Adidas Bans Exotic Skins

Posted June 30, 2011 by peta2 staff

According to a statement on its website, Adidas has sworn off the skins of exotic animals—including crocodiles, snakes, sharks, and fish—joining compassionate companies such as NikeH&MOverstock.com, and Victoria’s Secret that rock the mock croc. Adidas also refuses to use fur or wool from sheep who were mulesed in any of its shoes or clothing.

Kudos to Adidas for making great strides for so many animals. We look forward to the day when all its footwear is faux.

    I feel like calling a company like Nike “compassionate” is a bit of a stretch. We’ve all heard about the child labor and sweatshops.
