Delia's clothing company used to be one of several retailers that sold Ringling Bros. T-shirts.
I say "used to be" because today, the company's CEO contacted us to say that Delia's will be pulling the shirts from its Web site, its stores, and its October catalog by this Friday, September 11.
Thanks to the countless concerned people who took the time to write and call the company to ask it to stop promoting Ringling's cruel treatment of animals.
We hope that you'll take a second to write to Delia's and thank it for making the compassionate decision.

In news from the "elefriend" front, yet another kind company has promised to stop promoting Ringling Bros.
After talking to some very persuasive PETA peeps and learning that Ringling beats elephants when it thinks no one is watching, Spanish women's clothing chain Zara has vowed to pull all Ringling T-shirts from the racks of its more than 1,300 international stores.
Gracias, Zara, and might we suggest carrying this trendy tee instead?
