives available.

P&G spends millions of dollars to package itself as a responsible, caring company, and claims to be a leader in the development of alternatives to the use of animals in product testing.

The truth is that P&G could stop animal testing today without hindering anyone's safety. We urge everyone to boycott of P&G until the company abandons all unnecessary animal tests, including those carried out by Iams/Eukanuba.

Other P&G BRANDS that are TESTED ON ANIMALS include Cover Girl, Max
Factor, Noxzema, Ohm, Olay, Camay, Ivory, Safeguard, Zest, Secret,
Sure, Luvs, Pampers, Always, Pantene, Pringles, Folgers, Milstone
Coffee, Sunny Delight, Torengos, Giorgio of Beverly Hills, Helmut
Lang, Herve Leger, Hugo Boss, Old Spice, Bounty, Charmin, Puffs,
Downy, Actonel, Duracell, Olay, Head & Shoulders, Wella, A Touch of
Sun, Aussie, Balsam Color, Clairol, Head & Shoulders, Herbal Essences,
Hydrience, Infusium 23, Lasting Color, Loving Care, Men's Choice,
Natural Instincts, Nice 'n Easy, Pantene, Pert Plus, Physique,
Ultress, Vidal Sassoon, Bounce, Cascade, Cheer, Comet, Dawn, Downy,
Dreft, Dryel, Era, Febreze, Gain, Ivory, Ivory Snow, Joy, Mr. Clean,
Swiffer, Tide, Gillette, Braun, DayQuil, Metamucil, NyQuil,
Pepto-Bismol, PUR water filtration system, Sinex, Thermacare, Vicks,
Crest, Fixodent, Gleem, Oral-B, Scope and Whitestrips.

We urge everyone to boycott P&G. Until it stops its animal cruelty,
the letters P&G will stand for nothing but Pain & Greed!
