WDAIL 2020: A Cruelty-free Challenge

Cruelty-free Challenge

Inspiration does not hit when you need it but when it wants too. Today week, April 24th is World Day for Animals in Laboratories. Every year I try to organise a small awareness campaign online, like last year I asked rabbit pet owners to send me photos of their rabbit who later got featured on LovinMalta. After a weekend without TV, laptop and mobile, I came up with an idea. I thought of trying a cruelty-free Challenge where you and I can share photos or other content types of our pets, favourite cruelty-free products and brands. This way we raise awareness on why one should consider living cruelty-free and how easy it is to do so.

My idea was more for Instagram but you can take part in other social networks.

Friday 24th April is #WorldDayForAnimalsInLaboratories. I usually organise something small for a week. Last year I had asked you to share photos of your pet rabbit. Since everyone is locked inside this year, I thought I organise something easy that doesn't require going out. So I opted for a challenge. Mainly it's a #photochallenge but you are free to be creative by using other media types. If you wish to join these are the daily categories: 1. MON 20.4 – PET I thought of starting with this as a dedication. Example. I would dedicate this challenge to my pet rabbit. So a photo of your pet, your favourite animal, a photo of an animal you have on your gallery, etc. 2. TUES 21.4 – MAKE UP PRODUCT Could also be anything. I tried not to limit them to one particular product as some don't use certain makeup products, so I left it open. Could also be more than one. Example. Favourite cruelty-free makeup product, cruelty-free makeup product you are currently using, etc 3. WED 22.4 – CRUELTY-FREE BRAND Could also be more than one. Example. Favourite cruelty-free brand, cruelty-free brand you noticed you have a lot of products from, etc 4. THURS 23.4 – SKINCARE PRODUCT Could also be more than one. Example. Favourite cruelty-free skincare product, cruelty-free skincare product you are currently using, etc 5. FRI 23.4 – HAIR CARE PRODUCT Could also be more than one. Example. Favourite cruelty-free hair care product, cruelty-free hair care product you are currently using, etc When tagging me and hashtagging #crueltyfreemalta, I will share and tag your posts on my feed and stories. If you have doubts on the cruelty-free status for certain brands, please DM me ❤️ Shall I count you in? . . . . . #veganmalta #crueltyfreegozo #vegangozo #veganbeautygozo #veganbeautymalta #veganoffenburg #offenburgvegan #veganortenau #ortenauvegan #veganschwarzwald #schwarzwaldvegan #kinzigtalgoesvegan #badenwuerttemberg #BadenWürttemberg #veganbadenwürttemberg #veganbadenwuerttemberg #vegandeutschland #vegangermany #veganwerdenwaslosdigga #veganbloggerin #beautybloggerin #glutenfreemalta #palmoilfreemalta #staysafemalta #covid19malta #coronamalta #malta

  2. TUES 21.4 – MAKEUP PRODUCT
