bebe Stops Buying Fur but Keeps Selling It

Posted November 13, 2007 by Marta Holmberg

We’re happy to announce that after more than a year of education and negotiation with PETA (and e-mails from many of you), bebe has stopped buying fur! It’s definitely a step in the right direction, since no more animals will be killed for their fur for bebe’s clothing, but by continuing to sell items made of fur, bebe is sending its shoppers the message that it’s okay to wear an animal’s fur. Rabbits killed for their fur sometimes have their necks broken or have their skulls smashed before being strung up by their legs to slit their throats. Gruesome, isn’t it?

Clothing retailers J.Crew, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Wet Seal (who also happen to be some of bebe’s top competitors) all pulled fur from their shelves upon pledging to go fur-free, but bebe is still selling fur.

Please don’t shop at bebe this holiday season. Let’s send the company a message that while it’s great that they’ve pledged to go fur-free, we will only spend our hard-earned dollars at companies that are completely fur-free.

Itchin’ to help more animals killed for their fur? Write the CEO of Burberry, Angela Ahrendts, urging her to remove fur from Burberry’s collections permanently.

Oh, and if you haven’t yet, be sure to order your “I’m an asshole; I wear fur stickers.” ‘Nuff said.

Thanks so much for sticking up for those without a voice—we appreciate it a lot, but the animals appreciate it even more.

    I am so appalled by this news. I am an avid shopper at Bebe.I am there several times a month and cannot believe that I myself did not notice rabbit fur being sold. As much as I love Bebe if they do not pull these fur items off the shelf, I will be forced to discontinue shopping there.

    This needs to stop! I am an avid shopper at Bebe and I am sooo disappointed that I did not pick up on this fact on my own. I shop at Bebe several times a month. Please refrain from selling this merchandise or I too will be forced to stop shopping at your store.

    I am disgusted and sooo disappointed to have this fact pointed out to me. I shop at Bebe several times a month and cannot believe I have not picked up on this horrific sight myself. Please oh please refrain from selling this type of merchandise from your store or I too will be forced to stop shopping there.

    I will never shop at any store selling fur! It’s so cruel why can’t they just donate all the fur instead of promoting it. After all they said they were going ‘fur free’!
    Those hypocrites, lets just hope they can stop selling fur ASAP.

    i find it shameful for them to have said they were going to pull fhe fur and then just decide to keep it. i would never buy clothes or anything else from there ever. they are hypocrites and it sucks for them and their business that the world can see it.

    Bebe use to be one of my favorite stores until I found out that they STILL kill innocent bunnies for no reason. I do not see why anyone would ever want to buy bunny skin. I just makes me sick. I will never shop at bebe again until they pledge to never sell fur again.

    even though bebe is a store with nice clothes(and expensive price tags), i will not shop there, even when they do stop using fur because when one person is mean to aniamls, well then it is time to get revenge!

    thats pretty ridiculous.
    im really happy to hear that they went fur free though.
    the message their sending by not pulling fur from the shelves is just not right.
    just as a side note
    i really dont know how people can wear fur knowing what the animals have to go through.

    I’ve been to Bebe a few times, but I’ve never bought a product from there because of the animal fur you use. Maybe if you stopped this animal cruelty, I will buy something next time. So please stop!

    I’m very disappointed. I’ve bought quite a few things from your store, but i didn’t know you still sell fur. it’s simply cruel and i won’t buy anything from your store until you stop murdering innocent animals.

    I can’t believe they are still selling fur when they obviously know its wrong to take the lives of innocent animals just to steel their beauty! Its not okay to act like its fine if you wear animals. I will not buy anything from them as long as they sell fur and I will inform others of what they are selling as well.

    I’m glad they’ve decided to go fur-free, but in my eyes it doesn’t really count unless they stop the use of ALL fur. Until they stop using rabbits fur I will tell everyone I know to stop shopping there.
    Honestly, if that were your rabbit, would you like someone to take him/her from your home and do all those horrific things to him/her? I don’t think so, you’d love that animal and would want to protect it. So what’s the difference here? It’s not yours? Who cares. It’s still an animal getting tourchered for fashion. Rediculous.

    Cut the Vanity, BeBe! There is no reason to kill innocent animals in order to satisfy your superficial costumers. If fake fur is just as real looking, why not use that? It is the friendly way to continue your fashion ideals, without the suffering of animals. Have you yet to realize you’re wearing the skin (skin!) of animals? Obviously not.

    I think it’s very terrible people are still using fur, considering there is now faux fur. Which by the way looks uber cute.
    Animals should not be killed so we can look like idiots walking around with fur on us..
    I WILL NOT SHOP AT BEBE UNTIL THE FUR IS GONE!!

    The selling of fur clothing is absolutely disgusting and completely unnecessary in my book. I refuse to shop at your stores and I will ask my friends to stop shopping there, as well, until you remove fur from your shelves. Please stop selling fur. Think about the animals..

    Bebe is the only place I used to shop, until I bought a jacket online, that did not state that it had Rabbit Fur in it. I wrote them an e-mail very upset and they never got back to me. Now I have this 200 dollar jacket and I can not return it because I misplaced the receipt. I am so angry and I will NOT be shopping there again, until they are 100% FUR FREE!!!!!!!!
    AND I LIKE TO SHOP A LOT!!!!! THEY ARE LOSING A VERY GOOD CUSTOMER. OH WELL. I WILL SHOP SOME WHERE ELSE THAT IS FUR FREE

    Just because the only way you think you make your clothes look nice is by using fur you are so wrong….Use your own skin and hair see if you’d like that. Then you could leave those poor little harmless animals alone……..

    I have bought many items of clothing from BEBE in the past,and would have NEVER if I would have known about this. They should be ashamed and as some one else has mentioned previously, they need to made into coats them selves. What a dispicable practice.

    any establishment or individual that takes away the natural rights of living creatures deserves nothing but to be made into coats like the animals they torture and murder.

    Bebe needs to be ashamed of themselves. I will not be buying anymore of their clothing. Once I found out what their were doing I immediately stopped buying their products. Anyone who condones or wears FUR is a FUR hag and doesn’t feel comfortable in their own skin.
    Those babies miss their mother is she sewned on your jacket?
    PS. if you have fur jackets and choose to get rid of them call the United Humane Society they will take those furs and give them to baby animals whose parents have been victim o the fur trade.

    It’s horrible that they keep selling it after they said they wouldn’t. This makes me very angry, because bunnies or any other animal shouldn’t suffer at all. I will definitely not buy from bebe and I will also tell my friends to stop buying from them as well.
