Nestea is Crueltea: Company tests products on animals

Imagine it's a warm summer day, and you're sitting out on your patio enjoying the sun shining down on you. You're warm, and a tall glass of cold iced tea sounds just about perfect. You go inside, open your refrigerator, and see that big bottle of Nestea sitting in there, all for you to drink.

That's when you remember what you heard about Nestea, and how it promotes animal cruelty. You might as well picture a mouse or rat drowning in the bottle, because by purchasing the beverage, you're supporting the mistreatment and death of these tiny, innocent animals.

Should animals be tortured and killed for the benefit of a refreshing summer drink? Why not find a beverage that doesn't harm animals in the process? There are so many animal-friendly iced teas to choose from, such as the popular Lipton, Arizona, Snapple, and Tazo. They all taste amazing, and they don't harm animals.

Nestlé, which makes Nestea, conducts deadly tests on animals, and actually pays other companies to do the same. The poor little critters are being electrically shocked, surgically mutilated, decapitated, and poisoned. No matter what way these unfortunate mice are tortured, they do not survive. Please take action, and pledge to refuse Nestea and other Nestlé products.

Let's spread the word and get everyone else to do the same. Animals should NOT be tortured for our selfish benefit.
