More Than 70 Brands Ban Badger Hair Following PETA Exposé!

Just a few months after PETA released an investigation into the production of badger hair, more than 70 brands worldwide—including Sherwin-Williams—confirmed that they’ll no longer source badger hair! Eyewitness video footage revealed that these social animals—some suffering with gaping wounds and missing limbs—were kept inside cramped cages before workers bludgeoned them and slit their throats. Despite this gruesome cruelty, some companies continue to sell items made from badger hair. Please urge Blick Art Materials, Morphe Brushes, and others to follow the example of the dozens of brands that have stopped buying and selling badger hair.
