Urge the government to introduce a bill to ban cosmetic animal testing
In 2019, Bill S-214, The Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, died on the order paper, which sadly means that cosmetic animal testing is still legal in Canada. The Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act would have made it illegal to test cosmetics products or ingredients on animals here in Canada, and also ban the sale of beauty products that have been newly tested on animals anywhere in the world, following the example already set by 40 countries, including the European Union, Australia, Colombia, Guatemala, Israel, India, Taiwan and New Zealand. The Canadian government needs to hear that you support a ban on cosmetic animal testing! This website has information and tools that can make a difference. GET INVOLVED: https://hsi.global/SaveRalph
about the film: Save Ralph is a powerful stop-motion animation short film featuring Oscar winner Taika Waititi as the voice of Ralph, who is being interviewed for a documentary as he goes through his daily routine as a “tester” in a lab. HSI’s #SaveRalph campaign tackles the cruelty of animal testing in an original and unexpected way—using the story of one bunny to shine a light on the plight of countless rabbits and other animals in laboratories around the world. While Ralph is animated, the miseries he endures in the short film are far from made up. As Spencer Susser, the director of Save Ralph, says, “It’s so important that Ralph feels real because he represents countless real animals who suffer every day.” Susser, known for his film Hesher, is among a slate of powerhouse celebrities and influencers who collaborated with Humane Society International on the making of Save Ralph. In addition to Waititi as Ralph and Gervais as the interviewer, the film has Zac Efron as Bobby, Olivia Munn as Marshmallow, Pom Klementieff as Cinnamon and Tricia Helfer as Cottonballs. Producer Jeff Vespa (Voices of Parkland) teamed up with the Arch Model studio of puppet maker supreme Andy Gent (Isle of Dogs, The Grand Budapest Hotel) on the production.
