Capstone Spreads Awareness About Animal Testing

Students, passionate about protecting animals, informed others of companies who perform makeup testing on animals as part of their Senior Capstone Project.

Sara Bowman, Lauren Eifert, Sarah Grady and Queen Peters-Thornton worked together to spread the message against animal cruelty.

“I have always wanted to put an end to animal cruelty and when we thought of the idea of animal makeup testing, I thought it was a good idea,” Peters-Thornton shared.

On Wednesday, February 22, the group encouraged other students to wear pictures of animals on their shirts to promote their solidarity against animal testing. Posters with the names of products that use animal testing were also hung around school.

“I hope students learned the value of integrity to not only humans but also animals,” Bowman said.

The group added that they are looking ways to continue to spread the message against animal cruelty.

“We possibly will be visiting shelters and looking for animals that have been tested on to see the effects of them afterwards,” Peters-Thornton noted.

Bowman added, “I enjoyed this learning experience and the lessons of working with others that went along with it! #BeCrueltyFree.”
