- PETA has launced a “Be Nice to Bunnies” searchable application for your iPhone or iPod touch. It helps you make an informed decision about cruelty-free purchasing anywhere, anytime, at home or in-store. Search by brand, manufacturer or by product category, and view a full list of ‘Do’ and ‘Don’t’ test companies. Companies and products that are vegan (don’t contain animal byproducts) are also noted.
The app is available for purchase from the iTunes store for $1.99. You can check out this link for more information on the app and to watch a demo video.
