Stress Free Cruelty Free
Our stress free cruelty free event was put on to give student an opportunity to relax and de-stress before finals as well as educate students on animal testing. During the event, several stations were set up around the room where students could come and go as they please. Some of these included coloring, hair styling, nail painting, and board games.Several dogs as well as one of our member's hedgehogs was on site. Students were able to get plenty of puppy snuggles as well as learn a bit of information about hedgehogs! Products have been shown to be tested on a variety of animals, and even includes dogs and other small critters. So students were able to relate animal testing back to our animals on site and learn the importance of choosing products that have no animal harm involved.
Our President, Emma, preformed several sessions of yoga in a separate room to allow students to rejuvenate before exams.
Our E-board member Jasmin Herendeen gave a speech on animal testing and way that we as consumers can stop buying products that have been tested on animals. Jasmin has owned a few rats in the past, and shared her experiences as a pet owner. Since rats are the animals that usually receive the most testing, Jasmin definitely has a passion for fighting animal testing.
Product samples from the Body Shop were given to students as well as Vegetarian Jimmy John's subs. In addition, students were also able to pledge to be cruelty free by signing our banner that was inside the room as well.
At the end of the event, raffle prizes were given out to those who had bought raffle tickets. All of the proceeds were donated to help fight animal testing.
