Unilever threatens to pull ads from Facebook and Google if they fail to protect children, promote hate or create division in society.

Unilever are huge their products include foods, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products. The company owns more than 400 brands, which are organised into four main categories – Foods, Refreshments, Home Care, and Personal Care. Unilever’s current largest-selling brands include: Axe/Lynx, Ben & Jerry’s, Dove, Flora/Becel, Heartbrand, Hellmann’s/Best Foods, Knorr, Lipton, Lux/Radox, Omo/Surf, Rexona/Sure, Sunsilk, TRESemmé, Magnum,Vaseline and VO5.

Unilever is threatening to withdraw its advertising from online platforms such as Facebook and Google if they fail to protect children, promote hate or create division in society.

In a speech, Keith Weed, the Unilever chief marketing officer, said that, as a brand-led business, Unilever “needs its consumers to have trust in our brands”.

He went on to say “Unilever will not invest in platforms or environments that do not protect our children or which create division in society, and promote anger or hate,” he plans to say. “We will prioritise investing only in responsible platforms that are committed to creating a positive impact in society.”

Sounds good of them until we consider who and what Unilever are and what they do.

Global firms behind popular brands such as Kit Kat, Colgate toothpaste and Dove (Unilever) cosmetics use palm oil produced by child workers in dangerous conditions, Amnesty International has claimed.

The human rights organisation traced a range of well-known products back to the palm oil company Wilmar, which it alleged employs children to do back-breaking physical labour on refineries in Indonesia.

Singapore-based Wilmar counts multinational companies including Kellogg’s, Unilever, Colgate-Palmolive, Reckitt Benckiser and Nestlé among its major clients, according to Amnesty.

In a 110-page report accompanied by a video, Amnesty alleged products sold by those companies were “tainted by appalling human rights abuses … with children as young as eight working in hazardous conditions”. So much for “not investing in platforms or environments that do not protect our children or which create division in society.”

The report called on the companies implicated to tell customers whether the palm oil in individual products such as Magnum ice-creams, Ariel detergent, Knorr soup, Pantene shampoo and Aero chocolate bars were made using child labour.

“These findings will shock any consumer who thinks they are making ethical choices in the supermarket when they buy products that claim to use sustainable palm oil,” said the senior Amnesty investigator Meghna Abraham.

“There is nothing sustainable about palm oil that is produced using child labour and forced labour. Something is wrong when nine companies turning over a combined revenue of £260bn in 2015 are unable to do anything about the atrocious treatment of palm oil workers earning a pittance.”

It is not the first time that Unilever has been criticized and exposed for abusing human right laws.

Unilever’s abuses and disregard for human life and human rights is disgraceful and not “creating a positive impact in society.” They also perform cruel tests and experiments on animals. Despite promoting themselves as “anti animal testing” Unilever have been caught using chemicals that have been tested on animals in insanely cruel experiments numerous times.

The hypocrisy that Unilever and Keith Weed are displaying here is shocking. For the record Facebook and Google DO NOT POST ANYTHING. Keith Weed and Unilever are not trying to censor corporate giants they are trying to censor PEOPLE that use Facebook and Google. BOYCOTT UNILEVER FOR GOOD.

Animal testing in the UK!!!

According to the RSPCA website: It is illegal to test on animals for cosmetics or their ingredients in the UK and other EU members, and since March 2013 it was illegal to sell cosmetics products within the EU which have been tested on animals or which contain ingredients newly tested on animals.
However Britain has voted against staying in the EU, and these laws will  no longer need to be followed by the UK, as well as many other laws and regulations provided by the EU. Britain voted to brexit in 2016, however stats from 2015 show that 4.14 million animals were experimented on in Britain. Although for now it is illegal to test on animals for cosmetics (as article 50 has not yet been used), there is always loop holes to laws, for example: As acne is a medical condition, make-up can be tested on animals as it helps cover acne.
Recently the Home Office released its annual statistics on the number of scientific procedures performed on animals in British laboratories, with a staggering 4,14 million animals being tested on. These experiments were conducted on:
  • 3 million mice
  • 21,831 on guinea pigs
  • 8,356 on Horses and other Equids
  • 4,643 on Dogs
  • 3,612 on Primates
126,000 of these animals didn’t regain consciousness after experiments that were classified as ‘non-recovery’, and a further 185,000 experiments were classed as ‘severe’ in the level of suffering caused to the animals. If that wasn’t bad enough a further 56,000 animals were forced to suffer extreme pain and distress without even being used in experiments. These are genetically modified animals which will often have painful unnatural mutations.
Its embarrassing that in 2015 we are still using methods used 400 years ago and have not yet been able to progress into a less cruel and humane society.  Although there are many new ways to test medication without harming animals, but these are more expensive ways. These new methods include:
  • human-on-a-chip
  • 3-D human skin cultures
  • high speed computer models
These methods are not only less cruel but the results are far more accurate. It has been proved over and over again that animal testing doesn’t work, that even though we share 95% of our DNA with a mouse testing on these animals doesn’t work. With FACTS such as:
  • Ninety two percent of experimental drugs that are safe and effective on animals fail human clinics because they don’t work or fail.
  • Less than 2% of human illnesses are seen in animals. Over 98% never affect animals. So, how can we test vaccines and medication on animals for human beings?
  • In the UK an estimated 70,000 people die or are severely disabled every year caused by unexpected reactions to drugs. These drugs had passed animal testing.
  • In the UK’s House of Lords questions have been asked regarding why unexpected reactions to drugs, which have passed animal testing, kill more people than cancer.
  • According to a thorough study, 88% of stillbirths are caused by drugs which have passed animal testing.
  • 70% of drugs that cause human birth defects are safe in Monkey pregnancies.
One of the things that surprises me the most is that even though in 2015 we have more ways to test medications without the harm of animals, the number has increased quite significantly in 2014 being 3.8 million. In the UK we are supposed to be living in one of the most developed countries in the world, yet we still result to torturing 4.14 million animals.
Many of my blogs have been on this topic and i have been blogging about this for over a year, and i still feel as strongly about this subject as i ever have. Animals are living, breathing, feeling things, animals have emotions, animals feel pain, if we were to do what we do to animals to humans we would be sent to prison for many years, but for some reason its okay to do this to Monkeys, Dogs, horses e.t.c. and I cant think of a good reason why its okay to do this, i suppose some people just seem to think that we are superior to animals and that its okay to torture and murder as long as its not a Human but to animals we share 95% of our DNA with.
