Urban Outfitters Forgoes Fur

January 2009


After learning that clothing chain Urban Outfitters was selling a fur-trimmed wrap, PETA wrote to the company privately to ask it to pull the item and adopt a fur-free policy.

After receiving nearly 4,000 e-mails from PETA members and peta2 Street Teamers, Urban Outfitters listened.
