Major Footwear Company Bans Fur!

After meeting with PETA, shoe retailer BEARPAW agreed to ban fur! This compassionate decision will prevent countless gentle animals from being born onto cruel fur farms, only to spend their entire miserable lives inside cramped, filthy cages before being gassed, poisoned, bludgeoned, or electrocuted. We’re delighted that BEARPAW is joining the hundreds of designers and retailers—including Burberry, YOOX Net-A-Porter, and Zappos—that use only vegan fur. Please urge Paragon Sports to follow their example by dropping fur.
