You wouldn’t want someone to beat you, slit your throat, or skin you alive, would you? Yeah, we didn’t think so. Sounds awful, right? But guess what? Every time you buy a product made from animal skins, you’re telling a company that it’s OK to do this to someone else.
Every year, more than 1 billion cows, sheep, snakes, and other animals are killed for their skin. They have their throats slit and their bodies hacked into pieces, they’re beaten to death with hammers and axes, and some are even skinned alive. All of this is done so that their skin can be turned into jackets, belts, shoes, and purses for humans—even though cruelty-free alternatives exist.
Want to know what you can do to help? Pledge not to wear animals’ skins, and share the images below with everyone you know to spread the word that animals should be loved—not worn!
