Peter Dinklage joins Cruelty Free International to welcome the introduction of the Humane Cosmetics Act to end animal tests

Peter Dinklage - Emmy and Golden Globe award winning actor, Peter Dinklage, star of Game of Thrones has today joined with Cruelty Free International, the leading global organization working to end animal testing for cosmetics and consumer products, in welcoming the introduction of the Humane Cosmetics Act. The Humane Cosmetics Act, introduced by U.S. Representatives Don Beyer (D-VA), Martha McSally (R -AZ), Joe Heck (R -NV) and Tony Cardenas (D-CA), would end animal testing for cosmetics after a one year phase in and would further phase out the sale of animal tested cosmetics in three years. Peter Dinklage, well known for his role as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones states: "Testing cosmetics on animals is a cruel, outdated, and unnecessary practice. I am proud to join Cruelty Free International in supporting the Humane Cosmetics Act to end cosmetics testing on animals in the United States." Peter Dinklage joined Cruelty Free International as its US Ambassador in April 2012 and has since helped to raise awareness of the continued cruel use of animals to test everyday beauty products and toiletries from soap to toothpaste. Cruelty Free International Chief Executive, Michelle Thew commented, "We congratulate U.S. Representatives Don Beyer (D-VA), Martha McSally (R -AZ), Joe Heck (R -NV) and Tony Cardenas (D-CA), for introducing this landmark bill. We are delighted to have the support of Peter Dinklage and we now urge everyone to call on their Representatives to get behind the Humane Cosmetics Act so that the United States can join the global trend in moving away from the cruel use of animals to test cosmetics. The European Union ban on the testing and marketing of animal-tested cosmetics and ingredients came into effect in 2013. As well as Europe, Israel and India now have bans in place while New Zealand, Brazil, South Korea, and Vietnam are also making strides toward ending cosmetics testing on animals and China has lifted the animal testing requirement for certain cos at Golden Globe - - Friday 1st February 2013 (1 Picture)
