Alligators Are Safe From Adidas
According to a statement on its website, athletic behemoth Adidas has sworn off the skins of exotic animals—including crocodiles, snakes, sharks, and fish—joining compassionate companies such as Nike and Cole Haan, H&M, Overstock.com, and Victoria’s Secret that rock the mock croc. Adidas also refuses to use fur or wool from sheep who were mulesed in any of its shoes or clothing.
|Like many animals used for their skin, snakes are often skinned alive, sometimes after being nailed to a tree.|
We applaud Adidas for making great strides for so many animals, and look forward to the day when all its footwear is faux.
