The cold weather isn’t quite here yet, but the evenings are getting rather chilly even in sunny Los Angeles. Who’s ready for vegan hot chocolate and snuggly wool-free sweaters? I am, I am! Get prepared now by winning this awesome PETA Navy Tundra Hat! It’s warm, comfy, and, best of all, 100 percent cruelty-free!
Animals killed for fur suffer horribly, but they aren’t just killed for fur coats. Companies try to sneak real fur into your wardrobe with a little fur trim on a jacket hood, a pair of gloves, or even on a key chain. Remember: Even just a tiny bit of fur caused an animal terrible pain and ultimately his or her death.
So make sure you always check that your clothes are cruelty-free and let your friends and family know why real fur is G-R-O-S-S! Heck, see a random student in the hall wearing a foxtail? Why not start a polite conversation about where it came from? Most people love animals, and you’d be surprised how many people have no idea how animals used for their fur are treated. Change a mind and save lives while looking fashionable and staying cruelty-free with faux fur!
