PETA Asia's horrifying investigation into China's badger-brush industry revealed that badgers on farms are locked inside small, filthy cages, where they're deprived of the opportunity to dig, care for their young, forage for food, or do anything else that would make their lives worth living. After PETA shared the video footage, Procter & Gamble's The Art of Shaving, Beau Brummell, Olivina Men, The New York Shaving Company, Morphe, NARS, and many other companies made the compassionate decision to ban badger hair. We need your help to urge companies still profiting from the badger-hair industry to drop brushes made from the cruelly obtained fiber immediately.
PETA Asia's investigation shows that highly social badgers pace back and forth and circle endlessly inside the cramped cages in a desperate attempt to escape their physical and psychological anguish. Many go insane in these conditions. Footage shows a slaughterhouse worker bashing them in the head with a chair leg, and one badger was still moving for a full minute after his throat was cut. There's no acceptable reason to use brushes that contain animal hair, whether for makeup, grooming, or art supplies—especially when there are so many high-performing, vegan bristles available.
