Pledge never to wear exotic skins!
Snakes who are killed to make purses, belts, and other accessories have their bodies cut open from one end to the other before their skin is ripped off. Then they’re tossed aside to struggle and writhe in pain for hours or even days until they die. The majority of alligators used to make purses and shoes are raised in crowded, fetid tanks filled with feces and urine. These animals are stabbed, beaten, or clubbed until they stop moving.
I couldn’t believe that that is what happens for a wallet or a purse.
There are tons of fashionable and cruelty-free alternatives to real animal skins. Fake snake, mock croc, and pleather are just a few of the synthetic materials used to achieve the same look—without stealing someone else’s skin. Popular retailers such as Victoria’s Secret, H&M, and Nike have all signed PETA’s pledge promising never to sell exotic skins.
