Twilight star Ashley Greene has been honoured by animal rights organization PETA with a new 'Kind Choices Award'.
The 23-year-old actress has been honoured for signing on as the new face of Avon cosmetics, the first major cosmetics company to adopt a cruelty-free policy and has ended all animal testing of its products and ingredients since 1989, AceShowbiz reported."For teaming up with the cosmetic company, which also has a foundation to work against breast cancer Greene will receive a framed certificate and a card signed by PETA staffers," said Amanda Schinke, PETA spokeswoman.
"Ashley and Avon are to be congratulated for encouraging millions of Twilight fans and other young people to choose makeup that's fun, not fatal. Thanks to cruelty-free companies such as Avon, you can get a to-die-for look that no animals had to die for," said Kathy Guillermo, PETA Vice President of Laboratory Investigations.
