Victory! Victoria’s Secret Sheds Exotic Skins
Victoria’s Secret is cleaning out the skeletons in its closet catalogue. Thanks to a new policy by parent company Limited Brands, Victoria’s Secret and lingerie line La Senza will no longer sell exotic animal skins.
PETA’s undercover video footage has detailed the cold-blooded suffering that’s caused by the international exotic-skins trade, so it’s no longer any secret that snakes, crocodiles, lizards, kangaroos, and other animals are cruelly killed for their skins.
All that pain for a python purse or a croc clutch? Get real! I’ll stick with fashion accessories that have a killer look but don’t kill. And you can too: Pledge to shed any exotic skins in your own closet today!
