At Phoenix, we are against the sale and use of animal-derived products in Chinese medicine, so we are exceptionally proud to announce our latest partnership with Animals Asia!
Animals Asia’s vision is to end cruelty and restore respect for all animals throughout Asia. Their mission is to end the farming of bears for bile in Vietnam and China, to provide sanctuary for bears and end the suffering of wild animals in captivity.
There is thought to be over 10,000 bears kept on bile farms in China with an additional 1,200 in Vietnam. Animals Asia is committed to putting an end to the bear bile trade and has currently rescued over 500 bears.
We are extremely proud to be working with a like-minded charity and with the support of our customers, we are convinced that we will be able to support Animals Asia and aid the rescue of many more bears.
Healing Without Harm
Since the birth of our company, it has always been Phoenix’s code of conduct to not supply animal products and we believe all Chinese medicine suppliers should adhere to the same practice. It is against the law to supply animal products for herbal medicine, however some suppliers in the EU continue to ignore the law. We plan to work with Animals Asia to help raise awareness and fundraise to aid in the ending bear bile farming and other animals affected by the practice of Chinese medicine.
We are fortunate to have a platform that spans over 24 countries which allows us to help raise awareness not only in the UK but also across Europe. As we only supply authentic and safe products, we hope that our valued customers share the same ideology and will support our ‘Healing Without Harm’ campaign with Animals Asia.
To kickstart the campaign, we will be donating 10p per order for every order placed to Animals Asia. Customers also have the opportunity to donate any amount at the checkout when they place an order. We have plenty in store to help us raise money and awareness for Animals Asia, including donation packs which will allow you to show your support in your clinics. We also have infographics, Instagram posts #SubstituteSaturday and blog posts which you can share with your clients. All proceeds go directly to Animals Asia.
