Humane Talk #8044 (02-02-2015)

Humane Talk (02-02-2015) #8044: Do you think about cruelty-free products? Was the shampoo you use tested on animals? Did your toothpaste or lipstick cause suffering for animals in labs? We’ve made great progress in phasing out animal tests for many products, but several companies have backslid on their cruelty-free pledges; Wayne talks about touring farms in rural America, and more about how HSUS works with farmers to phase out cruel confinement practices and work together to advance animal welfare. (Conversations recorded previously in 2012.)
