A Different Kind Of Bunny

Happy Wordless (Bahahaha) Wednesday Everyone!

I'd like to introduce you all to a new friend of mine...as you will, a different kind of Bunny! ;-)

Have you met him before? Well, if not, this is the Leaping Bunny! I only met him a couple of days ago, when I read about the EU's recent ban on all cosmetic product animal testing!! :-D That's right, the EU, after 23 years of immense campaigning, have finally banned all animal testing on all new cosmetics!!! Wonderful news, isn't it?!

The Leaping Bunny lets consumers know that a particular product and/or brand has gone through a rigorous 'cruelty-free' certification process and that no part of its product development, ingredients or final product have been tested on animals!

Even though the ban only exists in the EU, the Bunny lives on Worldwide, so please check the packaging on all your cosmetics, household, and even some pet products and see if the Bunny visits your home too! ;-)

We were sad to see that only 10-15% of the products used in our house were deemed Bunny worthy! :-( If you would like to see what companies have passed certification, please click here!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!


  1. We'll check that out. We would love to chase a bunny, no mistake; but to think of them caged and having icky things done to them and their eyes is revolting.

    We'll go check our stuff again.

  2. Love that bunny. We are quite familiar with it. Thanks for posting it - nice way to introduce it.

  3. Nice introduction. We love the bunny logo. Brilliant idea. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Well I didn't know about the bunny so happy ya told me...now let's get the US to do more! :) Thanks for telling me about this!! you rock!

  5. We checked our stores yesterday and couldn't find a single certified product......but mom makes all her own soaps and lotions and knows the only thing they get tested on is herself :)

  6. Wow, that is it interesting! I did not know about this little bunny. Good to go EU.

  7. We love the Leaping Bunny and promote her all the time! Thanks for helping spread the word. Happy WW!

  8. I just read about that and was glad to hear someone has started certifying companies and products. It's nice to know who does (or doesn't do) testing.

  9. We will be a looking over here to see if it show up!

  11. GREAT, WONDERFUL and AMAZING! Run, run little Bunny!
    How good those Humans were to Campaign for so long.
    I don't live in the EU, but am so very pleased all the same!

  12. I'm liking this Leaping Bunny. I hope more brands in North America start using it. I try to look for cruelty free brands, but it gets hard sometimes. Happy Wednesday, Goose!

  13. Thanks for sharing about the Leaping Bunny! I hope it becomes more popular in the US too! Happy WW!

  14. Oh my Gooshness... Goose is so adorable! Look at that face. That is wonderful news, btw. Animal testing is no bueno but it's good that you remind people that this still happens. I know I can forget to be vigilent at times.

    Are you going to the BlogPaws conference in May? I just signed up! I'm excited to connect with the community. :)

  15. Mom doesn't do much with cosmetics, but has been wanting more natural cleaners. It would be good to know which ones are bunny friendly.
