Urge J.Crew to Drop Fur From Its Fall Line

PETA has learned that J.Crew will be selling fur in its fall line, despite claiming just last year that “J.Crew does not currently include fur in its collections nor does it plan to.” When we learned of the possibility that J.Crew would be selling fur, we wrote to J.Crew representatives and sent them a video containing recently released footage from a yearlong undercover investigation on fur farms in China, where most fur comes from – compelling evidence that selling fur means endorsing cruelty beyond imagination.
Animals need your help. Please let J.Crew know that not only is it bad business to promise one thing and do another, it is also totally unacceptable to support and promote this violent industry. Tell the company that you won’t shop at J.Crew unless it makes the compassionate decision not to sell fur, and tell your friends to do the same.
First things first, call J.Crew customer service, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 1-800-562-0258. The call is free to you, but costs J.Crew about $0.50 per call. Think about that the next time you walk by a payphone at the laundry mat, the gas station, or the mall. Once you’ve voiced your complaints to customer service, give these folks at J.Crew a ring as well:

    I cannot believe this. I am definitely giving them a call. This is horrible. You would think they would learn from observing the forever 21 and wet seal campaigns?? why do people believe this is acceptable?
