“I am happy to be an Animal Ambassador, and applaud your project THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE. I personally opt to eat as low on the food chain as possible. I also exclusively use personal care products from companies like Arbonne, who are certified vegan. The use of animal by-products from rendering plants is widespread in beauty and skin care products, and totally unnecessary when there are pure, safe and beneficial options, and options that also include products that are cruelty free, and not tested on animals. I applaud your efforts to get the message out through your film. Consumers need to be educated about the source of our food, entertainment and personal care products.”
