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

fur free collage

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 and celebrate 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.

Join us in reminding shoppers that there’s something for everyone when you shop vegan. Spread the word about the Fur-Free Friday events listed below, and RSVP to the event on Facebook.


Want to take part in the Fur-Free Friday festivities this year? Here’s how!

Encourage the throngs of holiday shoppers who converge on shopping centers the day after Thanksgiving to ditch fur, wool, leather, down, angora and to purchase only cruelty-free items. Check out the current event listings below to find a Fur-Free Friday demo near you.

Can’t attend an event but still want to get involved? Spread the word about the Fur-Free Friday events listed below.

Together we can make this Fur-Free Friday a big success!
