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!
