A N I M A L T E S T I N G (swipe to see more facts) We are P R O U D to say that our products are completely V E G A N and that our inks have N E V E R been tested on animals FACTS Research by Cruelty Free International suggests that at least 115 million animals may be used in experiments worldwide each year The top 9 animal testing countries in the world are the USA, Japan, China, Australia, France, Canada, the UK, Germany and Brazil, in that order.
Animal experiments are sadly not in decline, and in many parts of the world are on the increase (e.g. China) or remain at the same level as they were in the 1980s or 1990s (e.g. the UK, Europe).
UK PERSPECTIVE According to the Government figures a total of 3.9 million experiments were completed in Great Britain during 2016.Of these, 1.9 million related to the creation or breeding of genetically altered animals who were not used in further experiments. Almost 700,000 animals were subjected to experiments that even the researchers considered had caused them moderate or severe suffering. Animals used in the UK included mice (1.2 million experiments), rats, birds, rabbits, guinea-pigs, monkeys, dogs, cats, horses, sheep, pigs, and fish. Of the 2.0 million experiments conducted on animals, 55% (1.1 million experiments) were in the area of basic research – much of it driven by the curiosity of university researchers. 49% of experiments were conducted in universities, often using taxpayers’ funds. Only 13% of experiments were apparently required by regulators. In 2016, 89% of experiments conducted on monkeys used animals who were imported from outside the EU.
