I don’t know about you guys, but when I hit the mall, H&M is one of the first places I go. H&M is known as an industry leader in all things stylish and cruelty-free—and they’ve recently made all compassionate shoppers even happier, by implementing a policy against selling all exotic skins! Because of this huge announcement, H&M is the recipient of our Company of the Year Proggy Award. H&M’s announcement to no longer sell exotic skins came after we sent a copy of our new expose to the universally loved retailer. (Seriously, H&M is like apparel candy: affordable and deliciously fashionable, and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love them.)
Millions of animals—including zebras, bison, water buffaloes, boars, deer, kangaroos, elephants, eels, sharks, dolphins, seals, walruses, frogs, crocodiles, lizards, and snakes—are slaughtered every year for the global leather industry. Check out peta2’s new “Cold Blooded Fashion” video below, and take the pledge never to wear exotic skins now!

Many animals who are stripped of their skin for fashion are skinned alive and then tossed onto a pile where they writhe in pain until they succumb to shock or dehydration, while other animals sometimes live in agony for up to four days after they lose their flesh. H&M’s new policy sends the message that kindness is always in style. Follow these companies’ lead: Take our pledge and declare that the only skin you’ll ever wear is your own!

Stay loud!

    This is truly aweful and makes me feel sick! Fashion has so many other ways it can capture consumers and consumers have so many other choices! Lets really do something about this and stop this cruel torture of these beautiful creatures! There are important issues to address in the world today, and animal cruelty is one that should be at the top. These retailers need to be exposed for what they are willingly buying, and I for one would like to do what I can to educate people on making wiser and cruelty-free purchasing decisions.

    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!
