i've put this on a few vegan forums so sorry if you've seen this already :P


was wondering if anyone could recommend an ethical company that makes curling tongs for your hair?

i dont wanna buy braun or revlon or something like that.
what about makes like babyliss or nicky clarke?

Braun is bad? I didn't know that! I never thought my mixer could be a bad thing. :(

i havent found a definite ethical company yet, after much searching online. however, the ethical shopping guide has a link to gooshing.co.uk - a site which finds ethical products such as these, for you.

http://www.gooshing.co.uk/hair_styling/

it gives the mark hill morphy richards tongs the best rating, but they are still not 100% ethical. they mark brands on things like their animal testing policies and effect on environment, boycott calls & so on.

what a nice little find :)

Revlon are an ethical company aren't they? I remember a few people on another forum saying their products are not animal tested.

No. I didn't even know that they made toothbrushes. I thought they only made electrical appliances. *ignorant*

no youre not ignorant..its easy not to know about things...

i guess cos i spend a lot of my time investigating companies..and i knew about them ages ago, so i guess its just something ive known about for a long time.

theres still a few companies im not even sure about.
