I’ve Changed My Mind
I’ve changed my mind About PETA & Cruelty-Free Beauty. When I’m presented with new information (facts), and it contradicts a belief I held in the past, I change my mind. It’s what we should do as adults. Many people will avoid admitting they were wrong, but I think it shows growth to admit you were wrong and you’ve changed you mind based on new information. So today I’m talking about PETA, that I think I actually trust them, and which brands are truly cruelty-free. I now believe most, if not all, of the brands on PETA’s list are cruelty-free. Obviously, I still prefer Leaping Bunny, but with the changes that have happened in China over the past few years, I feel that more brands are cruelty-free.
To Be Clear, I support PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies program, not all of PETA or their initiatives, which I do not agree with. I do not agree with their agendas against pitbulls, the mass euthanizing of animals, or that we should not have pets. I’m a responsible pet owner who always gets my pets spayed / neutered, and have never had my animals accidentally get pregnant.

As you know, Jen from My Beauty Bunny is one of my besties. She has a call scheduled today with PETA to try to clear up some misconceptions with them. Jen also wrote a great article about animal testing bans in the USA. She also wrote about how she is adding First Aid Beauty, Physicians Formula, Wet n’ Wild and More to her cruelty free list.
Changing Your Mind
I believe it’s critical to our lives to be willing to be flexible and change our minds when presented with new information instead of doubling down on a long held belief. It’s especially important if you are presented with new facts to be able to think about them critically and adjust your beliefs accordingly. With all of the new information presented to me about animal testing in China, how it is about as likely in China as it now is in the USA, I’ve changed my mind. I consider PETA’s cruelty-free list to be accurate for most, if not all brands. And that’s a huge change from my beliefs, especially from when I first went cruelty-free in 2012.
I’m not perfect. I don’t claim to be. I’ve grown a lot over the past decade, which is a good thing! It’s important to keep growing, keep learning, and change your mind when presented with new information.
So tell me, what’s something you’ve changed your mind about recently? What do you think about PETA?
