Los Angeles – Following communications with PETA, Carbon38 has banned fur—including Canada Goose’s cruel fur jackets. In thanks, PETA has sent the company a box of delicious bunny-shaped vegan chocolates.
“Kudos to Carbon38 for acting to help stop the barbaric killing of animals for their fur,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Kind shoppers can do their part by opting for cozy PETA-approved vegan clothing that no animal suffered and died for.”
PETA has conducted numerous video investigations of the global fur industry, revealing that animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages. Fur farmers use the cheapest killing methods available, including neck-breaking, suffocation, poisoning, and genital electrocution. Animals are sometimes still alive and struggling when workers hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them.
Carbon38 joins hundreds of top designers and retailers—including Macy’s, Burberry, Gucci, Versace, and Michael Kors—in banning fur, and PETA is rallying the public to demand that Canada Goose follow suit.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
