Los Angeles – During the lead-up to the 62nd GRAMMY Awards®, PETA representatives will be backstage in the official Gift Lounge with a unique gift for presenters and performers: a luxurious vegan NOIZE coat and a PETA “Animal” beanie.
“While companies like Canada Goose use the down and fur of geese and coyotes who were violently killed, NOIZE’s high-tech, on-trend vegan coats are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “PETA looks forward to showing music’s biggest stars how warm, comfortable, and stylish an eco- and animal-friendly coat can be.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—wants consumers to know that Canada Goose’s “standards” allow coyotes to be left in steel traps for days with broken bones and bleeding wounds before they’re shot or bludgeoned to death. Birds used for down are typically stunned, their throats are cut, and they’re plunged into scalding-hot defeathering tanks in slaughterhouses.
