Lawyers for Animals were awarded $5,000 for their project entitled ‘A report on animal testing in cosmetics’. The report was aimed at educating members of the community about the use of animal testing by the cosmetics industry, and the need for mandatory and responsible labelling of cosmetics that test on animals, and/or contain animal-derived ingredients. The report was distributed online via the Lawyers for Animals website, and in hard copy to all relevant media agencies, animal welfare groups and relevant government departments.
