By not buying animal products, vegans are helping decrease the demand for cruel animal experiments. If we didn’t eat animals, then the need for experiments to make farming animals to eat as profitable as possible, wouldn’t exist. It really is that simple.
Not everyone who supports an end to animal testing is vegan but is one of the many steps that people can take to help end animal experimentation in NZ.
