Posted July 31, 2007 by peta2 staff

Less than two months after peta2 put out a call for phone calls and e-mails from Street Teamers, MySpace and Facebook friends, and other concerned people around the world, Burton Snowboards has committed to going fur-free. Thank you all for voicing your opposition to the fur industry and for supporting companies that take a stand against slaughtering animals for their fur! Burton prides itself on being environmentally conscious, so it’s great to see them extending their consideration to animals who are often beaten, drowned, or electrocuted to death on fur farms.

With Burton replacing its fur trim items with fake fur, the extreme sports community is even stronger than ever in uniting against cruelty to animals! In fact, to our knowledge, none of the major apparel companies in the snowboarding community uses real fur, including Ride, DC Shoes, and Volcom. To pledge your personal commitment to going fur-free, please sign the fur-free pledge here. Thanks to everyone for helping with this campaign!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
