Make Fur-Free Friday the Biggest Vegan Shopping Day of the Year

This holiday season, it’s time to get into the cruelty-free spirit and urge others to turn Black Friday into the biggest vegan shopping day of the year! We’re encouraging everyone to shop vegan this year by leaving fur, wool, down, angora, leather, and all products that cause harm to animals off of their shopping lists.

There are more options than ever for vegan gifts! Shoppers can help geese and ducks by purchasing luxurious down-free pillows and jackets. Give the gift of style without hurting animals by opting for nonleather handbags and shoes. Because they’ve heard from caring consumers like you, many retailers are dropping angora, including Gap, Banana Republic, and Eddie Bauer.

Our most recent investigation into the wool industry has people everywhere pledging to have a #WoolFreeWinter. Join us in reminding shoppers that there’s something for everyone when you #ShopVegan.
