Whether it comes from an animal raised on a fur farm or trapped in nature, every fur coat, accessory, or trim is the product of tremendous suffering. Each year, 100 million animals are killed in the fur industry. Staying warm does not need to come at the expense of someone else’s life—it’s their skin and fur, not yours. Fur is definitely out, and the vegan revolution is here. Vegan furs are available in most clothing stores, and PETA continues to work with designers and clothing retailers to encourage them to enact fur bans and to use and sell only animal-free fabrics. What’s truly shocking is that some out-of-touch companies, such as Shopbop, continue to sell fur.
The following companies and fashion brands are just a few of the hundreds that have banned fur:

Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages. Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gassing, and poisoning.
More than half the fur in the U.S. comes from China, where millions of dogs and cats are bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and often skinned alive for their fur. Fur from China is often deliberately mislabeled—so if you wear any animal fur, there’s no easy way of knowing whose skin you’re in.

What You Can Do to Help Animals
The many companies on this list—just some of the hundreds that refuse to sell fur—are proof of the progress being made for animals, but other fashion brands continue to exploit and kill them. Please, never wear or buy garments made of or trimmed with fur.
