Cruelty-Free Cleaning



There is nothing I love more than a good sort out and massive Spring clean of my home but when I went completely cruelty-free two years ago I knew that there where going to be some big changed in my life, my diet and my makeup collection, however, I never thought that I would have to change my cleaning products. I was disgusted to find out that certain brands test their cleaning products on animals and some cleaning products even contain animal blood, guts or urine - imagine cleaning your home with that?! And disgracefully, there is no law whatsoever to stop animal testing for household cleaning products yet in the UK. So, I wanted to share an awesome cruelty-free cleaning range from Aldi*!



From January 1st 2018, Aldi* have been pleased to announce their entire own-label household and beauty range has been accredited as cruelty-free certified by leading animal protection organisation, Cruelty-Free International. How amazing is that?! They are proud to be only one of only four UK retailers to have been awarded the gold standard leaping bunny certification across both our household and our health and beauty ranges so when you're next in one of their stores look out for the internationally-recognised leaping bunny logo and you’ll know that no new animal tests were used in the development of that product.

"This is hugely important to us and our customers. It makes cruelty free certified products more accessible and affordable" confirmed Aldi* UK’s Managing Director of Corporate Responsibility, Oliver King. "We congratulate Aldi for demonstrating its commitment to eliminating animal testing and helping customers make a cruelty free decision when purchasing cleaning products" added Cruelty Free International Chief Executive, Michelle Thew.

Of course, that’s not all Aldi do to support animal welfare - they are also the second largest retailer of RSPCA Assured products in the UK! So why not scrap going to your local supermarket and start shopping at Aldi* from now on?


With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  11. It's easy to remember when it comes to purchasing make up that cruelty free is the way forward as so many people talk about CF beauty, but I often forget that things such as household products can also be tested on animals, so thank you for this important reminder! I'm going to start shopping at Aldi a lot more after the summer, because my new house is located very close to an Aldi shop, so I will certainly be buying from their cruelty free cleaning range!
