Tell EPA: Dump toxic waste on animal tests
Action Alert from


White Coat Waste Project
April 2018


White Coat Waste Project has exposed how the Environmental Protection Agency is wasting millions of your tax dollars every year for cruel, misleading and outdated air pollution toxicity tests on animals that the agency acknowledges are slow, costly and ineffective.

The tests at EPA's National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory which uses 20,000 rabbits, mice, and other animals each year include:

  • animals forced to breathe diesel exhaust and smog
  • animals force-fed lard to make them obese and then exposed to air pollution
  • pregnant animals stressed with light and noise and babies given electric shocks

Is this how you want your money spent? Tell EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and Congress to dump this toxic waste and abuse!

To coincide with Tax Week 2018, White Coat Waste Project just launched a national campaign to defund the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) wasteful and deadly multi-million-dollar air pollution animal tests. Our exposé last month uncovered how your tax dollars are funding EPA tests on more than 20,000 animals annually that include forcing them to eat lard and then inhale diesel exhaust and smog.

We’ve also launched, an online advocacy campaign asking Americans to write EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Congress and urge them to cut funding for wasteful animal tests that experts and the EPA itself acknowledge are slow, costly and ineffective.

Legendary Republican political strategist Roger Stone penned an op-ed in The Daily Caller calling on President Trump to “drain the EPA swamp” by defunding the EPA’s animal tests.

This isn’t a partisan issue. Christian Broadcasting Network notes that new polling shows that an astounding 79 percent of Republicans and 68 percent of Democrats support cutting federal spending on EPA animal testing.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
