You may remember that back in December we let you know that Urban Outfitters was selling fur and asked you to write to the company asking them to stop selling fur. Guess what? They did!
After learning that Urban Outfitters was selling a fur-trimmed item, PETA wrote to the company privately to ask that it pull the item and adopt a fur-free policy. When the company didn’t respond, we issued an action alert urging people to write the company and encourage it to become fur-free. After receiving nearly 4000 emails from PETA members and peta2 Street Teamers, Urban Outfitters listened!
In an email to PETA, a representative wrote, “[T]here is no fur in our stores, and this will continue to be the case.”
Exciting, right? I’ve always loved Urban Outfitters, so I was sad when we found out they were selling fur. There’s just absolutely no excuse. Remember, Armani still refuses to stop selling fur. Write him now and ask him to stop butchering bunnies!
Thanks so much to each and every one of you who took the time to write to Urban Outfitters. Here’s to the day when no one would even dream of wearing fur!

Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
