BREAKING NEWS: Tommy Hilfiger Sheds Fur

Posted March 14, 2007 by Marta Holmberg

Yep, you read it right: After months of discussions with PETA, Tommy Hilfiger has pledged to ban fur from its collections. “Starting immediately, the company will cease development of any product containing fur, and any fur garment already in production will be phased out of sales channels by the delivery of the spring 2008 collection,” Tommy Hilfiger Corp. announced in a statement. Are you as excited as I am about this?!

“Tommy’s anti-fur policy will spare countless animals from becoming fashion victims,” says PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews, who has had ongoing discussions with Hilfiger since last summer.

The conditions that exist on fur farms in China—where more than half of the fur products sold in the United States originate—are the worst imaginable. Cats and dogs on fur farms in China are crammed into wire cages, slammed on the ground, and skinned alive for their fur, which is often deliberately mislabeled as fur from other species. Tommy Hilfiger joins other companies like Forever 21, J.Crew, Wet Seal, and Polo Ralph Lauren in pledging never to sell fur again. Follow their compassionate example and sign the fur-free pledge today at peta2.com/iamfurfree.

This is another amazing victory for animals. Looks like the big-wigs are taking notice that no one wants to support an industry that skins animals alive!

    I am so happy to “hear” this news! Now I can shop at these places again. Humanity is making progress…
    A word to other companies, if you’re reading this, I personally bolt out of stores when I see fur and I never return, and I know I am not the only one. Vegans and vegetarians love fashion too, and we even spend money!

    i think this is great.
    im tired of people acting like animals are below us.
    when humans are animals.
    and we dont own animals. and shouldnt think we can treat them and use them as we please.
    its completly ludacris.

I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
