Alternatives to Laboratory Animals (ATLA): a special issue

mark-300x231Approaching his 60th birthday, after seeing years of campaigning against animal testing, founder of Lush Cosmetics Mark Constantine felt frustrated that rather than progress being made things were actually moving in the wrong direction.

So Lush joined forces with Ethical Consumer magazine to launch a unique prize that would give the fight against animal testing a much needed boost. The problem is a complex one but The Lush Prize has been designed with this complexity in mind, aiming to address a range of obstacles to progress.

In a special edition of the ATLA journal you can find out how the launch of the initiative in 2012 was a breakthrough year. With articles from the award winners across all categories, as well as from the judges, the journal is an inspiring read.

The Journal articles are freely available here on the FRAME website.
