Replacing your everyday items with cruelty-free brands is easier than you’d think. Start simple with a few household items you might need to replace.



Pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline tests on animals and sells top name brands like Aquafresh toothpaste. While it’s an easy go-to, there are so many brands you can swap in, like Uncle Harry’s, Tom’s Toothpaste, Nature’s Gate natural toothpaste and Dr. Bronners. Read the full list here.


Cleaning Products

One name brand synonymous with cleaning products is Clorox, but they also test on animals. Replace all the cleaning wipes, bleach and detergent with cruelty-free brands like

Mrs. Myer’s and anything in the household and cleaning sections of Brandless.


Skin and Hair Care

Johnson & Johnson is a big name in the hair and skin care department, with products like Clean & Clear and Aveeno, but they also test on animals. Trade out your shampoo and conditioner when finished or start anew with your skincare routine with this list of cruelty-free, all-natural and vegan products.


Check out the full list of products and brands that test on animals and see what you can easily replace.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
